In this episode, Dan's mother (Audrey) is played by Debbie Reynolds but was previously played by Ann Wedgeworth in an earlier Thanksgiving episode in 1989. A far more glaring plot hole is that it is mentioned in this episode that Dan was responsible for committing his mother to a mental hospital 20 years earlier which defies the character's complete normalcy and her Thanksgiving appearance less than 10 years earlier.
