* In the middle of the film, Dolly and her colleagues send a nosy secretary to the Aspen Language Center in Colorado, to learn French. The particular TWA 747 shown in the film later was used in reality on the ill-fated flight of TWA 800, which exploded off of Long Island, NY
* Violet's fantasy refers to Disney characters from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (including Violet herself as Snow White), Bambi and Robin Hood.
Plans for a sequel were considered throughout the 1980s, but no storyline was ever settled upon.
