  • Trivia

    • When Elvin asks Theo if he was ever just friends with an attractive girl, Theo says that he was, but it wasn't his choice. What about the girl he was seen with during Season 4's "Home for the Weekend?" Theo asserted that she was just his friend.

    • This episode marks the last time we see Sondra and Elvin's apartment in Greenwich Village.

    • Goof: At the end of this episode, Vanessa and Rudy are worried Sondra will fix the brakes in Elvin's car to go out when he's driving alone, as Humphrey Bogart did to his wife in the movie "Conflict". However, in "Conflict", Bogart's character killed his wife before fixing her car to go off the mountain.

    • If this girl went to college with Elvin, then how come Sondra doesn't know her? After all it was pretty much established during the third season that Sondra and Elvin went to college together.
