The series is remembered for its concluding scene in the final episode. In that scene, the characters are in an airport when Peter, the lead, suddenly notes that their series is canceled. The camera immediately pulls back to reveal the stage and the studio audience and the cast takes a bow.

About halfway through the October 16th, 1987 broadcast of "I Married Dora", ABC News broke in with live coverage of the rescue of "Baby Jessica". She had captured the hearts and attention of the entire nation after having fallen into and becoming trapped in a deep hole in her home town of Midland, Texas. The balance of the episode was never seen by the home audience.

This television series was accompanied in the credits by a legal disclaimer stating the act of marrying an illegal alien to avoid deportation is illegal.
