- SPOILER: The kiss between Eric and Sean in the episode "Acting Out" (episode #2.14), is the second man/man kiss shown on US Network television. It was based on an actual kiss between a gay couple on the Today Show on June 28, 1999. Al Roker witnessed both kisses.

- This show was in reference to something ABC did on a short-lived drama in 1991.

- This is the first episode that features outdoor scenes filmed on the streets of New York City.
