    • Answering Machine: I'm the guy who hit your car in the parking lot. I don't have any insurance...I just wanted you to know how really sorry I am. If it makes you feel any better, I hurt my arm.

    Trivia (2)

    • The opening scene where Rocky is driving the semi-rig and is forced off the road is later reused in an episode of Quincy ME entitled Dead Stop (seventh season, 1981).

    • Country and Western singer Willie Nelson provides the music of Charlie Strayhorn in this episode. ‘Heartaches of a Fool’ was written by Willie Nelson, while ‘Good Hearted Woman’ was written by both Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings (who sang the theme and was the balladeer in 'The Dukes of Hazzard'.)
