* HilariousInHindsight: The episode "Have Gun, Will Unravel" sees Steven and Elyse consider and then debate on purchasing a gun for home defense after a burglar breaks into their home, something both ex-flower children would previously find unthinkable. Nearly a decade later, Micheal Gross would go on to play GunNut CrazySurvivalist Burt Gummer in ''{{Tremors}}'', who then goes on to show a monster what happens when it breaks into the wrong goddamn rec room.
