      • 99: Max. Hannibal Day wrote the script.
        Max: He did? I just read it, it's terrible.
        99: Max, he's a murderer.
        Max: Oh. Well, I knew he wasn't a writer.

      • (The Chief, 99 and Larrabee are trying to break a KAOS code.)

        Larrabee: It's too bad that's not a crossword. I'm good at those.
        Chief: You are, huh? What's a six letter word meaning a boarded up house?
        Larrabee: Shut up?
        Chief: Please.

      • Chief: well, it's almost 10:30. Max, do you have a radio?
        Max: Oh, you don't need a radio, Chief. I can tell you what time it is. (checks his watch) It's almost 10:30.

      • Day: We still have those Gaylord Carter records...

        Gaylord Carter (1905-2000) was an American musician best known for his compostions for the organ. Starting his career as a silent movie accompanist he composed many film scores that were added to modern silent movies releases.

      • Hannibal Day
        The character of Hannibal Day is based on the personality, mannerisms and dressing style of Orson Welles who, although better known today as a movie actor and director, initially achieved fame as a producer, writer, director and actor in radio drama.

      • Day: And this is my former secretary Helen Trent...

        Hannibal Day accidentally calls 99 by the name of the protagonist of one of American radio's longest running and most beloved soap operas. The Romance of Helen Trent ran on CBS from 1933 to 1960 and followed the adventures of lovelorn dress maker who eventually gains success as a Hollywood costume designer.

      • Rodger Hammerstein
        The character takes his name from the celebrated creators of Broadway musicals Rodgers and Hammerstein. Richard Rogers (1902-1979) and Oscar Hammerstein II (1895-1960) wrote such classic musicals as Oklahoma, Carousel, South Pacific, The King and I and The Sound of Music.

      • Episode Title: Moonlighting Becomes You
        The title is a pun based on the 1942 song "Moonlight Becomes You" (Music by Jimmy Van Heusen, Lyrics by Johnny Burke). The title was later recycled as the title of a novel by Mary Higgins Clarke, which in turn was made into a 1998 movie.
