In this episode there are five actor/actresses from M*A*S*H. Two are from the movie, (Elliott Gould and Sally Kellerman); and three from the TV series, (Loretta Swit, Jamie Farr ,and William Christopher), which means that both actresses who played "Hotlips" Houlihan are in this same show.

Also, in keeping with the M*A*S*H theme is the appearance of Christopher Norris who played nurse Gloria "Ripples" Brancusi on Trapper John, M.D. (1979).

This was Kim Little's first appearance as Nurse Susan Hilliard, who would become Jesse's girlfriend as the season went on.
