  • Notes

    • This episode was videotaped on January 08, 1971.

    • When Archie asks for two beers over a the table that Steve and he are sitting at, neither of them ever take a drink of either beer. The glasses get moved twice, but no one drinks. In addition, the beer is served in iced tea glasses.

    • There's a nice touch of reality when Steve is eating peanuts where one falls from mouth but they left it in. It's something that's likely to really happen accidentally but most shows would cut it out.

    • Who would have seen it coming that the two leads, Anthony Geary and Philip Carey would go on to the land of soap operas? Anthony Geary would play the character of "Luke Spencer" on General Hospital and Philip Carey would play the character of "Asa Buchanan" on the daytime soap, One Life to Live.
