Mary Tyler Moore's appearance in this episode is a spoof of the long-running character she played on the competing private eye series "Richard Diamond." On that series, she was heard but only her legs and close-ups of her mouth were seen as she played Diamond's phone answering service. If you listen closely, she begins her phone chat with Roger Smith by calling him "Richard."
