  • Later revealed in Season 8, Red learned from this mistake and kept a stash of gifts hidden in the basement for whenever he forgot Kitty's birthday or Valentine's Day.
  • Kitty's birthday would have been Thursday October 13, 1977. This is figured out due to the fact that Red said it was the 13th and they were watching "The Waltons", then "CHiPs", both broadcast on a Thursday night. The only Thursday night that fell on the 13th in 1977 after CHiPs debuted date on Sept. 15th would have been October 13th. Also to note: The CHiPs episode that night was episode #4 "Moving Violation"; The Waltons was episode 124 "The Warrior".
  • As revealed by the introduction of this episode on the Season 3 DVD, Debra Jo Rupp came up with the idea for the episode and submitted it to the writers. She also mentioned that due to their characters' actions in the episode, the audience in attendance for the filming of this episode became hostile towards Topher Grace and Kurtwood Smith.
  • Tanya Roberts and Don Stark are absent from the main cast in this episode.
