Trivia

This episode was inspired by writers Carl Kleinschmitt and Dale McRaven's own experiences writing for The Joey Bishop Show (1961). Joey Bishop could be very hard on the writers at times and they often added their insulting comments about Joey in the margins of their scripts. They would white them out before Bishop saw them.
