    • Beginning with this episode, for the rest of the first season, the opening theme music has been shortened slightly, since there is one fewer cast member in the sequence due to the departure of the character of Jonathan Brooks at the end of the previous episode, "An Act of Desperation."

    • It is established in Kingsfield's office that Chris does not have the financial wherewithall to be anywhere other than the Hamilton Society House. At the end of the episode she is packing to leave. It is not clear whether she is leaving law school (regretable, as she is a very bright and promising student) or whether she has been able to make other financial arrangements that would allow her to stay. CBS aired this episode on a Friday at 8:00 p.m., one week before it premiered "The Dukes of Hazzard."
