  • Notes

    • This episode reminded me of how a slight adlib can mean so much. Listening to Steve speak another lingo, William Frawley as Bub says the off handed line, "I'm commencing to feel like Desi Arnaz's house boy" an obvious reference to his former employer and co-star on "I Love Lucy" (1951-57). Similarly, Steve wants Mike to cherish learning at a young age, so he pulls a fast one. He makes his own recording that emphasizes the importance of learning the correct way. When Bub hears this recording, he says Steve sounds like an announcer he once knew in Burlington, Iowa. ("Bub", William Frawley was born and grew up in Burlington.)
