Although Cynthia Pepper only played the next door neighbour role eight times in the first season, she made such an impression as Mike's girlfriend that you always suspected they'd get married one day. She was offered the title role in the series "Margie" in 1961, thinking she might have made the big time, and promptly left the series. Unfortunately her new show lasted but a single season and she went back to guest star roles. Her appearance in this episode is well handled. Cynthia's father Jack Culpepper, was a former vaudevillian who was the first husband of the late actress-dancer Ginger Rogers.
