  • Trivia

    • Goof: At the end of the episode, there's a joke where Jerry says that his real name is Gary. The previous director called him "Jerry" and he was too timid to correct him, so he'd been known as Jerry ever since. However, in "Time Capsule", April reads from Jerry's mother's diary and says "Jerrold starred in his school production of Peter Pan".
