- Creator Couple: John and Michelle Phillips, although they divorced prior to the group's final album.
- He Also Did: Denny Doherty later went on to host Theodore Tugboat.
- The Other Darrin: Michelle Phillips was fired from the band in June 1966 and was replaced by Jill Gibson. Both Gibson and Phillips sing on The Mamas & the Papas, which was being recorded that summer (it is unclear, however, who is singing on which songs; Michelle herself claims that the only two people who know are producer Lou Adler and engineer Bones Howe). Within a few months, the other members decided that, while they liked Gibson, she didn't have Michelle's stage presence or charisma. By August, Michelle was back and Gibson was given a lump sum payment for her time with the band.
- Throw It In!: The coda vocals for "I Saw Her Again" were punched in too early, causing Denny Doherty's vocals to have a false start. Producer Lou Adler liked the effect and left it in.
