Behind the scenes

  • The plot is a parody of the 1985 film Jagged Edge.
  • Harvey begins an affair with Boo Boo, revealing that they are both gay, which is somewhat hypocritical given Harvey's ever so slightly irked reaction to the possibility of Race and Dr. Quest being in a relationship in "Bannon Custody Battle".
  • Judge Mightor refers to the foreman as Mr. Foreplay.
  • Buster Brown, a comic strip character, is mentioned.
