    • Nick Toscanni: Fallon, call me when you grow up... if you ever do.

    • Alexis: I think you're sick. You're mentally ill. What you really need is a few more of those psychiatric sessions with Dr. Toscanni. That is what they were, isn't it? Krystle: You're the one who needs a psychiatrist, Alexis. Nobody could be as rotten and evil as you without being sick.

    Notes (2)

    • German episode title: "Schurkenstreiche", meaning "Knaveries".

    • There were very minor changes to the credits. The photos of Lee Bergere and James Farentino are shifted. Bregere's to the center and Farentino's to the opposite side of the screen than before.

    Trivia (1)

    • This episode features the first mention of Adam Carrington, though we're led to believe he died at birth. The fact that he was never referred to before is explained by Blake who reminds Alexis that they had promised each other never to talk about that painful time in their marriage.
