    • Jack Gaffney: Ghost of John Hinckley, is that it? Shoots the President of the United States and gets off?
      John Hinckley was a mentally disturbed man who attempted to assassinate U.S. President Ronald Reagan in 1981 in an attempt to impress actress Jodie Foster. He was found not guilty by reason of insanity and remains institutionalized to this day.

    • Mike Logan: It's his John Lennon theory.
      Singer/songwriter and former Beatles guitarist John Lennon was shot to death in New York City on December 8, 1980. The killer, Mark David Chapman, was severely disturbed and had a bizarre obsession with Lennon. He's currently serving a life sentence. When VH1 did a program about The 100 Most Shocking Moments in Rock 'n' Roll, the murder of John Lennon ranked Number One.

    • This episode appears to be ripped from the headlines of the Rebecca Schaeffer case. Rebecca Schaeffer was the beautiful and talented co-star of My Sister Sam, but was tragically shot and killed by Robert Bardo, who had been stalking her. This episode may also have been ripped from the headlines of the Theresa Saldana assault (she was stabbed by an obsessed fan at home), or the stalking of soap actress Andrea Evans (who took a nine-year hiatus from acting because of threats received from a stalker).
