Mike has been trying to complete drawings for a mutli-million dollar project for a national company and needs to honor a telephone appointment to set up a meeting time with Mr. Crawford, its CEO, to discuss the details and confirm the contract. With all the other phones in the house in use (by Carol, trying to talk to her gabby friend, and Alice), Mike has no choice but to use the payphone in the family room to call Mr. Crawford. Just as Mike is about to confirm the appointment, the operator cuts in, asking for more money. Mike scrambles to find a dime in his pocket but is eventually cut off. Sam comes to the rescue with another dime and Mike is able to make a new call ... but then it could be too late, anyway, because the irritated Mr. Crawford now is not sure about Mike's abilities or the stability of his firm, and is even more annoyed when he thinks Mike is so cheap he can't afford a regular landline. The client is about to hang up when Mike finally blurts out the reason the phone was in his house. The client is suddenly intrigued and agrees to meet with Mike.

* [[MyNameIsNotDurwood His Name Is Not Durwood]]: At one point, when Greg is chatting endlessly on the phone and Marcia, Peter and Jan are (im)patiently waiting their turn, Mike and Carol place an egg timer next to the phone. Carol explains that once the sand in the egg timer has emptied, "it's good-bye Charlie!" Greg explains, "It's Harvey." An irritated Mike replies, "Well, then it's good-bye, Harvey!"

* [[PhoneaholicTeenager Phoneaholic Teenagers and Kids]]: The kids' constant use of the telephone (to do little more than jabber about nothing) and running up the bills, eventually driving Mike to install a payphone. The trope is slightly renamed because 14-year-old Greg is the only teen-ager in the house. * TechnologyMarchesOn: Say it with us now ... payphones! (Today, such a script would likely be rewritten to revolve around the kids using too many minutes on their iPhones.)

* FirstAppearance: Of Sam Franklin, the owner of Sam's Butcher Shop where the Bradys get all their meat and Alice finds her boyfriend and future husband. Veteran character actor Allan Melvin took on what became one of his two signature roles (the other being Barney Hefner in ''AllInTheFamily'').

* HeyItsThatGuy: Fans of ''{{Gunsmoke}}'' might recognize Howard Culver, who played the recurring role of the Dodge City Hotel clerk Howie Uzzell. He's Mr. Crawford in this installment.
