The past comes back to haunt the residents (of Cicely) when Maurice works himself into a minor heart attack while over-fretting his age. Maggie relives a childhood fantasy, and Joel traces the history of Cicely to long-forgotten Jewish predecessor.

While Maurice is watching footage of his Mercury launch, the announcer mentions that he had trained for six years and would fly 15 orbits. That means his flight would have taken place some time in 1964, at least six months after Gordon Cooper's last historic Mercury flight (but presumable before the April first Gemini flight). It also means his flight would be 7 orbits fewer than Cooper's flight. See more
According to the voiceover on the Mercury launch Minnifield watches, he had trained six years for the mission, but the Mercury astronauts were selected in 1959 (and previously Minnifield had stated he wasn't part of the original group) and the last Mercury flight occurred in 1963 (with a Minnifield flight having to occur in late 1962 or early 1963), which is four years maximum for training.
