The running gag of having the pre-credit sequence ending with a character referring to Ann as "that girl" was originally only supposed to be used in the pilot as it was believed that they would never be able to keep finding ways to work it into the conversation. It ended up being used in almost all the episodes. See more »
Ann Marie moves to New York City from Brewster, NY, which is on the Metro North Railroad's Harlem Line to Grand Central Terminal. The footage behind the credits was shot on New Jersey Transit's Northeast Corridor Line (photographed from the rear of a train leaving New York and then shown backwards so the train appears to be going to New York, although on the wrong track).

In the opening of the episode "A Tenor's Loving Care", Giuseppe Casanetti says this episode's "That girl" in Itallian. During the freeze frame of Ann, the words "Quella Ragazza" appear in the title font, followed by "(That Girl)" printed in block letters below. See more »
That Girl was designed around Miss Thomas and her personality /charm/ looks and timing made the show . Throw in Mr. Bessell,Lou Parker Bernie Kopell and a cast of many future stars and you have a show which holds up 40+ years later> Funny/poignant/warm/sensitive and in last season became relevant with current topics> Nobody doesn't like something about this show and most love it. If you had to pick a short list of shows from that era this would be on it. It was genuine and didn't pretend to be anything it wasn't. Every week had a fresh different episode,although to be expected some were better and some were in 2 parts]..Miss Thomas simply lit up the screen and captivated the hearts of young girls and the eyes of most guys ... They and myself simply couldn't get enough of her.
