      • Uncle Charley bristles at the end of the episode by noting that on his anniversary (of joining the family) they usually have a celebration and a cake -- but not this time!

      • One of the questions I recently asked Dawn Lyn was if there was any scene she remembered that she simply did not want to do? She responded with a memory taken from this episode: "I have always loved to read, even as a child. As a result I am pretty good at spelling. I remember one scene where Dodie accepts a special delivery
        package for Katie, they wanted me to mispronounce 'delivery' as the word 'deliberate' like I couldn't read it. I felt stupid doing that but didn't refuse to do it".

      • There is a blatant continuity error in this episode. We learn that Barbara's birthday is Saturday; Polly's is the next day, Sunday. Steve's secretary Janet picks out the present for her boss as he is too busy at work. When Steve eventually gets home and is thanked for his kindness, he tries to ring his secretary for confirmation on what she actually purchased. He speaks to another secretary who prompts his memory that Janet was going up to Yosemite for the weekend. Strange then that later in the episode, Barbara rings Steve at the office on Saturday (her birthday) and guess who answers? Janet the Secretary!
