At one point, Lisa Bonet slips and says, "Paula! I want you to meet Olivia's mother."
No, she says "This is Paula. This is Olivia's mother."
Maybe she had just enough eggs to make the eggnog, but not the cornbread...
Clair pitches a huge fit about needing nutmeg for eggnog, then mentions they need eggs for cornbread. Has she forgotten that eggs are needed to make eggnog, too? That's why it's called EGG nog! How big a batch of cornbread is she making if she needs the entire dozen eggs to do so, which is the way she's making it sound? I use maybe one or two when I mix a box of cornbread mix together, and that usually makes a pan of 12-16 slices.
When Cliff returns from the store for about the fourth time and the eggs and tomatoes fall out of the soggy wet bag onto the floor, why aren't the eggs in a carton? The bottom of the bag drops out, so the carton can't be in the bag.
Early in the episode, a news report is heard (off screen) about the spores. The report is read by longtime NBC News anchor/reporter John Palmer.
In syndication, the song that the pregnant men dance to (following the commercial break) is different than in the original broadcasts.
How come they never show what Elvin gave birth to?
When Jeffrey gives his long speech about giving birth, he says he had a "tiny creature," so why did all the other men give birth to inanimate objects (sailboat, car, giant hoagie sandwich)?
When Russell explains why he was the only one who didn't get pregnant, he made up some excuse about the spores not getting to New Jersey. Wouldn't it make more sense to say Grandma Anna couldn't get him pregnant because she's menopausal? They're in their seventies after all.
Obviously a plot device so Denise would stay in New York, the "not getting Naval housing" was a bit contrived. If there really were no quarters available on the Newport Naval Base, the Navy would have given Martin and Denise an adequate housing allowance so they could live off-base in an adjacent city in Rhode Island.
Rudy and Vanessa are preparing to go to the mall and ask Olivia if she wants to come. She says yes but changes her mind when Cliff comes home from the hospital and she decides to stay with him. What I want to know is who was going to look after Olivia if Rudy and Vanessa didn't ask her to go to the mall. They MUST have been in charge of her because they said no one else was going to be home and Cliff could relax in peace.
Not exactly a goof, but when Martin explains to Cliff that he, Denise, and Olivia will have to live there another 6 months, he says, "But I insist on paying you full rent," which Cliff refuses. We know Martin is bluffing, because if he were really willing and able to pay full rent, he'd get his family an apartment of their own instead of continuing to impose on Cliff.
Denise states that Olivia is four years old, but in the episode The Birthday Party, it is said that Olivia is turning four.
Olivia's voice sounds unusually high-pitched in this episode.
Susan Hemmings looked real sober when she was escorting the girls out of her house, but her mother said that she was drunk, too.
When Denise is trying to get Vanessa upstairs without their parents noticing, why didn't they go up the back stairs instead of going through the dining room and up the front stairs where they risk being seen by Clair? In addition, Vanessa put her hands over her mouth, implying she was going to throw up, as she started up the stairs, so why didn't she head straight for the bathroom rather than go in her own bedroom and get sick on the bed? Most people who think they're going to vomit head for the nearest toilet.
Clair says she's seen Theo's friends sneak out of a room while Cliff rambles, something which took place (albeit without Clair) at the end of the season five episode, What He Did for Love.
In an earlier episode, Cliff and Clair want to take care of the kids for a while so Elvin and Sondra can go out by themselves. Sondra agrees, but Elvin doesn't want to. How come all of a sudden Sondra won't let go?
This episode is proof positive that Rudy has her own private bedroom this year, since the girls tried to go to separate bedrooms after Clair let them use the bathroom. Why does she keep saying she's never had her own room?
The music during the cake-eating sequence of the last scene is the same music (by Grover Washington) which Theo played during the Smooth Contest in "Clair's Toe" from season 2.
