3. "The Nose Job" almost didn’t happen because of a bad fake nose
Remember that gigantic, amazing nose in "The Nose Job" episode? It almost didn’t happen, according to makeup artist Robin Dee LaVigne. “The initial nose came back from the prosthetics-maker far too small. I put the nose on [actress Susan Diol], and everybody came running to me, saying, ‘It’s not big enough, what are we going to do?’ They wanted to throw it out, and I said, no, leave it on, let’s see what I can do.” She ended up building it up with mortician’s wax until it was the enormous, cartoonishly large nose that made the episode hilarious.
4. Like Internet commenters, fans let the show know when it messed up NYC even a little
“One of the most memorable mishaps was a liquor store,” Mel Cooper, who worked as the show’s set decorator, told us. “I forgot that New York has package stores for hard liquor -- the show was shot in Los Angeles. So I dressed the shop like a California store -- with liquor, wine, and beer all available in rows next to each other. And then the letters came pouring in correcting me.”
5. They once had to order a crap-load of kelp to the set
See: what happens when you film an East Coast show in Los Angeles. Turns out Atlantic kelp (yeah, kelp, like the seaweed powder your vegan roommate insists on keeping on top of the fridge) doesn’t look like Pacific kelp, so when they filmed “The Marine Biologist,” (the episode with the beached whale) the art department had to order 55 gallon buckets of the stuff from a Northeast aquarium to prevent another East Coast/West Coast mishap.
6. The cast had a catchphrase
"All right then, sir!" said in a British accent was a popular joke among the crew.
