Goofs
In the first episode, outside of the front door is a little hallway leading outside. From the second episode on, the hallway was a porch.
Share this
In the Winslows' home, guests would always walk out the front door and then to the left, but in the picture that is shown as the Winslows' home, there is no walkway to the left. There are a few stairs outside that lead up to the front door, but walking to the left after exiting through the front door would only lead into a wall.

Q
What are the lyrics to the theme song?
A
It's a rare condition, this day and ageTo read any good news on the newspaper pageLove and tradition of the grand designSome people say it's even harder to findWell then there must be some magic clue inside these tearful walls'Cause all I see is a tower of dreamsReal love burstin' out of every seamAs days go byWe're gonna fill our house with happinessThe moon may cryWe're gonna smother the blues with tendernessWhen days go byThere's room for youRoom for meFor Gentle hearts an opportunityAs days go byIt's the bigger love of the family
