This show would regularly steal storylines directly from previously aired episodes from the Ellen
(1994) sitcom. Oftentimes, Cybill even copied everything almost scene-by-scene, such as the episode where Ellen comes home with her friend to a robbery in progress in her apartment, (so does Cybill with Maryanne in tow), takes a self-defense class, buys a male mannequin as crime prevention to sit on her couch etc. This would go on for almost the entire run of the series.
