    • Archie: Your granddaughter’s not going to win. She’s too fat to win! In a few years she’s going to be a teenage bus.

    • Archie: Your relatives live in Jersey, with all the other people who don’t care nothin’ about life!

    • Gloria: Besides, Joey is much cuter than all these other YUCKY babies.

    Notes (2)

    • This episode was videotaped on November 12, 1976.

    • It's quite ironic when Archie mentions that he wrote in Reagan for the election, and that Reagan would win the election in 1980. In 1980, Ronald Reagan did in fact win the presidential election. A 4 year old prediction, and what a prediction it was...even if it was unintentional.

    Trivia (1)

    • Mike's moustache looks strange in this episode. It looks like he had shaved and they had him wear a fake one.
