    • TRIVIA (2)

      • This is the only episode ever on the show to ever mention Christmas. It seems the most of the episodes takes place either in the summer or in the fall!

      • At the purse party "Crazy" holds up a purse with shoes on it. When we see her from behind, you can clearly see that she's holding up a different purse. The on the shoe-purse the handles are hanging down, but on the other one they are standing straight up.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • The Mensch Who Stole Christmas :
        Charlotte's nickname for the rabbi who tells her to give up observing Christmas as part of her conversion refers to Dr. Seuss's 1957 book The Grinch Who Stole Christmas , adapted into a perennial TV special by Chuck Jones in 1966 and into a live-action movie starring Jim Carrey in 2000.
