    • Marcia: You know where my diary is?!?! Oh, Cindy, I could kiss you! Where is it? Cindy: I gave it to that man. Marcia: What man? Cindy: The one Mommy gave all the other old books to. Marcia: Oh no, Cindy, tell me you didn't! Cindy: Okay, I didn't......but I did.

    • Desi Arnaz Jr.: How about that! I never thought I'd top Captain Kangaroo!

    Notes (3)

    • Gordon Jump appears here as Mr. Collins. He would later go on to fame portraying Arthur Carlson, station owner of WKRP in Cincinnati.

    • Eve Plumb (Jan) didn't share on screen time with Desi, Jr. in this episode, but she did later appear as Desi's cousin Patricia in the Here's Lucy episode "Lucy and Donny Osmond" (11/20/1972).

    • Maureen McCormick, who played Marcia, didn't just pretend to have a crush on the guest star, Desi Arnaz Jr., in this episode. She had a crush on him in real life as well.

    Trivia (1)

    • Carol and Cindy look for Marcia's diary in "Gilbert's Books"

    Allusions (2)

    • Title pun: "The Impossible Dream", the famous song from the musical Man of La Mancha

    • Alice: about Desi Arnaz Jr. : "...Oh, I've seen him on The Lucy Show..."
      This would be Here's Lucy, the later sitcom with Lucie and Desi Arnaz co-starring with Lucille Ball.
