Script | Credits | Filming Locations

The filming location for the scene with Pilar driving through the stop sign at the intersection is East Cypress Avenue / South Shamrock Avenue in Monrovia, CA.
The "Shamrock Avenue" street sign is even legible in the scene. As Pilar later mentions that the old Agretti warehouse is situated on Bly Street in Tuscany, East Cypress Avenue (where she stops and looks at the warehouse) is obviously Bly Street on the show.

The exterior shot of the Agretti warehouse on Bly Street is actually the Mill at CBS-MTM STUDIOS (now RADFORD STUDIO CENTER). For earlier and later uses of this building, compare # 083, 141, 154, 169 and 195.

Real-life allusion: When Nick, Ben and Gabriel are boxing, Gabriel mentions boxer MIKE TYSON.
Edited scene: The scene with Angela, Emma and Daniel in Angie's Del Oro suite was initially longer: It started with Angela and Daniel about one of his murder mysteries while Chao-Li pours a glass of 1974 Falcon Crest Cabernet Sauvignon — Daniel's favorite wine as Angela knows from one of his books. That initial part of the scene was removed in post-production.
Detailed information about the wine label on the prop bottle in this scene and many other labels is available in the Show – Production Office – Wine Label Gallery section. Previews are available for the general public; for DFCF members, the wine labels are available in high resolution.
Gomez Hardware, another Tuscany Valley store, is mentioned.
Season time frame:
This episode continues on the same night where # 191 left off, i.e. Monday, 01/02/1989. The celebration for the first issue of the Tuscany Herald on that day seems to be a celebration for the wrap-up of the preparations for this issue as the paper will be published only on Thursday, 01/05/1989.
Product placement: Maggie toasts to her first Tuscany Herald edition with Perrier mineral water. For the others, however, Richard has a bottle of Perrier-Jouët (Fleur de Champagne).
Mistake in the scene with Tommy and Paco in front of the burger joint: The yellow / white pickup in the background is facing the eatery as Tommy arrives. When Tommy and Paco walk towards the Chevrolet Camaro IROC-Z (Paco's red convertible), the yellow / white pickup is suddenly parked behind Paco. It would have to be behind Tommy — behind his right from his POV. The time between the various cuts was too short for the car to have been moved.
This is a mistake caused by the particular close-up filming technique — check # 001 (Chase and Maggie at the Gioberti Family Cemetery) for details.
The new Falcon Crest Victorian Mansion interior set is seen for the first time (after the fire):
The basic layout of the first floor and the shape of the rooms is still pretty much the same. For an in-depth analysis of the differences, see # 193.
Deleted scene: The director's cut of act 2 contained a scene with Lance and Nick in the Falcon Crest Winery Building. They are discussing a lab report on a soil analysis at Tuscany Hill and Nick's suggestion to plant a new vine variety, Pinot Grigio, there. While Lance opens his heart about his trouble with women (without mentioning Pilar's name), Nick says he met someone, but that it is too early to tell (not mentioning Pilar's name either). They also talk about parenthood. Nick says that it is awesome despite some differences with Ben from time to time. Lance, in contrast, says that the trouble with kids is to have to find their mother first, and that he is not exactly a winner in that area. This scene was filmed, but removed in post-production.

Edited scene: Harriet Anderson's dialog with R.D. Young is shorter in the scene in this episode ("I foresee a disaster.") than it was in the sneak preview ("I foresee a disaster, Daniel.").


Angela and Justin are waiting for Cookie and Lance at the Del Oro Spa Restaurant. Why are there only plates for two people on the table although Lance and Cookie were supposed to join Angela and Justin right away?

It is mentioned that Justin Nash is the mayor of Tuscany.
# 192 Uncredited extra SHARRI ZAK appears as the gray-haired Tuscany Valley socialite with the pony tail again; this episode at the Del Oro Spa Restaurant.
Compare # 202 for biographical details about this rôle and a list of appearances throughout the series.
For details about the extra, compare # 009.

The filming location for the bridal salon in San Francisco (scene with Emma and Maggie) is what used to be Susan Lane's Country Elegance, a real bridal salon in Toluca Lake, CA. The building houses a restaurant nowadays.

The painting on the label of the Cellini Primo Cabernet Sauvignon prop wine bottle is the same as the one used on the label of a Gioberti wine bottle in the series predecessor, "The Vintage Years", and on the label of a Zinfandel bottle in # 102 as well as on a rendering for Melissa's Joseph Wineries in # 170 (see there).
Detailed information about this wine label and many others is available in the Show – Production Office – Wine Label Gallery section. Previews are available for the general public; for DFCF members, the wine labels are available in high resolution.
Product placement:
Budweiser again: Raúl buys that beer at Wally's, a store in Tuscany.
Besides, a sign of Taittinger, the French Champagne company, is also featured in the store.
Credit card logos of MasterCard, Visa and American Express are on the doors of the store.
The filming location for Wally's is the former real wine retail store by the same name on Riverside Drive in Toluca Lake, CA (at the southern corner of Foreman Avenue). The building was slightly remodeled in the 1990's and now houses a marketing agency now. Wally's still exists, but moved to Westwood Boulevard in Los Angeles, CA.

License plate number of Garth's gray 1988 Dodge Dynasty: 2KJE748.

Mistake: In the exterior shot of the Ortega House, the roller blind (made of fabric) covers half of one of the dining room windows whereas, in the interior shot, it covers only about a quarter of it.
What also appears strange in the exterior shot is that there is no light shining through the second dining room window, which is hidden behind the tree.

Product placement: The jukebox at Señora Luna's restaurant is a Wurlitzer Nostalgia (model 1050); only a small number of this nostalgic model in memory of the 1950's was produced in 1973.

Señora Luna's restaurant where Pilar and Nick have dinner was the El Chiquito in Burbank. This Mexican restaurant used to be on West Olive Avenue, just across gate 2 of WARNER BROS. STUDIOS. When the studio lot was extended in 1995, the restaurant was demolished. A studio parking lot is in its place now, just next to WARNER's Franklin Parking Structure (gate 3 of the lot).
Richard is doing sit-ups in the ranch bedroom. He seems to be quite sporty this season; he is also seen playing tennis several times.

R.D. Young's (Daniel Cabot's) pickup truck is a yellow 1972 Dodge D100 Stepside.

Misspelled end credits:
The last name of the guest star playing Justin Nash, PETER MacLEAN, is misspelled with a space between "Mac" and "LEAN" although there is actually none since the name is written with a medial capital ("L") after the prefix. The same error will occur in # 193.
Also, the character name of guest star BETTY CARVALHO's rôle, Señora Luna, is misspelled: The diacritical mark (tilde) on the "n" in "Señora" is missing in the end credits.
