    • Columbo: You have to forgive me, it's not me, it's my mind, it's very slow, and I have to pin everything down.

    • Rumford: (to Columbo) We both have similar jobs. I wear a uniform. You wear...well, I suppose you could call that a uniform.

    Notes (7)

    • The episode won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Single Performance by a Supporting Actor in a Comedy or Drama Series - Patrick McGoohan.

    • 94 minutes long.

    • If George Kramer and Cadet Morgan look and sound a little alike, it's not surprising--they are father and son. Bruce and Bruno Kirby.

    • This episode was filmed at The Military College of South Carolina. Many of the Corp of Cadets appeared in the episode as extras, some with speaking parts.

    • Along with Robert Culp, William Shatner, Jack Cassidy and George Hamilton, Patrick McGoohan is one of only five actors to play more than one murderer on the series. McGoohan, at four, played the most.
