This episode begins differently than any other episode of 'Amen.' There is a prologue scene in which Jackee's character is introduced when she goes to Ernie's law office to seek legal representation. After he agrees to take her case, the opening credits and theme song begin. Then, when the first scene of act one begins, the title of the episode appears.
Jackee Harry could also be seen on '227' the night this episode aired.
John Witherspoon and Anna Maria Horsford would later star in 'The Wayans Bros.' and in the film 'Friday.'
Ray Combs would later become the host of the game show 'Family Feud.'
Jester Hairston does not appear in this episode.
The episode title refers to a gangster comedy movie of the same name starring Edward G. Robinson.
