  • Actor Allusion:
    • "...and this is Caroline".
    • Max getting tasered in the pilot. Guess turnabout is fair play.
    • Caroline's attorney Leo was asked if he was on Law & Order, to which he said he wasn't. The actor actually was on L&O, playing Assistant Medical Examiner Borak.
    • Of course Max would know how to take a nude selfie since Kat Dennings seems to have a couple out there.
  • Alliterative Name: Caroline Channing played by Beth Behrs.
  • Dueling Shows: Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23 had a very similar premise. Its pilot episode also had a plot thread where one of the roommates discovered the other one's boyfriend was cheating and told the new roommate, who didn't believe her until she caught the boyfriend in the act.
    • 2BG won the duel as its rival was Screwed by the Network and canceled midway through its second season.
    • And then 2BG even picked up one of that show's supporting players.
  • Separated-at-Birth Casting: In season 6, Nora Dunn and Kerri Kenney-Silver play the mother and sister of Caroline's boyfriend Bobby, and they do look like they could be mother and daughter.
  • What Could Have Been: Audition footage exists (and has been circulated on YouTube) of one of the actresses who tried out for the role of Max: a pre-Doctor Who Jenna Coleman. Legendary singer Cher was in talks to play Max's mom as a guest star in Season 7 before the show's cancelation.
