- The person who walks up and knocks on the door in the last scene is Bob Broder (IV), agent for the show's creators Glen Charles & Les Charles and James Burrows'.
- Ted Danson (Sam "Mayday" Malone), Rhea Perlman (Carla Tortelli) and George Wendt (Hillary Norman "Norm" Peterson) are the only actors to appear in all 273 episodes of the series.
- This final episode is the fourth highest rated series finale of all time, as of 2007.
- In one of the last scenes shows Sam straightening a photograph on the side of the bar. The picture is of Geronimo. This is an homage to the late Nicholas Colasanto, who played "Coach" Ernie Pantusso from 1982-1985. The picture held special meaning to Colasanto and hung in his dressing room. When he died in 1985, the picture was moved to the bar in his memory.
- The title is from a song made famous by Perry Como and very appropriate for the last round at Cheers, "Make it one for ma baby an' one more for the road." Bette Midler sang the same song to Johnny Carson on his next to last Tonight Show.
