Woody Boyd: Hey Sam. Sorry I'm late. I had to stop at the drugstore.
Sam Malone: That's OK, Woody.
Woody Boyd: Yup. Had to make another embarrassing trip to the drugstore to get a little uh...

Sam Malone: [under his breath]... protection?
Woody Boyd: Yeah. You know, Kelly and I want to have a family and all, but we figured we'd wait until after that raise you promised.
Sam Malone: I hope you got a lot of protection!
Woody Boyd: Well, as usual you know, I'm a little embarrassed and nervous when I go in there, so I buy a whole bunch of stuff so it doesn't look like I'm just going to get some... you know.
Sam Malone: Protection.
Woody Boyd: Yeah.
Woody Boyd: [starts emptying his shopping bag] So I got some paper plates, batteries, flash bulbs, Skoal, some gum, Chia Pet, eyeglass repair kit yeah, oh notebook paper, and VO5.

Ted Danson at the time was dating Whoopie Goldberg, who played a recurring role on Star Trek The Next Generation. Danson would also later marry Mary Steenburgon, whose ex husband Malcolm McDowell co starred in Star Trek Generations and was an uncle of Star Trek Deep Space Nine cast member Alexander Siddig. In addition, Norm inspired a nonspeaking background character named Morn on Star Trek Deep Space Nine.
