Guest Stars/Recurring castEdit


  • The episode title is a reference to the 1963 song, "She Loves You", by The Beatles, which contains the lyrics, "She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah."
  • This is the second of only two episodes that lists the writer/director credits at the beginning of the episode instead of at the end. The first one was the "Pilot".
  • There were no closing credits during the original airing.
  • This originally aired as a live call-in episode where the TV viewers phoned in during the show for their opinion if Al should say "I love you" to Peggy. By the end, 67% of the viewers said Al should say it. The segment has been cut from all syndicated and DVD versions. In the original airing, after Peg calls out to Al in the bathroom, the screen freezes, then she turns to the camera and says:
    • Thank you so much for understanding. You must know what it's ike to smell his socks, to walk barefoot on his toenail clippings, and to kill what's living in his toothbrush. I deserve to hear "I love you" and dammit I'm going to. And for those of you who voted no, and think I should have a miserable life - Don't worry. I do. [calling sweetly] Oh, Al.
  • According to, another line of dialouge was filmed in case the majority voted no:
    • So you don't think I deserve to hear "I love you". Have you ever smelled his socks? Have you ever walked barefoot over his toenail clippings? Have you ever seen what lives in his toothbrush? I didn't think so. Feel pretty low now, don't you? You don't want to see him say it? Then turn off the set, 'cause he's gonna say it. [calling sweetly] Oh, Al!
  • This episode marks the first wedding anniversary for Steve and Marcy.
  • The song that Marcy sings as she's being rolled into the Chicago Bulls locker room is "My Funny Valentine"


  • When Peg call out to Al while he's in the bathroom and asks if he's finally going to say "I love you", she is leaning back with her right arm on the bed support her. When Al opens the door a couple of seconds later, she is suddenly sitting straight up with both of her hands on her knee.
