    • Hoagy Carmichael: "Captain Kirk?"
      On Mr. Baker's second meeting with Amos, he mistakenly calls him "Captain Kirk." OK, so this in itself is not a big deal; however, in this same episode there is a character named Mrs. Tribble! I should also point out that this Mrs. Tribble, as essayed by Nanette Fabray, has to be one of the SPACE-iest characters in the entire series--and that's saying a lot!

      Did Gene Roddenberry watch this episode? [RW]

      It predates "The Trouble with Tribbles" by about 3½ years. [DH]

    • :
      Molly's murder scene is very reminiscent of the opening of the shower scene in "Psycho".
      Baker's constant comments about "just Molly and me" is a reference to the lyrics in the old song "My Blue Heaven".
