  • The opening titles from Perfect Match are changed to remove Harry and add Chloe and Joseph. The end titlecard of the new version of these opening titles had previously been glimpsed on screen in Floss The Foundling.
  • The episode's title may have been taken from the song "Getting to Know You" from the musical "The King and I".
    • The title is also a reference to Tyler 'getting to know' his mum again and vice versa.
  • Isobel Steele guest starred in the episode as Kara, Mo's crush and short time girlfriend. She is most known for playing Aaron Dingle's younger half-sister Liv Flaherty in ITV's soap opera Emmerdale .
