Trivia: The fictional childhood of Nick, growing up in a burlesque club surrounded by beautiful, nearly naked women who adored him, is bizarrely similar to the actual childhood of Alan Alda, who plays the boss character.

However, as an adult Alda became an activist for feminist causes, rather than the chauvinist effect it had on the fictional Nick.
