Added DiffLines:

* CreatorBacklash: Garrett Morris is very angry about how he was written out of the show. He'd been shot in a mugging gone wrong and suffered life-threatening injuries that kept him in a hospital for a long time. Martin Lawrence and the producers had his character suddenly leave without any notice, which infuriated Morris, who wanted to keep on working and somehow incorporate his condition into the show. What made Morris especially angry was that Martin Lawrence was going on TV to talk about being scared and worried for his co-star but never called or visited Morris in the hospital.

* ThoseTwoActors: Gina (Tisha Campbell-Martin) and Pam (Tichina Arnold) were two of the background singers for ''Film/LittleShopOfHorrors''. Then they reunited in the fourth season of ''Series/EverybodyHatesChris'' as neighbors.
* RomanceOnTheSet: Averted. Lawrence ''wanted'' this with his costar, but Campbell felt quite differently, leading to the tensions mentioned above. It has also been said that there was tension due to her new husband at the time, Duane Martin, being jealous of Lawrence and Campbell on the set and not liking him (he also wanted to be on the show but Lawrence said no). None of the other cast members supported her allegations, though. It does seem like something was going on between them at some point, though.

* ActorAllusion: In the first two seasons, Martin always kept a framed poster of ''DoTheRightThing'' in his living room. It was one of Lawrence's first film roles and he played Cee.
** When Christopher "Kid" Reid of Kid n Play and ''Film/HouseParty'' fame guest starred, Sheneneh begs him to kiss her "like the way he did with that light-skinned girl in ''House Party''," referring to Campbell of course.

** Marla Gibbs once guest starred as an inept new housekeeper. Her sassy attitude was similar to her character on ''Series/TheJeffersons'', and when she first appeared at Martin and Gina's door, the couple said "You got the wrong apartment, you probably want 227" (another sitcom she starred in) and "You'll have to [[ThemeTuneCameo move on up]]" (or something along those lines).
