    • Mike: (taps on his dinner glass) Okay kids, that's it. You are all released from your vow of silence. Now, I want to hear a little conversation and not about the weather.

    • (Mike and Carol secretly buy "surprise party" gifts from everyone to Peter) Alice: Open that one next...I'm just DYING to know what I got you...!

    Notes (2)

    • This episode is the second of the three episodes in which the first scene is Marcia coming home with love with the same background music.

    • Note how relevant this seemingly relevance-free episode would become just a few months after this episode aired, in the wake of the Watergate scandal.
