Everybody Loves Raymond

Halloween Candy - S3-E6

Trivia: Frank dresses up as Frankenstein in this episode for an in-joke alluding to the role he played in 1974's Young Frankenstein.


How They Met - S3-E26

Trivia: The flashback of this episode has several similarities to Ray Romano's real life. He was a futon delivery man before he was a comedian, he worked with his friend Claude, and he once walked into a customer's house to find her naked, mistaking her saying, "coming." for "Come in."


The Lone Barone - S3-E9

Trivia: Kevin James returns to the show that helped to give him his own show The King of Queens. Earlier in the evening, as part of CBS's "Shameless Crossover Monday" promotion, Ray, Robert and Frank appear in The King of Queens episode "Road Rayge".


The Letter - S2-E11

Trivia: Maggie Wheeler (the actress who plays Linda Gruenfelder) auditioned to play Debra Barone. Jane Sibbett, who plays Ross' ex-wife on Friends, was the front-runner for the part, but Phil Rosenthal said he'd quit unless they hired Patricia Heaton.


The Angry Family - S6-E1

Trivia: During the opening scene in the classroom while the children are reading their stories if you look to the left of Ray on the screen you can see his real life wife Anna Romano standing next to him acting as a parent for another child in the class.


A Vote for Debra - S6-E20

Trivia: Bill Parker, who's running against Debra in this episode, is actually Patricia Heaton's real life husband.


The Game - S1-E17

Trivia: Joe Manfrellotti, the actor who plays Gianni, played a cable guy in this episode and was later brought back in the beginning of the Second Season in the role of Gianni.


Pilot - S1-E1

Trivia: The twins are named Matthew and Gregory for the pilot, but are then renamed Geoffrey and Michael from the second episode on. The name change was made when it was felt that life imitated art in the pilot, in which the twins were named Matthew and Gregory (the names of Ray Romano's real-life twins).


The Toaster - S3-E12

Trivia: 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.


Hackidu - S4-E17

Trivia: When Russell (Paul Reubens) gives Raymond grief about his sister Amy and Robert breaking up, he tells Raymond that "Your brother needs help. If he could just learn to love himself...he needs to learn to love himself." This is an inside joke hinting at Paul Reubens' 1991 arrest for masturbating in a porno theater.


The Checkbook - S2-E16

Trivia: The cop at the bank in this episode is Ray Romano's brother, who in real life is a NYC cop.


How They Met - S3-E26

Trivia: Frank doesn't appear in this episode, as Peter Boyle had a heart attack on set during preparations for filming and he had to be written out of the episode.


The Wedding (2) - S2-E25

Trivia: The man who is with Uncle Mel at the church is Ray Romano's father.


Trivia: Madylin Sweeten who plays Ally is in real-life older sister to Sawyer and Sullivan Sweeten who play Michael and Geoffrey.

The Toaster - S3-E12

Trivia: During the filming of this episode, Patricia Heaton was pregnant. It is easily visible, as throughout the episode she hides her stomach behind bowls or blankets, and most close-up shots of her only show her face.


Why Are We Here? - S1-E22

Trivia: During the filming of this episode, Patricia Heaton was actually pregnant. It is visible in the beginning of the episode before the flashback.

The Toaster - S3-E12

Trivia: The security cop at the store at the end of the episode is Ray Romano's real-life brother, who in real life was a member of the NYPD.


Recovering Pessimist - S1-E18

Trivia: Ray is nominated for a Sportswriter of the Year award against, among others, Chuck Heaton from Cleveland. Chuck Heaton is a retired sportswriter from Cleveland and also Patricia Heaton's father.

Season 3 generally

Trivia: Ray Romano's stunt double also worked previously on Terminator 2. Although he wasn't injured at all during the filming of Terminator 2, he broke his nose during the filming of the opening sequence for this season.

Why Are We Here? - S1-E22

Trivia: Two year old Ally, during the flashback, is actually Sawyer and Sullivan Sweeten wearing a wig.

Father Knows Best - S2-E2

Continuity mistake: Prior to bringing Ray up for the role-playing exercise, the parenting teacher erases a circled phrase from the chalkboard. Throughout the scene, the chalked circle flips several several times between being totally erased and having a faint outline left over.
