  • Trivia

    • This episode marks Alice Garvey's resignation as Walnut Grove's teacher, after working for less than one year. Of all five teachers that taught there throughout the series, her tenure was the shortest. Alice Garvey resigns, but we never really get an explanation why. One can only assume that she either wanted to get back to being a housewife, or she didn't like having to be the mother of one of her students.
