Trivia

When Midge's mother Rose goes to the Rodin Museum in Paris with her art class, on a sidewalk across the way is a small line of little girls with a nun at the front and rear of the line. This is no doubt a reference to Ludwig Bemelmans' famous children's book, Madeline, which told of "...twelve little girls in two straight lines..." as they moved through Paris. [The piano bar at the Carlyle Hotel on East 76th Street in New York is named after Bemelman and its walls are covered with murals from his drawing including some from Madeline.] See more »

Goofs

When Susie got the phone call in the previous episode to make the breakthrough booking that is the focus of this episode, the plan was clearly for February. Yet in this episode Abe and Rose have been in Paris for so long that the springtime blossoms are coming out in the parks. It is not specified what month the action occurs in, but somehow Abe suddenly has to return to New York because classes at Columbia are about to start - which would normally be either January or September. That is, if he had managed to arrange a spontaneous springtime sabbatical, then they could have stayed in Paris all through the summer, which they did not, but nor did he hurry home for the winter semester. Basically, several months were inserted on the Paris side that did not occur on the New York side. See more »

I gushed over this episode
7 December 2018 | by igotdatfoshoSee all my reviews

I've never watched an episode that has made me more happy than this one. The writing is so on the money and you can see how much quicker and improved it is so far than in season one, which is no easy task. The Abe/Rose storyline is so sweet and romantic, there's a scene in particular I can watch forever. Perfect episode
