Season 2's opening introductory cast shots of Thorpe and Reese come from this episode.
Prior to seeing Mr. Leonard, the team seemed to harmonize pretty well in the shower in previous episodes. How did they suddenly lose that ability in Mr. Leonard's classroom?
Harry Danner, who played Mr. Leonard, the music teacher, is the brother-in-law of the late Bruce Paltrow, series executive producer.
Choir parts for the team (as determined by Mr. Leonard):
Second Tenors-Hayward, Goldstein, Salami
Falsetto (probably a tenor)-Reese
Apparently tone deaf-Gomez
Since the team dinner is at an Italian restaurant, and Salami is Italian, you would think he'd help his teammates order something other than all of them getting 'meatballs and spaghetti.'
The team sings three oldie hits in this episode, a series high for one episode. The songs are "Take You Back" by Frank Stallone, "I Do" by the Marvelettes, and "Charlie Brown" by the Coasters.
