Trivia

Isaac Jaffe (played by Robert Guillaume) gives Dana tickets to the Broadway version of "The Lion King". She comes back and tells him about the character in the play who summoned all of the animals. In The Lion King (1994), Robert Guillaume voiced the very same character (Rafiki). See more »

Goofs

This episode revolves around a live feed from a Mt. Everest Summit expedition. The primary climbing season for Everest is in the spring, with most climbers reaching the summit in May. This episode takes place while the NFL season is still on, when it is extremely cold in NYC, probably December (since Thanksgiving was discussed in the previous episode.). Climbers would never try to summit Everest in December. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Dan Rydell: [on the air] The Olympic gold-medal-winning gymnast and high school sophomore said that after all those years of hard work, it was a relief to finally realize her life-long dream. Good to get that out of the way at fifteen.
