In this episode, Number Six is depicted as owning a phonograph and the Village store sells records, indicating that the Village residents can choose whether to listen to music or not, and what music to listen to. In previous episodes, all the rooms in the Village were provided with black radios that broadcast music and announcements to the residents, and they had no outside controls so they could not be shut off.
