    • (Willie wears a jacket containing mini-computer) Cinnamon: Well, it looks like he has a few extra muscles, if that's possible.

    • Kostas: I admire your choice of game, madame. Cinnamon: It's baccarat, isn't it? Kostas: Um-hmm. Cinnamon: I've never played it, I just thought the most interesting people were at this table. Kostas: If it were not true before, it certainly is now.

    • Kostas: Beauty, my dear. It is the one temptation I can never resist. Cinnamon: So I've heard, Your Highness. Your exploits with women are legend. Kostas: It is because I have never met a beautiful woman that I did not want to know better.

    • Andre: May I join you? Cinnamon: Oh, not now, darling, we're telling secrets. Why don't you go back to the bar? Andre: Well, I don't know anyone at the bar. Cinnamon: Then go upstairs and take a nap. Mommy will be up to tuck you in later.

    • Rollin: And don't forget, when you start winning big, they'll try to stop you. So win as much as you can as fast as you can. Andre: I understand. Wish us luck. Rollin: I wish us skill.

    Notes (2)

    • On July 28, 1966, during filming of inserts of the gaming tables for this episode, Bruce Geller struck a match in front of a black backdrop... literally sparking the beginning of one of the most famous title sequences in television series history.

    • Although he appears as usual to receive the mission briefing, choose the team, and instruct them, Briggs does not go on the mission or appear in the remainder of the episode.

    Trivia (2)

    • As Kostas and Cinnamon have a drink at a small table, a shot of Rollin walking is shown reversed, with his hair parted on the right side, not the left as in the rest of the episode.

    • In the apartment scene, Andre is shown placing chips on the number 17 to test the computer device. Parts of this shot are repeated twice in the actual casino as players made their bets.
