Odd Facts Known by Few
- Just a minute or two into the episode is the first mention of Juanita Beasley, the new waitress at the Junction Cafe who Barney sees from time to time in later episodes.
- Sam Edwards, Margaret Kerry, and Joy Ellison played three of the four members of the Muggins family in an earlier episode, No. 11, The Christmas Story.
- In an effort to keep the Scoby's from being evicted, Barney starts the "Save the Scoby House" fund by taking money out of his holster, his sock, and his hat.
- The customer at the rummage sale who would have the "Memorable Quotes" conversation with Andy (seen below) was played by Jack Prince, who would later be cast as Rafe Hollister.
- At the rummage sale:
- Customer: Uh, how much is this?
Andy: Oh, 'bout three dollars.
Customer: What you suppose it is?
Andy: If I knew that it'd cost you five.
Customer: Sounds like a bargain.
Andy: Heh, yeah...yeah, one of these is nice to have.
Customer: I always wanted one.
