  • Trivia

    • Nels Oleson is usually the voice of reason throughout the series, especially in contrast to his wife. In this episode, however, when Elmer is over for dinner at the Olesons, Nels allows Willie and Nancy to laugh at Elmer's voracious eating stunt and doesn't tell them to stop. It's as if Nels literally doesn't know what to say, but in other episodes, when Harriet is away, he usually jumps at the chance to discipline his children the way he sees fit, and that's certainly not the case here.
