Trivia

The Mother's Day episode of "TGS" ends with the mothers each singing a piece of a cheerful song. At least two of the mothers are played by actresses who are primarily famous for their roles in Broadway musicals - Elaine Stritch, who plays Colleen (Jack's mom) and Patti LuPone, who plays Sylvia Rossitano (Frank's mom). LuPone deliberately sang her character's line off-key, even though she has won two Tony awards for musical theater performances (and been nominated for another three). See more »

Before Avery walks away from her conversation with Colleen, her top is buttoned all the way. As she walks away, you can see the top button is now unbuttoned. See more »
