* ShoutOut: The shot where the camera swoops in to find Baxter at one in a sea of desks is a {{homage}} to King Vidor's 1928 silent classic, ''Film/TheCrowd''.

* TakeThat[=/=]NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: TheDitz that Dobisch takes to the apartment is a thinly veiled lampoon of MarilynMonroe. Billy Wilder had earlier directed Monroe in ''Film/TheSevenYearItch'' and ''Film/SomeLikeItHot'', and didn't think much of her professionalism. [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] when Dobisch even mentions that the girl looks like Marilyn Monroe.

*** The script has "I'm going to send him a fruitcake every Christmas", so the credit for strengthening MaybeEverAfter feeling probably goes to Miss MacLaine.

* CrappyHolidays: Christmas and New Year's are both miserable affairs for Baxter and Miss Kubelik. At least until the very end of the film.
