Cybill would often steal storylines directly from the Ellen (1994) sitcom. This episode is no different: almost scene-by-scene, they copied the robbery being in progress while the protagonist & her friend are home, the self-defense class, the male mannequin sitting on the couch and serving as crime prevention, they even shamelessly lifted the title from Ellen: Guns 'N Ellen (1995), which aired the year before.
