    • TRIVIA (1)

      • The famous "Sliding Squares" opening sequence makes its debut with this episode, along with a new arrangement of the theme. The original version of the sequence would last until the end of the 1986-1987 season.

    • QUOTES (0)

    • NOTES (6)

      • James Houghton ("Kenny"), Kim Langford ("Ginger") & Constance McCashin ("Laura") do not appear in this episode. In this episode, when Karen & Val were listening to Jeff's conversations on tape about Abby having an affair with Richard, Laura was correcting her husband's Richard's last name, from Averil to Avery, which was heard on tape.

      • Karen & Val listens to Abby's ex-husband's, Jeff's message (on tape), as to why he thinks it's better that he lives with Brian & Olivia rather than Abby, in this episode and he's not to be seen.

      • While Sid & Salmaggio are both involved in a serious car accident that went over the beach road, Val told Karen that the minute that she (Val) and Gary first moved to California, the Ewings came with absolutely nothing, no job, no friends, however, when Richard suggested to Gary that he'd work for Karen's 1st husband (Sid) and on becoming a vice-president for Knots Landing Motors, Gary actually sold stolen parts to the business and by last season's cliffhanger, Sid drove in a tampered car with an FBI agent, and the car went into the embankment road below the beach.

      • During this season, "Knots Landing" was moved to a new timeslot, Thursdays at 9:00 p.m.

      • John Pleshette (Richard) wrote this episode.

      • This episode has a new opening sequence that "Knots Landing" will become very famous for: clips from various episodes and cast floating side to side in a black background. This opening sequence will remain with the show until the 9th season.
