Episode Notes
Guest-star Frances Conroy's character, Beverly Rose, was named after the production supervisor of the series.

Guest star director Wes Craven and "My Bodyguard" guest star Jamie Kennedy are both well known for being part of the "Scream" movie trilogy.

This episode was actually scheduled to air many times between the time the show went on hiatus and when it finally aired. The last time it was scheduled was a week before it did air (during NBC's "guest star" week), and NBC even ran promos but dropped it at the last minute. Due to abysmal ratings of this unannounced episode when it finally aired, the rest of the unaired episodes were shelved.

Episode Quotes
Ian: [Pigeons are] rats with wings. Aside from pooping on limousines, they do nothing I like!

Ian: Hey, you're back! How was your sister's?
Maddie: Oh, it was great! Her kids are so adorable! I learned everything there is to know about Pokémon, and then on the bus ride home, I locked myself in the bathroom and tied my own tubes.
