      • This episode was taped on February 1, 1985.

      • When Comedy Central aired this episode in the mid-1990's, portions of the "For Ever Love" sketch and French seaside cabaret number were cut, as was the transition between the Fred Scuttle interview and the beginning of "Hullo Sailor," as well as a few seconds of the latter sketch.

      • The outdoor scenes in the closing chase sketch "Hullo, Sailor" were filmed at Thorpe Park in Surrey, England.

      • This show was issued on VHS in 1998 by HBO Video under the title "Golden Grins" in the second Golden Laughter collection.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • ANNOUNCER (Henry McGee): Personal callers at Charlesworth House, 584 High Street . . . Bombay, India.

        The "Charlesworth House" reference at the end of the "For Ever Love" sketch was named for Peter Charlesworth, a former song-plugger turned theatrical agent in Britain whom Benny had known since the 1950's. His agency had represented, at one time or another, some current or former Hill-associated supporting players, most famously Louise English - but not, ironically enough, Hill himself, despite their long-standing friendship.
