Episode Notes
This episode's plot and title is somewhat based upon a movie called "Harold and Maude". The movie was made in the 1960's and is about the love between a teenaged boy and an old woman.

Maude's first appearance.

Nickelodeon had a strict NO-Dying policy from around 1996-2001. However, when this episode aired in USA, it was about a few months before they cancelled the "dead" rule. And, Maude died in this episode but some episodes are meant to be that way.

Maude returns in "I Spy a Witch", as a spirit.

Episode Goofs
Lois clearly states that she never drives anywhere at night without Car Companion Bob. But we see her drive many times at night without him.

Maude was in room 202 at Golden Gates Convalescent Center.

Before she goes to dinner, Courtney is modeling a top for the dinner to her friend Miranda. She specifically calls it a top, not a sweater or a coat, etc. When she arrives at Ginger's house, She is wearing the top but once the scene switches to the girls sitting in the living room, she is wearing a full length purple gown with spaghetti straps. The shirt is nowhere to be found!

Lois says to Carl, "...No candy residue, no penciled-on mustaches..." Car Companion Bob already has a mustache, and a very big one at that.
