  • Trivia

    • Notice how much more make-up Melissa Gilbert (Laura) appears to be wearing in this episode and throughout Season 6. Her blush and eye shadow are very bright and noticeable, not at all subtle, and since she was still portraying a young schoolgirl at this point, it shouldn't have been that way. Obviously, though, this was done to help ensure that Laura's transformation from child to adult was a little less sudden by the time they reached the season finale.
