  • Trivia

    • Why the kids act as if this is the house they grew up in? In the last episode of the original series, the Seavers moved to Washington. The only one of the kids that should be emotionally attached is Chrissy, since she was only five when the series ended. Mike, Carol, and Ben were already grown by that time.

    • No, at the end of the last movie Carol got married and Ben is seen with a girlfriend, but nothing was said or done to insinuate that Ben and this girl got married.

  • Quotes

    • *Mikes cell phone rings to the tune of the theme song*
      Carol: That's really annoying.

    • Mike: Here, honey, I want to give you this. It was my favorite jacket growing up.
      Michelle: I don't want the jacket, Dad. C'mon, it's not like Leonardo DiCaprio wore it once.

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Michelle (Mike's Daughter): "It's not like Leonardo DiCaprio wore it"
      Leo DiCaprio got his start on "Growing Pains" as an orphan, Luke, who lives with the Seavers. He did, in fact, wear the jacket.
