Cast and Characters Edit

Main Edit

Guest Edit

Recurring Edit

Cameo Edit

  • Crystal Jenious as Girl Student
  • Aaron Lohr as Student #1
  • Joe Mays as Mr. Nagy
  • Sky Berdahl as Student #2

Trivia Edit

  • The first episode in which Urkel's basement is seen, albeit only in a dream sequence. It would later become one of the main sets on the show.
  • The original scene where the atom bomb detonates and blows up chicago is censored in future airings and on the DVD set. This was likely due to the scenes of what the impact looked like being too gruesome.

Goofs Edit

  • Both times Rachel strums the harp, the sound is delayed. It doesn't come until she is not still touching it.

Quotes Edit

Carl: What's wrong, honey?
Laura: Science class. I'm in big trouble! I may get a B.
Carl: I got a B once. I framed it.
Laura: Dad, this is serious. I can't afford a B on my permanent record. From now on, no parties and no TV. In fact, I'm grounded.
Harriette: Laura!
Laura: Don't argue. Someday, I'll thank myself for this.

[Steve accidentally set off his A-bomb]
Urkel: Don't panic, my love! If I remember correctly, the safest place to be during a nuclear explosion is in a reinforced basement.
Laura: Not when the bomb is in the basement with you!
Urkel: Good point... PANIC!
