  • This is the seventieth produced episode of the series, but is the sixty-sixth episode to be shown on television and is the fourth episode shown for the Third Season.
  • Schultz is unusually womanizing here, while he's generally quite supportive of his family, arguing that he has a wife and 5 kids to support, and that they eat a lot!
  • Though not seen, when Schultz enters barracks two singing about dancing with his date, Newkirk mentions Corporal Langenscheidt when guessing who he was dancing with jokingly.
  • Schultz admits to having a troubled relationship with his mother, admitting that she hit him as a child just because he was there.
