The family tension mounts when James runs away after getting into an argument with Albert. The abandoned house that Albert and James find in the storm is the same house that Laura and Almanzo later own in Season 9. The same sets were used for both instances.

If you watch closely, at one point you will notice that Doc Baker picks up his phone to speak and yet the base is not wired to the wall.
The only wire is between the base and the earpiece.

Pierce, she lands in a pail of water, and her hair remains dry. Two shots later we see Mrs. Pierce still sitting in the bucket, only now her hair is soaked. Since she landed on her behind, her hair should not have gotten wet, and there was no time for anyone to have poured water over her head, realistically. Aging circus daredevil Gambini the Great has a hypnotic effect on the children of Walnut Grove, especially Albert and Willie.
When Gambini escapes from being tied up in the creek and is underwater for over a minute, he finally breaks the surface and walks up to the praise of the on-lookers. Actress Martha Nix plays a sweet, quiet new student named Amy in this episode. Now in this episode it is Albert who really likes her, but though she is nice to him, she is not lovestruck.

A pair of bumbling crooks kidnaps Nels and holds him for ransom. In the process, nearly everyone in Walnut Grove finds themselves on the wrong side of the criminals.

A young, overweight boy named Elmer Miles is mercilessly teased at school. However, Nancy — of all people — goes easy on him because she actually seems to like him. After hearing something like that from a student, a teacher should have at least called out to him or run after him.
Nels Oleson is usually the voice of reason throughout the series, especially in contrast to his wife. In the scene after Elmer quits school, he is having dinner with his family. However, in the next scene, when Elmer and his father are outside and the school children come to talk to Elmer, it is full daylight. These two scenes were obviously filmed at very different times. In this episode, Charles strategically makes his dinners taste horrible so the kids will complain and he can force them to cook the next night, but the plan backfires. Additionally, it is unlikely that either Caroline or Hester-Sue would have consented to work on Sundays.

Gideon has been missing for days, yet when Caroline finds him, his clothes are spotless and his hair is neatly combed. It is hard to believe that a child would stay that clean for that long while sleeping in the woods.

An expecting Laura has a tough time caring for the Wilder farm when Almanzo and Charles are away on a trip to Arizona. Laura has a heart-to-heart talk with Willie about responsibility and being a role model. The camera cuts to Laura for a moment, then switches back to Willie, whose skin is suddenly completely dry. Charles tells Almanzo that they will be making their delivery to Northern Arizona. The real-life Laura Ingalls was 45 years old by that time.
Why would Caroline need to hire a farmhand while Charles is away when her son Albert is nearing young adulthood and pre-teen James is living at home? Charles and Caroline are about to adopt James and Cassandra, but their Uncle Jed comes forward demanding custody of the Cooper children. Early in the episode, Jed talks about how he struck it rich, panning for gold.
