Trivia

(at around 36 mins) When Roger is going through his business contacts and on the phone with "Louise", he says that he was calling to talk to her husband "Larry". This is an obvious reference to the characters Larry Tate and Louise Tate from "Bewitched" where Larry Tate was also an advertising account agency manager. See more »
