Trivia

During the "Herring War" story that Rose tells, Rue and Bea break character as the scene got so out of hand that they were going to cut the scene from the episode entirely, but they kept it in the episode to show just how good the comedy in the show could be. See more »

The only problem with this episode was the boy at the supermarket. He needed some serious acting lessons. LOL.
