      • This is the only episode of the season that credits all ten actors of the Doumanian cast:

        Starring: Denny Dillon, Gilbert Gottfried, Gail Matthius, Joe Piscopo, Ann Risley, and Charles Rocket
        Featuring: Yvonne Hudson, Matthew Laurance, Eddie Murphy, and Patrick Weathers

      • The monologue delivered by Murphy near the end of this episode was originally delivered by Murphy during his audition for Neil Levy. Levy enjoyed it so much, he begged Doumanian to hire him on the spot. This monologue was a last-minute addition made at the suggestion of Levy when director Dave Wilson discovered during the broadcast that the show didn't have enough material to fill ninety minutes.

      • Some of the regular cast members were upset that then-featured player Eddie Murphy was going to deliver the "Live from New York..." opening line. Barry Blaustein and David Sheffield, the opening sketch's writers, defended Murphy by saying "Come on, he's funny. He deserves it."
