  • This is one of the very first times Red threatens a "foot in the ass" to one of the characters.
  • Running Gags: Eric continues to imagine his parents naked; characters referencing the pot leaf on the water tower looks like someone giving the finger.
  • At the beginning of the episode, Jackie is wearing a T-shirt with a picture of herself on the front; this type of t-shirt with iron-on pictures were quite popular in the 70s, although most people did not wear one with a picture of themself on it. However, Jackie is conceited and quite self-absorbed, making it so it isn't far-fetched she would have had the idea.
Kitty Tube Top

Kitty's Nude Tube Top (Noticeable At The Bottom Of The Snapshot)

  • When Eric and his family are eating breakfeast and he starts imagining Red and Kitty naked, you can see that Debra Jo Rupp (Kitty) is wearing a tube top, and is not actually naked.
  • Tanya Roberts and Don Stark are absent from the main cast in this episode.
