During a 2012 interview on the National Public Radio program "Fresh Air with Terry Gross," Matthew Weiner told Gross that when Glen goes into the bathroom and interrupts Betty, it was definitely not an accident. Weiner said, "He went in there to see her. He went in there to see her and that's why he stood there and she had to chase him out." Weiner also told Gross that while discussing the scene beforehand with the actor who plays Glen (Marten Weiner, who is also Matthew Weiner's son), Matthew told Marten that deliberately walking into a bathroom to look at an adult woman on whom he had a crush was something he had actually done as a child, and Marten said, "Daddy, you're weird."

Pete and Trudy's new apartment is at Park Ave. and 82nd. At the end, Pete looks out the apartment window on a view of Central Park that is impossible from that location. He's looking from the top of the Park, directly south, as though he's on 110th (or higher) between 5th Ave. and 8th Ave. (which encompass the width of the Park). With this impossible view, Pete takes in a nighttime skyline that includes the Chrysler Building and the Empire State Building; this is the New York equivalent of "all windows in Paris look out on the Eiffel Tower."
