This episode is based on a true story that happened to show creator Phil Rosenthal. In the start of Season 3, he gave the cast, crew, and his parents toasters that had Everybody Loves Raymond engraved on it. The conversation Phil had with his father about the toaster's whereabouts was the word-for-word conversation Ray has with Frank in this episode, and Phil's parents did trade in the toaster for a coffee maker, like Frank and Marie did.
