  • Rhea Perlman is supposed to have been listening to an LA radio show hosted by Jay Thomas, who played the Eddie LeBec character. Thomas, who had kept his alternate job as a DJ, made several unflattering remarks about Perlman and having to kiss her during an on-air call. This episode, killing off the Eddie LeBec character, was Perlman's revenge.
