In this episode, Howard tries to join the Leopard Lodge, but in episode 35, he is already a member.
Marion: What's bothering you, Richard?
Richie: Nothing, Mom. Why?
Marion: Well, I always know when my children are troubled. You see, Joanie sucks her thumb, you stand holding the basketball and you don't shoot, and Chuck just sucks his thumb.
Howard earns a spot in the Leopard Lodge.
The Fish and The Fins are actually Flash Cadillac and The Continental Kids (Sam McFadin, Kris Moe, Linn Phillips, and Jeff Stewart).
