    • For this episode, Whoopi Goldberg was nominated for the 1999 Image Award for "Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series".

    • You can tell Rachel Chagall is pregnant in the scene where Fran, Sylvia, Yetta and Val are in the living room in the beginning of this episode.

    • Both Whoopi Goldberg and Coolio have previously guest starred on the show playing characters.
