First camera shot: Bud and Kelly are watching a commercial with a grilling cowboy.

General note: Katey Sagal was on maternity leave and only appears by "phone"; the end credits contain the following message: "In Loving Memory of James Maura"; the end credits are over a picture of the brick wall Al's hiding behind.

Kellyisms: "That is the squaw that stroke the camel's sack" instead of "That is the straw that broke the camel's back."

Influences: The episode title is inspired by the song "Stairway to Heaven" by Led Zeppelin.
