Steven and Elyse deliberate about whether to continue the 20-year tradition of re-honeymooning with the Davises. Such deliberation proves pointless in Episode 19 when the Davises terminate their marriage.
Steven enters a private country club wearing a flannel shirt and a baseball jacket, and walks right over to Alex's table. It seems highly unlikely that such an exclusive venue would allow him full access, especially as a non-member, dressed in such a way.
Steven reveals in this episode that the family car is a Volvo.
The song Steven has playing in the living room is a protest song called "Days of Decision" by folk singer Phil Ochs.
Elyse suggested to Steven that a romantic evening would include Johnny Mathis records. Johnny Mathis occasionally sings the Theme Song with Deniese Williams.
At the Carlton Country Club, a waiter offers Steven an hors d'oeurve called "rumaki," and Steven requests some without liver. Essential ingredients of rumaki include water chestnuts and chicken liver, wrapped in bacon.
During the father-son reconciliation scene, Steven compares his unusual relationship with Alex to the relationship he had with his own father, Jake. Grandfather Jake will be introduced and featured in Episode #5, I Never Killed for My Father.
In this episode we learn that Jennifer is 9 years old, Alex is 17 years old.
