    • After this episode aired, ABC put Soap on hiatus for more than a month. When it returned to air, ABC had moved Soap from its Wednesday night timeslot to Mondays at 9:00 p.m. where it ran in one-hour installments to burn off the remaining episodes.

    • In its original run, this episode ended with a specially-narrated cliffhanger that speculated on the identity of Danny's father ("Is it Chester, Benson, Burt Reynolds, or Mr. X?" the narrator asks.) This does not appear in syndication but does appear in the Columbia House videotapes. It's not much of a cliffhanger really and was obviously thrown together hastily to generate a little suspense to carry the show's audience to March after "Soap" was pulled from ABC's schedule during February sweeps. It was a clear sign then that "Soap" was is trouble.
