The lighting in this episode could have been better. For instance, as the family is at the table eating breakfast( in the opening scene), you can notice shadows all around Edith when Archie sits down.
Archie: You're colored.
Chester Byrd: Yes I am.
Archie: You didn't sound colored on the phone.
Chester Byrd: I used the white telephone.
Edith: (in response to the broken furnace) Archie made a joke about it. 'Looks like we got a religious utility here. It never works on Sundays'! (laughs)
