Teri Hatcher was considered for the role of Jamie Buchman, but lost at the final auditions to Helen Hunt. A year later, Teri went to star in ABC's Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman.
For the first few episodes, the dog that played the character, Murray, was nameless. Every time someone yelled for him or referred to him, he was called, "The Dog".
Paul Reiser plays the piano in each opening episode credits.
Murray, the Buchman's dog is played by a dog named Smiley, but from episode two he has been replaced by Maui, who seemed to fit the role better.
This is the first episode for recurring stars Leila Kenzle (Fran Devanow) and Richard Kind (Mark Devanow). They both become regulars later this season.
