This episode marks the first appearance in the regular series of one of the few long-running characters, Buddy Cole. His very first appearance was in the 2-hour "Pilot."
The "Sketch Comedy" sketch was taken out of a paid lesson Mark paid for back in 1982. It was supposed to make him a "better actor."

Dave: Well what if I was, huh?
Mark: Do you wanna step outside?

Kevin: Well it could help a guy organize his time.
Kevin: Scram Spain! Shake a leg, France.
Mark: (Bruce and Mark back away) I ought to sell your eyes to my angry sister.
Kevin: They are gone friend! But I claim this chest, FOR MOTHER RUSSIA! Good morning!
