Since the episode was going to air days after the New York City mayoral election, the production crew's solution was to produce two different versions of the episode:
-One in which Dinkins won.
-One in which Giuliani won.
The cast would record a line mentioning Dinkins, followed by the same line, with Dinkins's name substituted with Giuliani's. After Giuliani was declared the winner, the corresponding version aired on television. Giuliani's cameo was filmed on the morning after his victory. Both versions of the episode were included on the Season 5 DVD.
