      Will: Ashley, if you found out the only person in the world who would go out with was mentally deranged, you'd go to bed too.

  • Notes

    • In syndication, part 2 uses the short opening.

    • This is one of the few episodes to feature the opening immediately into the episode with no prologue scene.

    • On the Season 1 DVD set, several scenes from this episode are in a different sequence on the DVD version than they are in the syndicated version, e.g., some scenes that are aired in part 1 appear in what is part 2 in the syndicated version.

  • Allusions

    • In one of Carlton's fantasy flashbacks, Will and his date are being hassled by thugs, so he comes to the rescue in a pin-striped suit and moonwalks after the fight scene to music that is similar to Smooth Criminal. This is an allusion to Michael Jackson's 1988 Moonwalker video.

    • The waitress dressed up as Cinderella speaks of two ugly step-sisters and other characters, which are found in Charles Perrault's 1697 version of the fairy tale entitled Cinderella.
