George tells Mr. Bentley that Monk Davis has hustled him before - the day he and Louise got married. However, when Monk Davis shows up in George's apartment, he asks who the "pretty momma" is. How could he not know if he was there when they were married?
As Mother Jefferson is storming out of the apartment half way into the episode, she drops her purse, but does not stop to pick it up.
This was the first appearance of Alan Willis. The character will return for eight episodes in the fifth season, but played by a different actor (Jay Hammer).
When Helen is dressing, watch the fancy pin on her green dress, it appears and disappears at times.
Probably a made-up headline from a made-up newspaper (Sunday News), the paper Louise is reading at the top of this episode has this as it's headline: "Find Twin Dogs Dead In Posh Pail." If you look closely, the design to the cover of Sunday News is reminiscent of the New York Daily News cover. The writers of this episode were probably just poking fun at the absurd headlines you often will find on a newspaper in New York.
Throughout the whole episode, the living room balcony door is either open a crack or completely shut without seeing anyone having the time to open/shut it.

In the final scene of this episode, George arrives home with a ticket for a cruise to the Bahamas for Mother Jefferson. Louise mistakenly thinks it's for her and tells George that she gets sea sick. In the first season, the Jeffersons are planning a cruise and there is no mention of Louise's sea sickness.
After Tom and Helen grab pillows off the sofa, the brown one is the only one that's left on the sofa. A few seconds later, Helen is holding the brown one and the yellow one is left on the sofa. Then it switches back to the brown one being on the sofa, then back to the yellow one being there.
Riddle: How can a martini pitcher be unbreakable one moment and breakable the next? Well, if you look very closely, you'll see two martini pitchers on the bar.

When Florence's mother is sitting on the sofa with George, the door leading to the back bedrooms is open. The camera flashes to Louise and then the door is closed. In a split second, it flashes back and the door is open again.
