  • Trivia

    • The scene in which Will and Carlton try to convince Geoffrey to quit his job at the restaurant is reminiscent of a scene in The Blues Brothers , where Jake and Elwood are trying to get Mr. Fabulous to quit his job as a Maitre d'.

    • When asking Geoffrey to make him a sandwich, Carlton refers to him as "G" for the first time in the series. The butler's nickname is more often heard from Will, who first coined it.

    • Goof: In the scene where Will and Carlton hustle Geoffrey, Geoffrey loses the game because he picks up a red queen instead of a black one. However, when the card is facing the camera, it is very clearly the Queen of Spades, which is one of the two black queens in the deck. Geoffrey actually won the game.
