There are several episodes of Family Ties that are made up mostly of flashbacks to earlier episodes. Justine Bateman was once on Saturday Night Live and had some interesting things to say about flashback episodes (click here) and they did a little spoof of flashbacks, called "Family Ties - If These Old Walls Could Talk" (available on Hulu).
The flashback episodes:
- "Diary of a Young Girl" - Jennifer writes in her diary about things that have happened in the past (but apparently not from earlier episodes).
- "Remembrances of Things Past" - No flashbacks to earlier episodes, but to Rob and Steven as boys.
- "A Word to the Wise" - Telling stories to Ellen.
- "My Back Pages" - No flashbacks to earlier episodes, but to Steven, Elyse, and Matt at Berkeley.
- "Battle of the Sexes" - Telling stories to Andy.
- "The American Family" - Telling stories to Lauren.
- "Return of the Native" - Telling stories to Cousin June.
