  • Trivia

    • Jethro says how the girls in the secretarial pool of the Commerce Bank are very pretty. But in some episodes before this, the secretaries of the bank are described as either plain or ugly. They don't measure up to the girls of the bank in this season.

    • For some reason, Jethro couldn't get into the mansion. But Jed was able to - by going through the back door. Why didn't Jethro just walk around the house and enter from the entrance in the kitchen to get in?
