Tracy Danza is Tony's wife. Carol Kane reprises her role from Taxi, the sitcom that made both her and Danza stars. Word was that Danza wanted a reunion with all of his surviving Taxi co-stars, but Judd Hirsch was busy with his own sitcom, George & Leo, and Jeff Conaway and Marilu Henner had already signed on to appear in a November sweeps episode of it. No matter. Because of the horrible ratings generated by the second and third episodes, The Tony Danza Show never aired during November sweeps, and this episode was pulled from its original November 5, 1997 airdate. It was instead used to relaunch the series when it returned from hiatus in a, as NBC called it, more protected time period. The Halloween show that was supposed to air before it, The Price of Dirty Laundry, was skipped and never aired at all.
