      • Betsy Garth has a birthday party in this episode and it is revealed she is 15 years old.

      • All of the regulars appear in this episode as do semi-regulars/recurring co-stars Molly Wood (Pippa Scott) and, until she became listed as a star later in the series, Betsy Garth (Roberta Shore).

      • This episode, and in fact all entries up to and including episode 14, do not give the title of that entry in the opening sequences. The titles are only given beginning with episode 15: "Duel at Shiloh".

      • Beginning with this episode and continuing throughout season 1, any individuals appearing in an episode considered guest stars or stars of special note are listed in the opening credits just after the series stars are shown rather than in the opening sequences of the episodes.
