Near the end, Peg mentions to Al that he needs to get 23 pins. to win. The scorecard shown a minute before Al's final turn is the scorecard of the Bundy team and it shows that Al had a strike a strike in the 8th, followed by a spare in the 9th frame. Al's first throw scored a strike which meant, he already got 20 points for it. So Al's second strike was actually the game winner, regardless of what his 3rd roll was since they needed 23 pins and Al had already 30.
First time in the series that the Bundys do the "Whoa Bundy!" cheer.
Steve: Listen Bud, are your folks in? I wanted to ask them if I can be an adopted Bundy. That would help explain my hygiene, grammar and full set of teeth.
Bud: Mr. Rhoades, could you do me a favor and run over my hand with your car?
Steve: When will this punk stuff end?
Peggy: My husband is better than your husband more than you're better than me.
Mimi: Oh yeah? But my kids are better than your kids better than I'm better than you.
Peggy: Yeah well, you're aging badly.
Mimi: Peg, so life hasn't been too good to you, huh?
Peggy: I don't work.
Mimi: Well, I don't work either.
Peggy: I don't do anything.
Mimi: Neither do I. I have a maid.
Peggy: Not me. My house is a sty and I don't care.
The episode title is an allusion to the 1966 Jacqueline Susann novel, Valley of the Dolls, which was made into a feature film of the same name in 1967.
