According to director Allison Anders (during her commentary for the DVD), this was the first time that a movie showed a woman's "water breaking" in the recording studio scene. However, such an event had already been depicted as early as Cinderella Liberty (1973). It was also the first depiction of a woman's sweater getting wet because it was time to breastfeed her baby. Anders also asked for "child care" to be listed in the end credits.
