When visiting houses away from Gold Hill, a number of scenes were the same "house" with and without other things such as green grass, picket fence, etc. This house was built in a polygon shape, with different looks on each side. The house that Ms. Hansen is renting in THE HEIR APPARENT is the exact same side that Ruby Dobbins lives in, when Amos Perry visits her, in GRADUATION. The only difference is the white picket fence and trellis have been removed THE HEIR APPARENT. Another side of the house was used in the episodes EIGHTY-EIGHT KEYS TO HAPPINESS and THE SPY as Mr. Rodman's mother's house. See more
When Amos is taking his final math exam, there are 4 math problems in 4 columns, each column adding three numbers together. When he adds the second column (641+541+231) he comes up with "5, 9, 12" or 1295 - but the correct answer is 1395. When he adds the 4th column of numbers, he adds verbally correct that it is 1131, but writes 1031. See more
