Trivia

In the DVD commentary, the producers reveal that two identical sets of Karen's bathroom were made for this episode. Because this was a live episode, two sets were needed for Rosario's quick clean up after the fight with powder, lotion, etc. If you watch the cast introductions following the episode, you can see both sets in the background.

Excellent episode and fantastic performances
11 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The first live show (#8.01 Alive and Schticking) was a little rocky. 3/4 of the cast not being able to keep a straight face was probably funny for the live studio audience and the audiences at home but is distracting for people watching the episode now. This episode, however, was wonderful. Solid and very funny plot as well as perfect professional behavior from the actors. I will say though, once again, Megan Mullally as Karen really shone. She seemed the most comfortable with the live airing while the others seemed like they were holding back just a little bit at some times. The bit where all of Karen's pill bottles pour out is one of the funniest things I've ever seen on a sitcom maybe only behind Cheers' #6.23 Bar Wars when fifty sheep are in Rebecca's office and/or I Love Lucy's #1.05 The Quiz Show when Lucy introduces Ricky to her "second first husband."
