Trivia

The first-draft script of this show was to be set in 2017, with futuristic costumes and gadgetry and old Dr. Auschlander still going via bionic implants all over his body. NBC balked at the cost of filming that show, and this script was made up just before the writers' strike of 1988. It was filmed after the writers went on the picket lines in mid-March, with the last scene completed being a big kiss between Dr. Ehrlich and Nurse Papandreou. Had this episode been made, it would have accurately predicted that Norman Lloyd, who played Dr. Auschlander, would still be alive in 2017. He turned 103 on November 8, 2017. See more »
