Since this episode was produced for season 7, there are many noticeable differences from season 8. For example, the kitchen has not yet been remodeled, Cliff is still wearing his Sammy Davis Jr. tribute pin, and Vanessa is off at college (Tempestt Bledsoe missed many of the episodes during season 7, and this is one of them).
In the scene when Cliff and the girls are at the table, you can see the food on the plates changing in every clip.
Geoffrey Owens and Tempestt Bledsoe do not appear in this episode. Malcolm-Jamal Warner also is not seen, but his voice is heard briefly.
This episode, produced for season seven, did not air until the following season.
