The senior girl Greg hits on in this episode is actress Julie Cobb, daughter of famous actor Lee J. Cobb. Generally a "bit" actress, she went on to regular roles in "The D.A." and "Charles in Charge". She was also married to two famous actors: Victor French, of "Little House on the Prairie" and "Highway to Heaven" fame, and James Cromwell, who played Archie Bunker's friend Stretch Cunningham on "All in the Family", and was later an Academy Award nominee for "L.A. Confidential". Cole and Cromwell seperated in 2006.
In this episode Carol suggests that Greg could use the attic as a bedroom. Mike says "that would be great if Greg were two and a half feet tall." In the episode "A Room At The Top" Greg moves into the attic, which is much bigger.
Apparently Mike and Carol changed the kid's doctors.
While talking on the phone with Mike, Carol talks low but her voice sounds clear. She just had surgery on her tonsils, shouldn't her voice sound raspy?
In The Not So Ugly Duckling, the Brady's phone number is disclosed as 762-0799. But when Mike calls Carol on a dial phone, the next-to-last number is dialed from somewhere near the middle (4, 5 or 6) of the phone dial.
Just how much heavy-lifting did the Brady's expect Alice to do? In this episode while Carol & Cindy are recooping in bed, Alice mentions she's "going to the market" and would Carol like her to pick anything up? Carol writes her out a list. But in other episodes Carol always had to take Alice to the store since she didn't drive! Was Alice expected to lug groceries for 8 people home on the bus?!
In this episode we find out that Bobby had a awful singing voice but he was later included in the Brady Kids singing group the Brady Six
When Jan first puts on the wig in the bathroom, you can see some of Jan's hair. Then when Marcia and Cindy come into the bathroom the wig is on perfect. You don't see any of Jan's hair.
The pack of cigarettes that falls out of Greg's jacket pocket was labeled "Valiant Tobacco," which is also the name of the fictitious tobacco company at the center of a 1971, Norman Lear-directed movie, Cold Turkey.
Barry Williams was a smoker in real life. He started when he was 12, smoked all the way to the show, but quit smoking in 1984.
Greg botches the scientific name of the house mouse a bit. He calls it a Muridae Mus musculus (he pronounces it Mur-i-day muss muss-cue-luss). Actually, its just a Mus musculus, Muridae is the entire family of rodents that includes rats and mice with naked tails.
When Jan is looking out of her window at the boys in the car-port carrying in the mouse, her bedroom window is on the other side of the house.
In the opening scene, after breaking Carol's favorite vase, Bobby says, "She always says 'don't play ball in the house!'" Yet we, the viewers never actually see or hear Carol say this.
When Greg and Peter go in the kitchen to put the flowers in the vase, to be safe, why not just pretend to put water in the vase with the flowers? More than likely, Mike and Carol would not have looked inside the non-transparent vase to check!
Bobby is laying on Greg's bed while recuperating from his sprained ankle, instead of the bottom bunk where he always slept.
This is the only time Bobby's pet parakeet is seen.
Look closely as Bobby is watching Alice on the trampoline. Clearly it is a stand in wearing a maid's outfit, not really Ann B Davis.
Carol calls Peter, 'Chris' in the trampoline scene as well
Greg calls Jan "Eve" (her real name) in the trampoline scene.
After Carol and Alice get home from the store, and Mike comes home and answers the phone, he tells Alice that the phone call is from The Ever Pressed Fabric Company. She picks up the phone in the kitchen and gets all excited wondering what the prize is, and guesses on what the prize might be. Carol says, "Why don't you ask the man on the phone?" Now how does she know that it was a man on the phone, when she didn't answer the phone in the first place. Mike did. So for all we know, it could've been a woman on the phone.
