  • Notes

    • The title of this episode, and the related situation, is based on The Odd Couple, which started in the mid-1960's as Neil Simon's famous Broadway play, then was seen as a motion picture starring Walter Matthau and Jack Lemmon in 1967. It was followed by a successful ABC television series (1970-1975) that starred Tony Randall and Jack Klugman (later reprised in a series of Eagle Snacks commercials. An unsuccessful Black version was seen on ABC during the 1982-1983(?) season, which starred Ron Glass (a cop on Barney Miller & Randy Carmichael on Rugrats) and Demond Wilson (Lamont Sanford on Sanford and Son). Later, there was yet another version featuring women in the title roles (don't know if this was a TV movie or played on stage). The latest, currently touring the US, stars Jamie Farr and William Christopher, both former regulars on the hit TV series, M*A*S*H (CBS, 1972-1983).

    • Also note the "Pelvis" stamps in this episode, that Phil and Lil are putting on each other (so they can be shipped to China). These stamps look very similar to those famous stamps featuring "The King Of Rock & Roll", Elvis Presley. In 1993, the U.S. Postal Service invited the public to vote on what kind of Elvis is more appropriate, the old Elvis (in the days of his appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show (1950's)), or the new Elvis (the "Vegas" period, since his 1968 "comeback")). America has chosen the old design, the one that Phil and Lil were sticking on each other.
