Trivia

This is the first episode to be filmed after the death of Nicholas Colasanto (Coach). He 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, behind Ted Danson after Lila spins him around at the bar and the camera angle changes so that the far wall where the piano stands can be seen. Though it moves around a bit depending on the episode, that photograph stayed on the wall permanently.
Shelley Long and Rhea Perlman were both pregnant during this season. While Perlman's pregnancy was incorporated into the show as her character becoming pregnant, Long's was hidden, as she wore bulky clothing and hid behind the bar counter for many episodes. This episode begins the story arc of Diane and Frasier traveling to Italy. These scenes, clearly depicting Long with the slender physique she'd had in past seasons, were filmed much earlier in production of season 3 than the other scenes in the final episodes of the season, before Long's pregnancy became noticeable.

Lila Kaye played Lillian Huxley, a British barmaid with a heart of gold and a checkered past. She played a similar role in An American Werewolf in London (1981). (She plays a barmaid for The Slaughtered Lamb, an English pub).
