A key plot point to the episode which is set in April 1958 is Joel Maisel ripping off Bob Newhart's famous "Abe Lincoln vs. Madison Avenue" routine, and Newhart is heard performing the routine on "The Ed Sullivan Show". However, Bob Newhart did not release his debut album - which includes that routine - until May 1960, and his first "Sullivan" appearance was in November 1960.
