  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • The episode title is an allusion to the 1941 John Ford film, How Green Was My Valley, starring Walter Pidgeon and Maureen O'Hara, which was based on the 1939 Richard Llewellyn novel of the same name.

    • Dave Madden played the Partridges' manager Ruben Kincaid on the series, The Partridge Family. This is alluded to during his brief scene with Danny Bonaduce in this episode.

    • When Gary Coleman is fining the Bundy's for their driveway Al informs him that the driveway belongs to the D'Arcy's but that the only black person they respect is Ted Danson. This is in reference to when Ted Danson was in blackface at a Friar's Club Roast.

    • Gary Coleman appears as an Inspector in this episode, claiming Al has violated some code fining him $1500. After being asked by Al if he is, in fact Gary Coleman, Gary Coleman says he is not and says he hates him. Leading the audience to laugh because he is him.
