    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (2)

      • Felix gives the address of his studio as "380 Madison Avenue. Portraits a specialty."

      • Although Felix's studio interior appears the same as in previous episodes, the storefront is different. Beneath the main sign advertising "Felix Unger, Photographer," a second sign has initials that have come to be considered usually offensive since the show: "F.U. Enterprises." Originally Felix's initials, today, they mean an expletive.

        David Steinberg: I'm entirely different.

      • Felix: Can't tell you what a thrill it is to have you in my studio. David Steinberg, my favorite talk show host.
