Just a useless piece of trivia... Hank says: "I've never treated a public figure before, except for the Maytag guy." The Maytag repairman from the long-running campaign was played by the late Gordon Jump. Jump costarred in the first season of "Soap," which was created by Nurses creator Susan Harris. He later became better known as Arthur "Big Guy" Carlson on WKRP, which he co-starred on with Loni Anderson. Anderson was added to the cast of Nurses the following season.
