  • Trivia

    • In a scene near the end of the episode, Eddie says the word "detergent" very carefully - it was probably hard for Brandon to pronounce, especially with all those missing teeth!

  • Quotes

  • Notes

    • As Tom and Lynn enter Eddie's bedroom to say "good-night", a couple of lines from Harry Nilsson's song Little Cowboy are sung in the background. Later in the series, the entire song is heard.

    • Kristina Holland makes her first appearance as Tom's secretary in a very brief scene.

    • Bath towels are conveniently left on the kitchen counter, just in case of large messes...

    • Eddie learns that Lynn wears her sunglasses in the morning until she puts on her make-up - the "gloop and glup" as he calls it - and her false eyelashes.

    • Eddie tells Lynn in a real emergency, they can dial "0". (The 911 emergency system did not yet exist in the U.S.)

    • Lynn hesitates to take Eddie's temperature because she thinks she must take it rectally - until Eddie shakes his head, opens his mouth wide, and points to it.

    • Eddie has a special pair of pajamas he wears when he's ill - his "sick pajamas".
