    Notes (2)

    • Mr. Roarke introduces Patrick Apaka (the baby) from San Francisco, California.

    • Mr. Roarke introduces Bunny Kelly, Gretchen Wassermann and Olaf Olafsen as co-workers from the Big Beaver Barbell Factory in Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania.

    Trivia (1)

    • Continuity Goof: In the scene where Olaf Olafsen is lifting the weight and Dr. R.M. Bunk trips him, in the close-up of their feet has Olaf wearing a pair of Converse (nylon and suede, blue and white) sneakers.  Before and after the close-up, Olaf is wearing a pair of Adidas (nylon and suede, blue and yellow) sneakers.  This is a continuity goof in editing the episode.
