# 218 <9.13> Four Women
 
 
(revised 10/05/2020)
 
 
When Sharpe jokingly introduces Lauren as Lola and she corrects him, Jace replies: "Whatever Lola wants, Lauren gets." This is an allusion to the saying "Whatever Lola wants, Lola gets." This saying was inspired by Irish-born LOLA MONTEZ (1821 - 1861), who performed Spanish dances and became an actress, courtesan and mistress of KING LUDWIG I OF BAVARIA. She later became a San Francisco gold rush vamp. The saying became famous as a song title written by RICHARD ADLER and JERRY ROSS for the 1955 musical play "Damns Yankees" and was recorded by various artists, SARAH VAUGHAN being one of the first.
 
Fictional entity: Another company is mentioned in context with one of Richard's business deals: Cumberland.
 
The explanation for Richard's new office, Channing & Associates (Channing & Company in early script drafts), is a new floor in the same building. - But this is actually a complete new filming location in a low-rise office building at the corner of Burbank Boulevard and Owensmouth Avenue in Woodland Hills, CA.
 
Mistake: In the scene with Genele and Danny in the Agretti Residence, the close-ups of them are from various takes that were combined in the editing process. This becomes apparent because Genele's hands are in a slightly different position in subsequent frames.
Again, this is the typical mistake caused by the particular close-up filming technique - check # 001 (Gus in the Gioberti House) for details.
 
According to original script drafts, the scene with Danny asking Genele to have sex with him, a storyline that came out of nowhere and lead to nowhere, was supposed to be totally different: Sharpe told Genele to make a man of Danny.
 
Mistake: In the scene with Richard and Pilar in the anteroom of his new office (an interior set in contrast to his office itself), the close-ups of them are from various takes that were combined in the editing process. This becomes apparent when only the cover of the folder Pilar is holding is opened in the first frame, but another page is opened in the subsequent frame (filmed from across).
Again, this is the typical mistake caused by the particular close-up filming technique - check # 001 (Gus in the Gioberti House) for details.
 
In the anteroom of Richard's office at Channing & Associates, lithographs of drawings by U.S. American ornithologist and painter JOHN JAMES AUDUBON (1785 - 1851) are hanging on the walls; these were first published in his color-plate book entitled "The Birds of America". These lithographs are: "Shoveller Duck" (pictures in row 1), "Goosander Ducks" (row 2) and "Snowy Heron" (row 3).
 

The elevator in which Richard confronts Jace (presumably at his apartment building) is actually located in the clubhouse of the Santa Monica Windjammers Yacht Club at the yacht harbor in Marina Del Rey, CA.

 

The clothes store where Pilar and Sydney are shopping is actually the changing room in the clubhouse of the Santa Monica Windjammers Yacht Club at the yacht harbor in Marina Del Rey, CA.

 
Sharpe's yacht is at slip 12 of Sausalito Yacht Club. The filming location is the yacht harbor in Marina Del Rey, CA - Mindanao Way. The Burton W. Chace Park in Marina Del Rey, CA is visible in the background.
 
The payphone (Sydney calls Lance) is actually on the northern side of Mindanao Way just near the entrance to the Santa Monica Windjammers Yacht Club.
 

Sharpe's yacht is the Dandeana luxury yacht in real life. The flagship yacht of the FANTASEA YACHTS company was built by SWIFTSHIPS Inc. in 1975 and is 110 feet long with a maximum occupancy of 130 guests. The rear of the upper deck was remodeled with a glass cover since filming.

 

Danny now drives a dark gray Mercedes-Benz 500 SEC Coupé (type C126).

 
Fictional entity: Unidak is another company Richard wanted to do business with.
 
Fictional entity: Jason Sampson is now Vice President of Oakmont National Bank.
 
Season time frame: Richard forced Jace to leave Channing & Sampson two weeks ago. That was in # 216, i.e. around the first or second week of January 1990, thus making it around the end of January 1990 now. Apparently, a few days or even weeks must have gone by between # 217 and the current episode because Lauren had already been released from the hospital at the beginning of the current episode.
 

The driveway to Richard's house where Lauren comes out in her van, is near the heavily filmed fence on the CBS-MTM backlot (compare # 086, 1896 and 195). As Genele parks in front of the gate and walks up to the front door, it seems that Richard's house is not the ranch anymore.

 
The hillside road from where Danny and Sydney enjoy the nightly view over Tuscany (the view of the town is stock footage) is actually the berm near the heavily filmed bend behind stage 4 on the CBS-MTM backlot, which was also used for # 207 and 213 (see there) as well as # 073, 084, 089, 113, 121, 135, 137, 172, 174, 176, 180, 191, 192, 196, 197, 199 and 203.
 

The terrace of Michael Sharpe's house is actually the rooftop terrace of the Santa Monica Windjammers Yacht Club at the yacht harbor in Marina Del Rey, CA.
