- The song Susan is singing to Little Susie at the end of the episode, "Blackbird" by the Beatles, is the same one she, Chloe, and Chuni sang when the baby was delivered in the Season 1 episode "Motherhood ."
- Music: "O Happy Day," Harlem Gospel Singers; "Blackbird," The Beatles (sung by Susan )
- The date on Susan's mother's video camera is Thursday, October 19, the day this episode aired.
- This is the first appearance of nurse trainee E. Ray Bozeman, portrayed by Charles Noland.
- The title of this episode, "And Baby Makes Two," is a take on the popular phrase "and baby makes three," commonly expressed when a happy couple welcomes their little bundle of joy to the world. In this episode, however, there is only Susan to take care of the baby, hence the "makes two" rather than "makes three."
