Continuing with episodes from the first half of season 2, this episode features what is now the typical sitcom pregnancy storyline. It introduced Allyn McLerie as Mr. Carlson's wife. (McLerie had been a regular on The Tony Randall Show, where Hugh Wilson was one of the producers.) The writer, Blake Hunter, was a friend of Hugh Wilson's from more or less the same background -- Southerner, former advertising man. He appears to have done a lot to make Mr. Carlson's mother a more sympathetic character than she was in the pilot.
The cold opening or "teaser" of this episode does a very skilful job of introducing a new character and providing a ton of information/exposition in about two minutes.
Music: "Still" by Lionel Ritchie, one song (near the end) that I'm not sure about, and, most importantly, "Thank Heaven For Little Girls" by Maurice Chevalier. This was replaced soon after the show went into syndication, ruining the ending of the episode. This is the original version.
