The Hudson family is having trouble with peer pressure. The daughter, Blair Hudson, decides not be friends with a guy who is not considered 'in' and her father, Richard Hudson, puts down a co-worker to fit in.

  • Certain elements of this episode copied into a far later episode, #348: “With a Little Help from My Friends”, including Blair's name as the one who gives into peer pressure, the situation of the father at work (later applied to Connie's mother), "Conformists Anonymous" which was changed to "Peer Pressure Anonymous."
  • In the opening wraparound of this episode, Dr. Dobson and Mike Trout talk about some of the negative mail they have gotten about the Family Portraits series. One letter did not like inclusion of the teen/parent arguments in the program and another thought the programs sounded like they were from the 1950s.


Mickey Barton: My name is 'Mick.' Mickey sounds kinda — you know, immature.

Richard Hudson: You are grounded, and I mean grounded! No phone, no nothing!
