Nicholas Colasanto (Coach) had kept a picture of Geronimo in his dressing room as a good luck charm, and after his death, that picture was hung on the bar/set wall in memory of "Nicky." This is the first episode in which the picture can be seen, over Ted Danson's left shoulder as he follows Carla around the corner of the bar. See more »
