Brenda: Carlton, what's the idea of letting Lenny in when I wasn't here?
Carlton: But he said he loved you! We don't get many of those.
Brenda: Rhoda, you have no reason to feel guilty about Carlton.
Rhoda: Brenda, I got the poor guy fired. Other people could start drinking. He can't even do that.
Brenda: Yeah, it's pretty hard to end up in the gutter when you never really left.
Carlton's Mother: You have to have a little understanding of my boy. You know who his father was?
Carlton's Mother: Me neither.
The intro sequence this season changes from the first season's narration. The cartoon visuals and Rhoda's short autobiography are replaced by clips from the past episodes and the theme sung by children (in the form of "la's").
Ruth Gordon was nominated for an Emmy in the Outstanding Single Performance by a Supporting Actor in a Comedy or Drama Series category for her work on this episode.
