Episode Summary

Down the Shore
June 19, 1964: Jim Bunning's on the mound for the Phillies and the Pryors have just begun their annual Wildwood vacation. Roxanne isn't with them because she's still mad at a still-distressed Meg. But her rich new friend Carol has invited her to her beach club at "the Crest." And Meg returns the favor, getting Carol and her friends into a Bandstand beach "hop" featuring the Kinks. Meanwhile, Helen finally tells Jack about Professor Witt's advance. Back in town, J.J.'s at home---with Beth while Henry's minding the North Philly store. The neighborhood is steaming and the city pool hasn't opened yet.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Goof: In one scene, a shot of a seaside carnival shows a mural of a whale in the background. This mural is painted by marine-life artist Wyland as part of his Whaling Wall series and was not painted until 1998 at the Santa Monica Pier. In one shot you can clearly see the artist's signature and the dedication date. Additionally, the mural is of California Gray Whales, which are not indigenous to the Atlantic.

    • Please note that the DATE for this show is June 21,1964 and not the 19th as indicated elsewhere on this page. It was Father's Day 1964 and Jim Bunning threw a perfect game that Sunday afternoon.
