After the ashtray moving scene, Samantha zaps Darrin a drink. He looks at the drink and starts to collapse. In the next view of him, he is in a chair and the empty glass is sitting on the table with the straw laying across the top of the glass.
The Stephenses' home is introduced as 1164 Morning Glory Circle. They also have some new neighbors as well, Gladys and Abner Kravitz.
Gladys looks through the 1164 living room window. Paint has not been scraped from the window glass. In the second view from inside of Gladys looking through the window, there is no paint on the glass.
Gladys looks through the living room window of 1164. Part of the facade cross-bracing shows in the dimly lit window.
The names Endora calls Darrin begin to roll with this episode. They include "What's It", "What's His Name", "Dennis", and "Young Man."
As Samantha and the neighbors walk along the upstairs hall, they walk off to the right as if walking on air above the steps.
Samantha's hairdo changes completely from neat to messy during the dog chase scene down the alley.
This episode was later remade for season 8 as "A Good Turn Never Goes Unpunished," which first aired March 11, 1972.
This marks the first time Samantha is seen wearing her witches' flying suit.
Darrin is chasing the floating suit cases down the stairs. He grabs the railing at the top of the stairs and nearly pulls it off it's so loose.
The brick wall and a piece of equipment show through the open kitchen door.
While having a heated discussion with about societal prejudice against witches, Darrin argues, "If I were prejudiced, I wouldn't've married you would I?" Samantha replies, "Oh so that's it. You think you did me a big favour. Took the little witch in. Quite a sacrifice. Must make you feel very self-righteous." Neither acknowledges that Darrin did not know Samantha was a witch when he married her and only learned the truth on their wedding night. This matter is later addressed in season two's "What Every Young Man Should Know."
One of the very few times a witch's name doesn't end in the letter "a" happens in this episode with the character "Mary."
This episode contains several pieces of information about witches that would be contradicted in subsequent seasons.
1. Samantha says that her mother, Endora, gets so upset over Halloween each year that she flies to the South of France "til it all blows over."
In a later episode, however, Samantha (and Darrin, by proxy) gets invited to her mother's "annual" Halloween bash.
2. Bertha makes the comment that, if the mortals ever did find out that they were witches, they'd better take out lots of fire insurance. Samantha comments, "Oh Bertha, they stopped burning us years ago."
In a subsequent episode, Samantha and Darrin find themselves in old Salem, and Samantha makes a speech about how the people they've put on trial couldn't possibly be witches because no mere ropes or binds could hold one; she then causes her own binds to disappear.
Sam and Darrin's phone number is 555-7328.
In this episode, the Tates meet Endora for the first time.
Samantha tells Maurice that Darrin is from Massachusetts. In the pilot, Darrin says he's from Missouri.
It's usual that some warlocks or witches are better in their profession than others. Maurice seems to be one of the best. In this episode it is also shown that an extreme difficult spell demands an enormously physical activation. Maurice gets almost exhausted when he casts the particular spells.
When Larry comes in to tell Darrin he is going home, the blinds behind Darrin are closed. However, on the close-up of Darrin, the blinds are open.
At one point, Sam zaps a backyard swimming pool for a quick dip on a hot day, then zaps it away. Gladys sees all this from across the street, but Sam and Darrin's backyard was off the rear of their house and could not be seen from the street.
