  • Notes

    • This episode was videotaped on October 29, 1971.

    • The guys at Kelsey's are watching basketball on the TV. You can hear the announcer say the names 'Frazier' and 'Bradley' so it must be the Knicks. But why are the Knicks playing at about 6:30 PM (EST) on a Friday night? Isn't that like an hour before the usual tip-off?

    • It seems highly unlikely that any network - especially CBS - would interrupt its own newscast for a three minute Oval Office statement from Richard Nixon. These Presidential Statements are generally targeted for prime time for the widest exposure, and the New York CBS news broadcast would have been 7:00pm.

    • Dan Rather and Richard Nixon are seen in achival footage on the TV in Kelsey's.

  • Allusions

    • Edith tells Archie that the TV picture goes out in the afternoon when she's watching The Edge of Night, and usually stays out until after The Secret Storm. Both were popular soap operas at the time.
