Just before Barney opens the door to leave the Bunkers' house, a television camera can be seen briefly to the right of the screen.
When Archie frantically answers the phone after his Cannonballers tryout you can see the overhead mike.
The man delivering the package looks like he's got a U.S. Postal service uniform on and is credited as "Mailman". Why is the Post Office delivering to the Bunkers on a Sunday morning? This is even more mysterious when it turns out to be a legitimate package from Cousin Amelia--a bomb (delivered by a guy dressed as a postman) would've made more sense!
At the end while playing card, Edith's drinking glass changes from a short glass to a tall glass.
Gloria says that she never knew her grandparents, but in the first episode it was stated that Archie's parents visited the year before. Gloria would've known them for sure.
Barney Hefner's wife is called "Mabel" in this episode, but later in the series, she is known as "Blanche."
Gloria claims that while it is illegal to sell horse meat for human consumption in New York, it is perfectly legal in New Jersey.However, this was only true during WWII because of rationing and low beef supplies. After the war, it became illegal again.
Archie says his address quite a few times "704 Hauser Street" and the reason I bring that up is that the number "704" is the date for Indepedence Day and I am sure Archie, being a war veteran, wouldn't have wanted it any other way!
When Archie plays a tape recording of Stretch Cunningham telling a joke, Stretch's voice is different than what we witness in later episodes.
Possible oversight: When it was Archie's turn to use the pool table, the 2 guys who used it last , left balls on the table. 4 solid and 4 striped balls( including the 8 ball). That tells me there was no winner of that game.
When Louise extends her formal invitation to Archie, she says that "George said he wasn't going to touch solid food" until Archie had been invited.
In fact, George didn't say anything. Louise told George that she was going to invite Archie and that he would be "eating your dinner through a straw" if he said no.
Goof: When Irene comes to bring over Mike's test results, Archie appears out of nowhere in the middle of the scene. He had not been seen in the episode for about nine and a half minutes and was said by Mike to not have been home, yet tells Edith to open Mike's test results.
Charlotte Rae, who plays Lillian Henderson in this episode, is best known as Edna Garrett, from the popular television show Diff'rent Strokes, and it's spin-off The Facts of Life.
When Mike and Gloria are sitting on the couch , speechless after what Archie just said, you can see something moving in the window, through the curtains, right over Gloria's left shoulder.
While Archie is trying to sell George aluminum siding, you can see the Jefferson's house next door through the back door, and it already has aluminum siding on it.
This is the only time George Jefferson flushes four toilets in the apartment.
We find out that The Jeffersons has four bathrooms in the apartment.
Edith gave Louise fruit for her subway ride to Manhattan, but in the opening credits to 'The Jeffersons', Louise and George took a cab.
In this episode, George says he rented a limo to "leave Bunkersville in style". However, in the opening credits of The Jeffersons, they are riding in a taxi.
We learn the name of the company Archie works at when he reads it off a company pen: Prendergast Tool & Die Company.
