    • When Floyd enters the courthouse near the beginning of this episode we hear the courthouse door open and footsteps as Barney fixes himself a cup of coffee in the back room. By the time he comes into the front office, Floyd is already seated. This was a often used method of working around Floyd's inability to walk. Howard McNear suffered a stroke in season two and after returning a year or so later and he was almost completely unable to walk or move much at all. His condition would deteriorate as the series progressed and McNear would eventually leave the show for a second time at the end of season seven. Howard McNear would pass away less than two years later.

    • Near the end of the episode, we see a calendar for February on the wall of Floyd's barbershop showing the 29 days of leap year for 1960 though the episode was done in 1964, also a leap year.
