Trivia

The episode has a dream sequence where the Blue Moon detective agency becomes the Hart Detective Agency, with an employee named Max, played by Lionel Stander. Both are in-joke references to Hart to Hart (1979). See more »

Goofs

When Maddie asks Max about what happened to the Blue Moon Detective Agency, Max tells her that they came in and fired everyone 2.5 years earlier. However, in the pilot episode, when Maddie comes in to shut the place down, it's called City of Angels Investigations. It only becomes Blue Moon Detective Agency when she decides to keep it running with David Addison. So Max should have had no idea what she was talking about. See more »

Quotes

Agnes DiPesto: Blue Moon Detective Agency.
[answering the phone]
Agnes DiPesto: If your stocking gets stolen and your tree can't be found, / You may as well call us 'cause we'll be around. / We have to work christmas, so if you're in a pinch, / Just give Blue Moon a jingle and ask for the Grinch.
