Goofs & Errors[]

  • In this episode, Annie asks Eric if he want to adopt George, and Eric answers that they can't really afford another child, but two years later, they have twin boys, Sam and David and they don't seem to struggle too much with paying for and raising seven kids.
  • In this episode, Eric sneaks into the garage, but there is no window on the door. In the episode, "It's About George," there is a window in the door with a curtain on it. Later, in the Season 4 episode, "Loves Me, Loves Me Not", Lucy puts paper on the door to cover a window so Ruthie wouldn't peek in.
  • In this episode, Anne tells Eric, "what are you 12?" when Eric doesn't to be intimate with her because of his parents being there in the house, but she did the same thing in the pilot episode, "Anything You Want", when Eric wanted to be intimate with her when parents were visiting.
