- Deleted Scene: A sequence excised for time had Apu showing the Simpsons an stereotypical Bollywood movie. This would be shown for the first time on the "Spectacular 138th" episode.
- Release Date Change: The episode was originally going to air on January 27, 1994, but the effects of the Northridge Earthquake caused production to be delayed and it was moved to February 10 (a repeat of "Dead Putting Society" aired instead).
- What Could Have Been: James Woods' role was originally meant for Michael Caine, who turned it down. The original joke was that Caine would do anything, even work at the Kwik-E Mart.
