  • Trivia

    • In this episode, Jack Klugman guest stars as Dr. Leo Gelber, an M.E. of 45 years. Mr. Klugman was the star of "Quincy, M.E", which was the first forensic science show. Quincy often solved murders, like Jordan. Unlike Jordan, he had many, brief love interests. The series ran from 1976 through 1983. Note: Mr. Klugman's voice is rough due to his bout with throat cancer.
