    • (after the culprit is nabbed) Chief Clifford: This is the right man, eh? McCloud: Well, that depends, Chief, on who's askin' the question.

    • (Sgt. Broadhust is ordered by Chief Clifford to stick close to McCloud) McCloud: Care t' make a deal? Sgt. Broadhust: Oh, no, none of your deals, and don't try to corrupt me. McCloud: Shoot, Joe, you're s' far gone now, there's nothin' left t' corrupt.

    • Additional Credits: Based on Characters Created by: HERMAN MILLER Titles & Optical Effects: UNIVERSAL TITLE

    • Iris McKensie is so spelled in the opening credits.

    • Chief Clifford is addressed as Lieutenant by McCloud (in later episodes, he is a captain). The name on his door is Peter B. Clifford, not the erroneous J. sometimes and perhaps humorously seen on his deskplate.

    • Ringo Montana, the TV Western star McCloud is charged with protecting at the end of the episode, is played by Doug McClure of The Virginian in a disguised and unbilled cameo.
