    • Leeda: They're like little dolls. Maybe I could just keep one of you? Dan: Which one of us would you pick? Leeda: You. (awwwwww...)

    • Steve: Everything's copacetic down here. Kobick: What?!?

    Notes (2)

    • This episode was partially based on the true life case of Cathy Fiscus.

    • The Spindrift isn't seen in this episode.

    Trivia (3)

    • The armed father has very little trouble breaking into Inspector Kobick's office in the midst of SID Headquarters. However, this might be a ploy by Kobick to get the Earthlings to volunteer their services without his rewarding them their freedom.

    • Kobick tells the 8-10 year old boy, "I'm Inspector Kobick - you know who I am." As a high-ranking officer in what is essentially the secret police, how likely is it that Kobick is publicly known, much less to a child that age? (It's possible he is a famous J. Edgar Hoover-like figure, although there are very few indications of this otherwise.)

    • This episode raises the question of how much the Earthlings weigh. Presumably Dan and Steve weigh roughly 200 pounds each: wouldn't that be enough to set off cave-ins? The impression here is that they weigh very little.
