  • Trivia

    • Goof: When Stanley arrives at the house and meets Kenny, he tells Rudy that he assumed Kenny was her brother. Stanley said earlier that he grilled Theo for information about Rudy in order to get her phone number, so Theo would have mentioned that he's her only brother.

  • Notes

    • Deon Richmond and Merlin Santana would work together two more time: NBC/ABC's Getting By and the movie "Da Blues." Sadly, "Da Blues" would be their last collaboration because Merlin was killed before the movie was released.

    • Two years later, Sandra Quarterman and Raven-Symone would play mother and daughter on Hangin' with Mr. Cooper.
