Trivia: Pat Finley aka Patte Finley appears in the role of Twinks. She also appears in 1-4 in the role of Sparkie. It is strange to have the same actress playing two different roles in the same season.

Continuity mistake: This episode and scene has been referenced already but contains another error. In the scene where Lou is recalling the first time he met Mary, he claims Mary had asked for a job as an assistant producer when in fact he gave her the job because it paid less than the secretary job she wanted.
