Trivia

The basis for this exact storyline would later be reused for Kung Fu: The Legend Continues: Sunday at the Hotel with George (1993), and a similar one (albeit, not a wedding) for Adderly: Year of the Tiger (1987). Incidentally, Robert Lansing would star in both series, (but not in this episode). See more »
