Reverend Eric Camden
The credit song played at the end of this episode is different from the one that plays for the rest of the episodes.
Simon begs his parents for a dog in this episode. Interestingly, when Gallagher appeared as John Travolta and Kirstie Alley's son Mikey in 1993's Look Who's Talking Now, he played a child who desperately wanted his parents to buy him a dog.
Annie says to Eric about Happy, "Isn`t he cute?" and Simon says, "Good boy." It was revealed later on in the episode that Happy is a girl. This is most likely due to the first part being the original unaired pilot and the second part the reshoot, but is still a major goof.
After Matt comes in the room they all rush out and Simon runs downstairs. If you look closely, Lucy and Mary run into their room. It switches to the parents saying "Thanks", and you see the door again and Simon is once again running downstairs. Also Lucy says "Come on Mary let's get breakfast" and they run straight to their room. What about breakfast?
Eric: (about the kids) Why is it that they like your parents and not mine?
Annie: Because my parents are better.
Simon: (to Eric) You know dog is God spelled backwards.
Annie: (after Lucy ran out in the middle of Eric's sermon) I used that same "To everything there is a season" line when I was talking to her about her period. She thought you were about to tell the whole Church.
Eric: Why would she think that?
Annie: Because she's 12 and a little crazy right now.
Ruthie: When is Mom going to make us something to eat?
Eric: Well, why don't I make us something to eat?
Ruthie: Because you don't cook so good.
Eric: Who says I'm a bad cook?
Ruthie: No one. They don't want to hurt your feelings.
Eric: (to Lucy, who locked herself in the bathroom) Luce? It's your dad, remember me? The guy who bought you anatomically correct dolls by mistake? Come on, we have a history of embarrassing things between us. Let's talk. Not that there's anything to be embarrassed about. Hey, have you started your period yet? Because, you know, I was going through something similar myself, and--
Lucy: Go away!
Matt: I think I know why Happy is so happy, I think Happy is going to have puppies.
Simon: Don't tell Dad.
Annie: So, Mom and Dad what's up?
Jenny: I have Acute Leukemia.
Annie: Well they have treatments for Leukemia?
Jenny: Well they don't give me much hope.
Annie: (referring to Mary being out with Jeff) So, we'll postpone this talk with Mary.
Eric: I already talked to her.
Annie: (referring to the fact Annie brought a dog home without talking to him first) I thought we were gonna talk together, lets just say were even.
Eric: Why do you think Matt said he'd be happy to drive to the airport and pick your parents up?
Annie: Matt our son, who has only had his license for 3 months doesn't mind driving to the airport to pick up my parents.
Annie: Where's Matt?
Eric: Probably heading for gate 3 now.
Annie: What? You know you and I have got to set some rules for the kids that we both agree on.
Annie: I told the dog, we'd see it isn't definite. I got the dog at the pound, he didn't just run into the yard.
Eric: So, even though I assure you there is a God, he had nothing to do with this.
Simon: Sure he did, Mom wouldn't do this on her own.
Eric: I just want to know where the communication broke down.
Annie: When the guy told me the dog was going to be put down in 24 hours.
Eric: Just so I know.
(Annie unexpectedly shows up with a dog in the yard)
Annie: I don't know what came over me.
Eric: Annie, what are you doing.
Annie: Well, I was going to the pound and I was just gonna look.
Eric: Well, the pound is not a good place just to look.
Matt: Dad, I quit.
Eric: How did it go?
Mrs. Bink: Worked like a charm.
Ruthie: (sees Lucy standing on her head): Whatcha doin'?
Lucy: I'm becoming a woman, so leave me alone.
Eric: Simon, well you know sometimes we don't always get what we want.
Simon: Yeah I know, but it would be good if I did, just this time.
Eric: (to Lucy) Are congratulations in order here ... then congratulations, this is a important day.
Mrs. Bink: Where are my cigarettes?
Matt: Didn't you say you lost a lung?
Mrs. Bink: That's none of your business I thought you smoked, well you got any on you.
Eric: How come they like your parents and they don't like mine?
Annie: Cause, mine are better.
Eric: If you loose this job you owe me 6 months of Sundays in church.
Matt: Its not gonna happen. You know that talk you and Mom had with me about men and women?
Eric: One of my finest moments.
Matt: Well you and Mom might wanna have that talk with Mary.
Simon: (to Eric) I think if there is a God, he knows me a little better than you do, and believes I am plenty responsible.
Lucy: I'm gonna stay in this house for the rest of my life until I become a barren old woman.
Mary: Well you can't its not our house, it's the Church's house, someday someone is gonna make you get out, so you might as well get out now.
Lucy: You think the person who died and left this house to the church was insane. Maybe she's still hanging around maybe I'm possessed.
Mary: You're not possessed, you just have P.M.S.
Eric: (to his congregation) I'd like to read something from Ecclesiastes although most of you may have thought this was from the Byrds, indeed it is from Ecclesiastes, for everything there is a season... Lucy runs out
Simon: (during Amazing Grace) Please God, just let a dog come into our yard today, that's and I promise I won't ever let him die ever.
Eric: I'll have a cup of coffee black.
Eric: Filter or non-filter, what is it you smoke?
Matt: It's not like its Pot it's just cigarettes.
Eric: Not really a good point, Matt. So, the cigarettes cost me what in allowance.
Matt: You know its not like I'm walking around with all kinds of money.
Eric: Welcome to the club. Do you know how you get money?
Matt: Yeah, you get a job.
Lucy: Can you please tell Dad to stay out of this?
Annie: He just wants you to feel comfortable talking with him about everything.
Lucy: I don't wanna talk about it, I just wanna do it, all my friends are doing it and I'm like some kinda freak.
Annie: You're not a freak. You'll start your period.
Lucy: What if I don't?
Annie: Have you ever heard for everything there is a season, a time to uhh…hmm a time to do something or other. The point is that you just have to let nature take its course you can't hurry these things.
Mary: (referring to kissing) The point is, I don't know where my hands go or his hands or my face or his face or his lips or my lips, and I don't want it to be awkward, couldn't you just show me so I have some experience.
Matt: Don't kiss me.
Mary: Would you stop, I'm not gonna kiss you. Ok, so do I touch his face with my hands. Mary moves her hand toward his face
Matt: No, look if anybody touches face, he touches your face or maybe he doesn't, I don't know.
Mary (starts moving toward a kiss) So I close my eyes and...Eric sees Mary trying to kiss Matt
Matt: Oh Dad, this isn't what it looks like.
Eric: That's a relief.
Mary: (to Matt who is smoking) Have you lost your mind, you're gonna get caught.
Simon: It's just I was the baby for a long time and I miss the individual attention, and I can get that from a dog without having to bother you so much, and I would feet it and walk it and it would be no trouble at all.
Annie: Simon, the bottom line is your dad and I have talked about this and the decision was no dog.
Simon: Lucky for me, you have a mind of your own.
Annie: (to Eric) You wanna talk dog with Simon or puberty with Lucy?
Simon: Can I have Mom, please Dad, please?
Eric: So you took up plumbing when we were pregnant with Simon?
Annie: No, Electrical and Plumbing was Mary, Simon was Ethnic Cooking.
Annie: Wanna come with me under the kitchen sink?
Eric: I'd go anywhere with you babe.
Eric: (to Matt) We play you win, we don't talk, or, we play I win, we talk.
Matt: But I've never beaten you.
Eric: (to Lucy) You're looking awfully grown up these days.
Lucy: (to her family) I'm not a baby you know, I want to eat in my room.
Simon: May I please say the blessing now?
Annie: What's your hurry you got a date?
Matt: I hope he doesn't because I need the car.
Mary: I thought you were gonna help be with my foul shot.
Simon: Dear God, thank you for this food and if their really is a God, God I know you'll find a way to get me that dog I wanted.
Eric: Well let me assure you there really is a God and secondly congratulation on going over our heads to get what you wanted.
Simon: You know dog is God spelled backwards.
Matt: (to his younger siblings) It's Saturday, the day Mom and Dad sleep late.
"Anything You Want" by Roy Orbison
The show's theme song is 7th Heaven by Steve Plunkett.
In the Teen People interview with Jessica Biel (Mary Camden), she admitted that in the pilot episode she and Barry Watson (Matt Camden) were originally meant to kiss each other, instead of almost kiss, when her character needed to test her kissing skills on someone. They refused to do it as it would be too incestuous and the scene was changed.
When Annie and Eric are making dinner while music is playing, part the song reflects the title of the episode's name, "Anything You Want".
Happy, the family dog, is not included in the opening credits in this episode, although Happy does appear in the episode.
The WB gave Spelling a choice on whether he wanted to air "7th Heaven" on Sunday nights or Monday nights. If he aired it on Sunday nights it would have been up against a competing drama on CBS, "Touched by an Angel". On Monday he would be competing against his own FOX drama "Melrose Place". He chose Mondays.
Re-aired again as the second premiere of the show on September 16, 1996.
For the majority of this season, "Savannah" aired opposite "7th Heaven".
If you have seen the pilot episode of "7th Heaven", you know that the Camden house is very different from the way it usually is. That's because it's not the same house and was just supposed to be used only for the pilot episode. The house that was used in "7th Heaven"'s pilot episode was also featured in movies like American Pie & Bye, Bye Love. When "7th Heaven" was picked up, the production team had to build their own house and sets for the show. Basically, the first house was a loan for the pilot episode.
Eric and Annie: Eric to Church: "I'd like to read something from Ecclesiastes although most of you may have thought this was from the Byrds, indeed it is from Ecclesiastes, for everything there is a season…"
Eric is giving a quote to the church from Ecclesiastes in which the Byrds made into a song called Turn! Turn! Turn!
