In the tag scene, Rob brings home a turtle on which Maria painted Rob's, Laura's and Richie's faces. It faded out with a close-up of the turtle and Rob saying "as long as this turtle lives, we'll be immortal". This was a last-minute edit as the original line was "we look just like the Kennedys". John F. Kennedy was still alive when this was filmed, but not yet aired. It was still being prepared for broadcast when the president was assassinated, so broadcast was delayed a few weeks, and the line about the turtle's longevity was inserted.
Diiiick Vaaaan Dyke is Robert Petrie
Who comes home
And accidentally trips over that thing
But sometimes he doesn't do that
They changed it
He skirts around it with a nifty step
And there's yet another version
Then ironically stumbles on the rug
Then Rob and Sally and Buddy shake hands
And the episode title comes up (obscuring Richie)
And you'll notice Rob shakes hands with Buddy again.
