    • For some reason, James McEachin doesn't appear as Lt. Brock, Perry's primary police antagonist, in this episode.

    • Yaphet Kotto's best known role is that of the sinister Dr. Kananga in the James Bond flick Live and Let Die.

    • Rene Enriquez had just finished his run as Lt. Ray Calletano on Hill Street Blues when this movie was filmed.

    • Robert Guillaume is familiar to TV fans for his role as Benson DuBois on both Soap and its spin-off Benson.

    • The storyline in this one bears a pretty fair resemblance to an episode of the regular series entitled TCOT Envious Editor.
