  • Notes (2)

    • The MacGyver single episode, "Slow Death" (episode 1-19), is a variation of this 2-part Gunsmoke episode.

    • This episode has an unusual production ending, giving the writer and director credits with six minutes yet to go. An epilogue then wraps up each of the featured players' story lines, with the name of the actor and character appearing on screen below the face of that person's final scene, i.e. "Tim Considine as Scott Coleman." Then after the final shot, we see the name of the producer and executive producer, which rolls into the final credits and end theme song (short version). No actors credits, including the regulars, are given during the final credits roll.
