  • Trivia

    • Near the end of the episode, Matt and Simon receive their shots so quickly and painlessly, they are stunned when the doctor tells them it's over. From there, they just take their lollipops and walk out. If Matt and Simon really did get shots, then they would have Band-Aids placed on their arms to cover the minor bleeding, and it's very obvious that the doctor didn't do that.

    • The Camdens' home phone number is 555-0157 stated by Ruthie in the beginning of the episode.

    • When Simon locks his bedroom door, Matt's room has a door to the side, that Matt and Mary had to go through to get him out.

      Mary: You're right, you can't, but you can get out of my way.

    • Eric: I just can't go for a security system over a person.
      Lou: And that's what makes you a caring, compassionate minister...and a lousy businessman.

    • Lou: Eric, the church is wide open!
