    • Timothy Busfield, Polly Draper, Peter Horton and Patricia Wettig are credited but don't appear.

    • The script of this episode has been published in Prime-Time Authorship: Works About and by Three TV Dramatists by Douglas Heil (Syracuse University Press, 2002).

    Allusions (1)

    • This episode is based on the classic Twilight Zone episode of the same name from May 6, 1960 (TZ's first season).

      In the Rod Serling script, an overworked executive falls asleep on the train and dreams that he has returned to a simpler time.

      This idea appeals to Michael, who has been under increasing pressure at DAA.
