In the opening scene, Mr. Walters (Dennis Kleinsmith) is appalled by the idea of his son getting a tattoo. Betty mentions how cool a long dragon tattoo would look on young Brian. In reality, it is Dennis Kleinsmith who has a large dragon tattoo on HIS arm. This was purely coincidental, as the tattoo gag was in the script long before Kleinsmith was cast.
