  • Trivia

    • Jesse White appears in this episode as the cantankerous Fred Boone. Although a long-time actor with over 160 credits - his first credited role was in the 1950 film classic Harvey - Jesse is perhaps best known for being the doleful, ever-idle Maytag Repairman on a series of commercials which ran from 1967-1989.
