    Notes (7)

    • Carol Brady is the only Brady who already had the measles. This is also the only episode that the Mike and Carol mentions the diseases that the kids already had in the past.

    • This is the first of 29 episodes directed by Oscar Rudolph, who would direct more BB episodes than any other person.

    • The kids are playing Monopoly, even though the brand name is covered along with the Community Chest & Chance cards are in the wrong positions.

    • This is the only episode where we see Mike making a mixed drink of some kind at the bar in the living room.

    • At the end of the episode, Dr. Porter and Dr. Cameron combine their practice and the Bradys decide to keep them both. However, they are replaced the following season by Dr. Howard.

    • This episode is just like All in the Family when Mike, Gloria and Archie argue over what sex the doctor should operate on Mike's appendix.

    • When Carol was counting the trays and what's on them, she and later Mike, sing to the tune of "Twelve Days Of Christmas."
