Behind the scenes

  • "Cherchez La Femme" is a French idiom which translates literally as "search for the woman" and can be understood best as meaning when a man has a problem, there is surely a woman at the source. "Cherchez La Femme" was also a #1 US dance hit performed by the big band/disco group Dr. Buzzard's Original Savannah Band, released in 1976.
  • Joshua Sawyer came up with the idea of creating perks for homosexual and bisexual characters, including Cherchez La Femme and Confirmed Bachelor.[1]
