Richard Mulligan makes his second of three appearances as Dr. Harry Weston, while Park Overall makes her only appearance in this series as Laverne Todd, both from the spin-off Empty Nest. Coincidentally, this is also the only episode to take place inside Dr. Weston's office.
This is the final episode of the series to be written by Susan Harris.
Dorothy: Harry am I going to die?
Dr. Harry Weston: I'm afraid so.
Dorothy: Do you really think so?
Dr. Harry Weston: Sooner or later I guarantee it, unless the Japanese come up with something.
Dr. Harry Weston: Doctors! Look at how they write! I can't read this and I just wrote it.
Sophia: Fine give them egg yolks, they won't need a home anymore, they'll die of heart attacks. You're hearts in the right place but I don't know where the hell your brain is.
Blanche: What day is this? I have been up for 72 hours. I have done the impossible. I have created a new form of writing!
(Picks up bag of egg yolks)
Blanche: My God I am hallucinating! I see little balls of sunshine in a bag!
(To Dorothy regarding Rose)
Blanche: I am so tired I can't even understand people anymore. Dorothy, what did she just say? Was that a poem?
Blanche: Rose I can trust you, you're from Minnisota. Always very honest and kind. Of course what can you possibly find to lie about on a farm. Lots of lakes and lots of pale people... I'd drown myself.
Blanche: Doesn't make sense? Who made you a literary critic Rose Nylund? What could you have possibly read on a farm, Silus Marner? Huck Finn? You know nothing!
(To Dr. Chang)
Sophia: The man's a genius. By the way I love flower drum song!
Dr. Chang: Well if there are no more questions...
Sophia: I have a question!
Dr. Chang: Of course, Mrs. Petrillo
Sophia: When I order at Fung Chao's and say no MSG, do they really put it in anyway?
Sophia: The man's a genius, all of you people are. They invented pasta you know. We take credit for it but we just added oregano.
Waiter: Well what are we celebrating?
Sophia: We found out my daughter has a debilitating disease.
Blanche: This is best champaign I have ever tasted.
Rose: It should be, it was $430 a bottle.
Dorothy: Rose, I can't afford that!
Blanche: Well you did say the best.
