Trivia

Although "My Blonde-Haired Brunette" (when Laura dyes her hair blonde) was the ninth episode filmed during the first season, it was the second episode to be aired. Carl Reiner was so impressed with Mary Tyler Moore's rapid development that he wanted to showcase her in an episode as soon as possible. See more »

Goofs

Sally asks Rob if he has a single brother, and Rob says that his brother is married. However, Stacey, Rob's brother (whom we meet later in the season) is not married and indeed does develop an on-again/off-again relationship with Sally. See more »
