  • Trivia

    • Star Robert Reed does not appear in this episode.

    • This is the second time Alice leaves because of how the kids feel about her. The first time was in seasons 1 episode Alice doesn't live here anymore.

    • Carol is more upset that Marcia left the stereo on than Alice is. But the stereo belongs to Alice...she won it in the contest.

      And it's difficult to believe that Peter would even contemplate lying about the broken lamp after what he went through before with the broken vase.

    • This is the only episode where Alice is a waitress.

    • Mistake: As the episode begins, Greg and Peter are arriving home and tossing bound school books around, as though they were a football. Greg is wearing a pair of brown leather dress shoes, while Peter wears white Adidas sneakers with blue stripes.

      In the next scene, Peter and Greg enter the kitchen greeting Alice.  This time, though, Greg is wearing white sneakers that look to be white Adidas with black stripes, but could be white Pony sneakers with a black Pony logo.

      As the boys move into the living room, Greg is again wearing the brown leather dress shoes from the first scene.  In all three scenes, Peter wears the same white Adidas with three blue stripes sneakers / trainers (UK).

    • Alice takes her new job at "The Golden Spoon" cafe

  • Quotes

    • Carol: (when Alice is beating around the bush about what happened to her lamp) I want to know how this happened, when this happened, who did it and why.

    • Kay: Alice, you've made the worst mistake a housekeeper can make; getting too emotionally involved with the family. And I speak from experience. When I'm working, I just do my work. Getting too attached can break your heart.

    • Marcia: We're sorry, Mom. We all want her back.
      Carol: I'm afraid "sorry" won't help. Sometimes when you push people too far, you just can't bring them back again!
