Jerry Van Dyke had previously appeared with Mary Tyler Moore on a few episodes of The Dick Van Dyke Show.
Goof: When Wes walks into Mary's kitchen after finding out he didn't get the news anchor job, the film freezes after the door closes long enough for him to say something and then it unfreezes and he walks back out from the kitchen.
Mary: Wes is sweet, he's got a great sense of humor...he's the kind of guy you should meet.
Rhoda: No good, Mare. I always get a guy with a great sense of humor. What I'm looking for is a guy with a great sense of serious.
Mary: (to Rhoda, after looking for some scotch for Wes) Do you believe that Phyllis? She wouldn't lend me a whole bottle of scotch. She had to pour it into a mayonnaise jar!
