Trivia
The original ending for the series, as proposed by the writers, was for Angela and Tony to get married. ABC executives, however, balked at this ending and were supported by Tony Danza, who was against having Tony and Angela get married in the series finale. So the series ended with Tony and Angela breaking up but with Tony appearing on Angela's doorstep to apply for the housekeeper job in a scene that is almost identical to the opening scene in the pilot episode.

German network RTL showed a German version of the show called Ein Job für's Leben (1993) ("A Life-Time Job"). The scripts and every single joke of the original's 1984-1985 season were translated, but it was canceled after one season. "Ein Job für's Leben" was preceded by a British version, The Upper Hand (1990), starring Honor Blackman, which fared somewhat better despite also being a direct translation instead of an adaptation or reinvention. It was canceled in 1996.
