Did You Know?

Trivia

Tony Shalhoub's father and mother's names are Joe and Helen, matching the two lead characters in "Wings". Additionally, his father's brother's name is Brian, the same as the show's character Joe. Coming from a NY theatre background and unfamiliar with the then year old program, Shalhoub was unaware of this until he saw his audition script. See more »

Goofs

Sandpiper only has one airplane, and Joe always reads its call number as "Nevada-One-Two-One-Papa-Papa" or N121PP. However, there are a few episodes where the Sandpiper plane's tail shows N121PB and several more (mostly exterior shots) where it shows N160PB. See more »

Quotes

Casey Chappel Davenport: We're not having a big sandwich!
Brian Hackett: [slightly annoyed] This is Nanucket, its not San Francisco. We are a simple people. We fish our waters, we till our lands, we eat a big sandwich.

User Reviews

Not much better than this.
24 December 1999 | by NHNeilSee all my reviews

I believe this show got better as the years went by, except for the Farah Forke years (thought she was terrible & made the brothers look like fools). Even as I watch the re-runs on USA I believe this to be one of the best sit-coms ever made. I'm not sure any of these characters could have done a spin off and been successful but as a group I don't think you could get much better than this. I'd rather watch these re-runs than most of the new crap that's out there today.
