Keith's middle name is Douglas.
There is a blooper in this episode. At the dinner table, Chris's plate appears, disappears and then reappears again.
This is the first of five appearances that Bruce Kimmel makes as Laurie's boyfriend, but they all had different names.
Bruce had this to say: "The Partridge Family – the best, they really were like a family and they treated me as one of them. My final show, the one on the cruise ship, was so much fun and we all had the best time. A little known fact is that Susan Dey and I went out for a short time."
Chris and Tracy approach Keith
Keith: Hi kids.
Chris: We need your advice.
Keith: Sure. What can I help you with?
Tracy: Career counseling.
Keith: Career counseling?
Chris: Well, we've decided what we wanna be, but everybody says we can't.
Keith: Sure you can.
Chris: Everybody says you have to be born in the right kind of family.
Keith: That's ridiculous. It doesn't make any difference what kind of family you come from in this country. You can be anything you wanna be. Now, what is it you want to be when you grow up?
song: "Summer Days" from the album "Sound Magazine"
This is one of the few times since the first episode that Shirley's being a widow is mentioned. Also, the name of the kids' father was never mentioned throughout the run of the show.
