That has got to be the dumbest dog in the history of dogdom
—Dylan to Brandon


  • Brenda's got a history of not handling pets very well, including Ruby, Bruno and Mr. Pepper
  • Brenda names the dog Wally
  • David shows interest in adopting Wally so he can ask Brenda to set him up with Kelly
  • Nat volunteers as a baseball coach
  • Nat has a sister
  • Jim and Nat meet for the first time on the baseball field


  • The episode was written in one weekend (the first and only without an outline while Charles Rosin was with the show) because the network passed on a planned story about Brandon meeting a homeless veteran
  • The episode is the first on the show to be filmed in Beverly Hills, specifically in Roxbury Park, also the setting for a pivotal moment on the show[1]
