David tells Herbert to run a check on a silver stretch limo; but when Herbert goes to the police station, he describes the car as being white.
Guest star Eddie Mekka, who here portrays Bert's cousin Guido Viola, played Carmine Ragusa on 'Happy Days' and 'Laverne & Shirley.'
While talking to Carla in the car, Richie complains that "b-u-t" are the three most insiduous "words" in the English language. He probably meant to say "letters," because he goes on to refer to "but" as the "one word that separates people from their dreams."
The modeling industry may have high standards, but it's still a little hard to buy David (Bruce Willis) as the "average, run of the mill guy" the man running the ad campaign seems to want.
Herbert is clean-shaven when his male co-workers catch him making out with Agnes in the closet, as well as when they take him back to the office to lecture him. However, when David enters in the midst of the lecture, Herbert turns to face him and suddenly has his usual amount of stubble. (If this was supposed to be intentional--some joke about how fast his beard grows--it was a little too subtle to work.)
David has been talking to the receptionist at the mental hospital for less than a minute when the alarm sounds because Herbert and a patient are fighting. The dispute is apparently over a ping pong game, which Herbert claims to have won 15-13. For that to be true, each point would have taken an average of two seconds. That is not possible.
As Agnes, Herbert and MacGillicudy discuss the case in the middle of the office, they mistakenly refer to Dennis Spring as "Michael" many, many times.
Continuity error: In the storyline, it is said that the lavish nuptials of this episode were planned because Maddie, whose real first ceremony was in a Vegas chapel, "missed having a big church wedding."
Wait a second. She's an atheist.
David tells Mr. Hayes that he asked Maddie to marry him and she turned him down. When exactly did this happen? It seems like this would have been an important enough event that it could have happened on-camera. In addition, in the previous episode, the inmates were all nagging David to propose to Maddie. Wouldn't he have tried to get them off his case by telling them that he had already proposed and been turned down, if this actually happened?
At the beginning of the episode, Maddie uses a remote control to change the channels on a television that uses dials, not a remote!
Kay Lenz, who plays Ellen in this episode, went on to (among other roles) play the voice of the character American Maid in the animated series, 'The Tick.'
The title is a reference to two things: Ralph Kramden's line "To the moon, Alice, to the moon!" in The Honeymooners, parodied as The Blue Mooners in this episode; and the early science fiction film A Trip to the Moon, to which the flying scene bears some resemblance.
Continuity error: During the scene when Agnes and Maddie go drinking, watch as the bartender takes the order and places both drinks down.
Then the camera cuts again to a view of the bartender putting a glass in front of Maddie.
Afterwards, it's back to a view of the women sitting there. Check the bar, though: it appears as if there's only ever been one drink by Maddie.
It's not happy hour, since the story indicated it was late at night when they went to the bar. Also, Agnes has only one glass at this point too. It's obvious someone forgot to edit out the second shot of the bartender.
During the fistfight between Sam and Dave in the garage, even though Sam is standing in half the frame, it is clear David's right shoulder hits the wall first when Sam throws him. Yet later on, when David is in Maddie's room and he talks about taking "these pain pills," he feels his left shoulder.
There is an "Easter egg" (a visual in-joke) about 18 minutes into the episode. During the scene when Maddie walks into her office and explains to David her plans for the day, she is carrying an extra dress in a garment cover. That's the outfit she's going to wear on a date with her boyfriend Sam later that night. Look at the dress cover just after Maddie places it on a stand. Across the front of it is the name Turturice--as in Robert Turturice, who was the costume designer for the show.
Although the first three episodes in this four-show cycle take their names from the world of music, none of the artists or records involved actually have their songs played. Blonde on Blonde is a Bob Dylan album. Sam and Dave were a singing group. "Maddie's Turn to Cry" borrows from the title of the song, "Judy's Turn to Cry." Not one of these will have a tune played during the shows, nor will there be any other references to them other than the name-checks in the episode titles.
When David is in the strangers' room and turns around to see the woman, he yells, "You're not Maddie!" He is clearly looking in the direction of the woman, who turns out to be Joan Tenewich. However, later on when they're in jail, Joan asks (something to the effect of), "So, this Maddie you're looking for. Who's he?" She should already know David was not looking for a "he."
During the flashback clip of the scene in Brother, Can You Spare a Blonde? where Maddie dances with David's brother Richard, the song (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman by Aretha Franklin is heard.
However, in the original episode Brother itself, the song used at that moment was If Only You Knew by Patti Labelle.
The reason for the difference is not known.
Pierce Brosnan appears as his character from the NBC series Remington Steele in this episode.
This episode and the subsequent 'The Straight Poop' both end with kiss scenes. Oddly enough, however, neither of these events is ever referred to again by any character, script or plot point. Not even the 'arc' storyline about the characters' relationship makes mention of the kisses. Were they even meant to be seen as real? Were they part of a dream?
