The closing narration has John-Boy mentioning Mary Ellen is married to a college professor. In truth, she married a doctor and a veterinarian through the course of the series and reunion movies.
Correction - Mary Ellen's 2nd husband Jonesy, was a professor at Boatwright University :)
This is the only episode to date that doesn't end with the exterior of the Walton house and the family members telling each other goodnight.
In this episode, Olivia tells Esther that all her children were born healthy. This will be contradicted later in the series when we find out that Jim-Bob in fact had a twin who died at birth.
Olivia serves Jody cookies in a bowl, but his close-ups show the cookies on a plate.
Ellen Corby, who plays Esther Walton, wrote the story for this episode. At the barn dance, Esther is shown dancing with a man named Fred Hansen. Hansen was Ellen's maiden name.
Jim Bob does not appear in this episode, making this the first hour not to feature all the main Walton characters.
