The second song sung by Randy is "This Nearly Was Mine" from South Pacific.
The story line for this episode was basically a reworking of the pilot for Carl Reiner's original show, 'Head of the Family', starring Reiner as Rob Petrie. The show was rejected by the networks, and later reworked into the DVD show.
This flashback episode depicts Rob and a 9-months pregnant Laura living in Willettown, New York, in their rented house before they moved to New Rochelle at 148 Bonny Meadow Road . However, in the episode "Your Home Sweet Home is My Home", Rob & Laura purchase the house at 148 Bonny Meadow Road when she is just 2 months pregnant! Wouldn't they be living there when she has the baby? (This is again verified in the episode where Rob is laid off and comes home to a pregnant Laura who is "not yet showing"... and she is laying out brown paper on the empty living room floor to signify where their new furniture will be placed once it arrives in their new home!) And they thought nobody would notice... I noticed!
Like Rob Petrie, writer/producer Carl Reiner was stationed at Camp Crowder while serving in the Army.
