Fran references the song "Papa, Can You Hear Me?" from the movie Yentl.
Dr. Hamilton: Mrs. Sheffield, seeing that you had some usually strong Braxton Hicks contractions - it's very common for women over thirty-five under stress - have you been stressed about anything recently?
Fran: You mean besides the fact that you think I'm over thirty-five?
Yetta: (to C.C.) Thank you for inviting me to your wedding, Maggie.
C.C.: Yetta, I'm not... no, no...
Yetta: Did you hear about Miss Babcock, and the male maid?
C.C.: (alarmed)What are you talking about?!
Yetta: Franny and her husband walked in on them when they were doing the horizontal Hora.
C.C.: Where? Kitchen, stairway, closet, limo, Wal-mart?!
Yetta: Wal-mart, huh? Well, if they dig the danger of getting caught, they should try the aluminum sheds, at Home Depot.
Fran: Is Barbra's voice this flawless in person?
Maxwell: Well, actually it was a little tired, after singing 'Funny Girl' and 6 new songs from her next album
Fran: I'm so glad that I'm pregnant
Fran: (to herself) It's the only thing that's keeping me from killing myself
Daniel Davis does not appear in this episode. The explanation for Niles's absence is that he had a family reunion in London. In real life, Daniel had a family emergency that kept him from attending the shooting that week.
