    • There is a couple of funny scenes when Steve is in the car (after offering a ride to a midget named Billy) and Mike happens to pull up in his jalopy on the opposite corner. He thinks Steve is having a conversation with himself as Billy is not plainly visible over the car's dashboard. Similarly, later in the episode Mike answers the front door and nearly misses the midget gentleman. Steve sees Mike talking to what appears to be nothing as Billy's height doesn't make him instantly seen.

    • This episode is considered a big fan favourite for its "Twilight Zone" style of story, as Steve finds he returns to an identical house with a near identical female family living in it. Is it a dream? The story is cleverly handled by director Richard Whorf and all elements come together to fashion an intriguingly out of left-field segment. Veteran character actress Verna Felton is given the status of “Special Guest Star”. Playing the mother, Mary Jackson, who had also appeared in a Season One episode would go on to fame as one of the Baldwin sisters on "The Waltons" (1972-81). She died in 2005 aged 95.
