  • Notes

    • Peter is now 15 years old.

    • Robbie Rist (cousin Oliver) first came to Sherwood Schwartz' attention when he tried out for a role on "Kelly's Kids". He didn't get the part, obviously, but he left an impression.

    • First filmed episode to feature Cousin Oliver played by Robbie Rist whereas the previous episode titled "Welcome Aboard" was the first aired episode to feature him in which he was moving in with the Bradys. This must explain why this episode was airing before the previous episode in the syndicated reruns.
