    The Solomons freaked out over Jell-O, believing it to be a hostile lifeform.
    Season Three ended with a cliffhanger in which a character played by Phil Hartman kidnaps Harry. Hartman was killed eight days after the episode aired, forcing a rewrite of the Season Four opener.
    When the Solomons return to their home planet in the final episode, Dick erases Mary's memories of him.

    Lithgow said about the show's humor, 'We are entitled to go absolutely anywhere and do anything... We can be dirtier, we can be more outrageous, we can be more politically incorrect, we can be incorrect in every conceivable way, and ... we didn't know, don't blame us, we didn't know, we're aliens! It's just a gigantic sanction, it's a permit that we have that no-one else has.'
    When the Big Giant Head mentions that he saw something on the wing of his plane, Dick replies, 'The same thing happened to me!' in reference to Shatner appearing the in the Twilight Zone episode 'Nightmare at 20,000 Feet' and Lithgow taking the same role in 'Twilight Zone: The Movie.'
