    Notes (2)

    • The mood on the set during this episode was anything but happy, as it had been announced that CBS would not renew the show for the following season. It was about a month later, in March 1962, after Sheldon Leonard made several impassioned speaches to the various sponsors that the show was saved.

    • Listen for Rob to explain why pain can be funny.
