Goof: Wings, #135, Sons & Lovers, continuity: Near the start of the episode when Roy and RJ are meeting again after six or so years, Helen & Joe talking, Helen says "There's a simple explanation...", note during "There's a" Joe's hand is on his forehead, but at the point she says "simple" his hand has warped over to cover his mouth.
Roy: "My son is gay, and that's his boyfriend, he's gay too."
Behind the Scenes: The original idea for this episode was a gay wedding for R.J., but the producers scrapped the idea when they heard that another NBC sitcom, "Friends" was doing an episode with that theme (wisely realizing that "Friends" show would grab all the headlines). Two days after this episode aired, "Friends" premiered "The One With the Lesbian Wedding".
Brian Haley does not appear in this episode.
The title alludes to the 1913 D. H. Lawrence novel with the same name.
