  • TRIVIA (1)

    • The layout of the hotel is different in this episode than it is in the later episode, "You've Lost That Livin' Feeling." In this episode, the walk-in freezer lies beyond the kitchen's back door (it later appears within the kitchen). Chuy's room is upstairs, but Blanche later talks about the staff quarters that Chuy lives in behind the hotel.
