  • Trivia

    • The original cold open to this episode featured Harriette telling Eddie, Laura and Judy to wash the dishes while she gets ready to go to a PTA meeting. After the original airing of this episode the producers replaced it with a new cold open to feature Harriette and Carl sitting at the table and Steve Urkel comes with a robe on saying he was taking a bath, to make it look as if Urkel was on from the beginning. The first season DVD set uses the original version.
