    • The episode title references the nickname of a particular old U.S. flag which belonged to sea Captain William Driver during the 1800s. The fragile flag is in the custody of the Smithsonian. Old Glory has also become a familiar term (along with Stars and Stripes) for the American flag generally.

      Peggy Hill's ongoing struggles to retain or regain her old glory as Substitute Teacher of the Year pitted against a more educated rival gets literally entangled with Bill's effort to preserve a U.S. flag with special meaning from his own life.
