June 19, 1964: Jim Bunning's on the mound for the Phillies and the Pryors have just begun their annual Wildwood vacation. Roxanne isn't with them because she's still mad at a still-distressed Meg. However, her rich new friend Carol has invited her to her beach club at "the Crest." And Meg returns the favour, getting Carol and her friends into a American Bandstand (1952) beach "hop" featuring the Kinks. Meanwhile, Helen finally tells Jack about Professor Witt's advance. Back in town, J.J.'s at home---with Beth while Henry's minding the North Philly store. The neighborhood is steaming and the city pool hasn't opened yet.

In one scene, a shot of a seaside carnival shows a mural of a whale in the background. This mural is painted by marine-life artist Wyland as part of his Whaling Wall series. It is Whaling Wall #79 "Santa Monica's Marine Life" and was not painted until 1998 at the Santa Monica Pier. In one shot you can clearly see the artist's signature (behind a swing ride) and the dedication date. Additionally, the mural is of California Gray Whales, which are not indigenous to the Atlantic.
