** The impression the producers initially wanted to avoid when hiring an actress to play Maggie [=McKinney=], the woman that Mr. Drummond would eventually marry. (Conrad Bain was born in 1923, seven years prior to his character, Philip Drummond; the initial leading contender to play Maggie, Mary Ann Mobley, was born in 1939.) However, the first Maggie Dixie Carter was also born in 1939, and when she was let go at the end of the 1984-1985 season, Mobley was given a second look and eventually hired. [[note]]She appeared in about half of the Season 8 episodes.[[/note]]

* ProductDisplacement: Look closely whenever Arnold is reading a comic book. Sometimes the book's cover will be covered in stickers to avoid showing the title.

* FosterKid: Averted with Arnold and Willis, which Willis points out to both Sam and a foster kid named Kurt in one of the final episodes of the series. Kurt had never had a stable family, always having to leave after a year, and was living in a group home at the time of the events of this episode. Willis explains that had Mr. Drummond not taken him and Arnold in and adopted them, this would have likely been their fate.
