The chime used at the theatre to alert the audience that intermission is ending was actually the NBC chime.
Paul: Oh look honey, my schmecky is in the Post.
Paul: He.. you know.. he embarrassed me!
Jamie: Well, you embarrass me sometimes.
Paul: When? When did I embarrass you?
Jamie: Pick a day!
Paul: Why don't we just get an unlisted phone?
Jamie: Forget it, I already talked to the phone company.
Jamie: They agree with Burt.
Paul talks to his mother on the phone, but her voice is not heard which is probably because no one was cast in her role yet.
First episode for recurring star Louis Zorich as Paul's father Burt Buchman.
