  • Trivia

    • In this episode, prior to meeting Dr. and Mrs. Ledoux, Harriet Oleson ignorantly assumes that they are French. You'd think she would have learned her lesson in Season 5's Blind Journey, when she mistook Hester-Sue Terhune for a high-profile white woman.

      Not only did she forget the lesson about making assumptions about people she's not yet met, she also seems to have forgotten the revelation that a person's skin color did not make a difference. She was doing fairly well in that area (especially with regards to her relationship with Hester-Sue) until this episode.
