Fool for Love - S4-E15

Continuity mistake: In this episode, Mallory and Skippy are talking and Mallory starts a sentence with "remember when we were 2 years old..."? This is incorrect as an earlier season had an episode in a flashback when the Keatons just moved into their house and the kids were young and Skippy meets Mallory for the first time and instantly falls for her. Both Skippy and Mallory were about 5 or 6 years old in the scene so knowing each other at 2 years old was not possible.

Show generally

Question: Does anyone know which episode it was when Steven decided to grow a beard, or why he decided to grow one? I never watched the show in order and still can't figure out why he suddenly has one in the second half of the show's run.

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: Steven Keaton (Michael Gross) did not grow the beard for an episode. He grew it between season 1 and season 2 as a character he was playing in an Off-Broadway play. When the show began taping for season 2, it was decided to have him keep it. It never was a plot point on the show.
