In real life, Phillips was given a six-week vacation to go to rehab. In fall 1981, Phillips returned as a guest in a two part episode when Julie and Max have marital troubles.

Meredith Baxter Birney has said in interviews how hurt and betrayed she and her mom felt when the show, which was supposed to be their star vehicle, was bought by Norman Lear and cast with other actors.
