* ThrowItIn: Most of Bill Murray's dialogue was improvised.
* TroubledProduction: The film was often referred to this way while it was being made. There were script problems aplenty, even during shooting, until Creator/ElaineMay fixed them (and came up with Bill Murray's part). [[Creator/DustinHoffman Hoffman]] and director Creator/SydneyPollack feuded so intensely over small things that Hoffman ended up suggesting that Pollack play his agent so they could get that into the film (and, perhaps, give Pollack a chance to vent). It became one of the rare instances where the drama behind the drama resulted in a better film.

* PlayingAgainstType: Charles Durning to that point was exclusively a hard-nosed heavy. Here, he got to play an unambiguously sweet NiceGuy in a comedy. (His comedic chops led to his AcademyAward-nominated role in ''Film/ToBeOrNotToBe''.)

* Recycled soundtrack: The "Working Girl March" by Dave Grusin was recycled by Creator/MarkGoodson Production for three different pilots: 1983's ''Star Words'' and ''Series/BodyLanguage'', and 1986's ''On A Roll''. Only ''Body Language'' went to series and as a result, Edd Kalehoff composed a SuspiciouslySimilarSong (and in turn, the ticket plug that Kalehoff composed would be reused for '' Classic Series/{{Concentration}}'' starting in 1987).
