Did You Know?


The song playing at the end of the episode is "Where Have All The Flowers Gone" and is commonly referred to as an anti-war song used during the 1960s to protest the Vietnam conflict - something that Sister Jane (Beth Fowler) was a part of. The song was released in the 1950s but it gained most of its popularity in the 60's, so Sister Jane would have been aware of the song and its anti-Vietnam connotations. See more »
