  • This is the second episode with a widowed mother. The first one was the Mihalik Family.
  • This episode is unique because Antoinette called for advice and help for how to raise her children alone, rather than call for help because she can't control the children's misbehavior.
  • This is the first and currently only episode where there's no disrespectful children and disrespectful parents, seeing as all the members are all well-behaved instead.
