Although this episode was filmed in either late 1979 or early 1980 there is a calendar on the wall of the gang's hangout that is dated 1978.
John Holland needs to change his calendar. While the calendar on the wall of Eddie Riford's print shop is already on October 1979, the calendar in Holland's office is still on September 1979.
The same footage of Willie uncovering and later reburying the plastic bag (containing the box that held the counterfeit plates) is shown again when he repeats the actions later in the episode.
The title of this episode is grammatically incorrect. It should be "For Old Times' Sake." When Willie says the title words in the episode, the closed captioning displays it correctly.
When Richard Slade asks the members of Nemesis to cast their votes on whether the captured Kimo and Truck are guilty or not, one member clearly puts a white ball (for "not guilty") in the bag - yet when he empties the bag, all the balls are black (for "guilty").
At the end of this episode, McGarrett addresses Carew as "Kimo," explaining that it's "Hawaiian for Jim" and that he had "better get used to it."
The opening shot of the evening Hawaiian skyline (while the Ross Martin credit is shown) was filmed at the same time as the skyline in the opening credits (shown briefly twice). The cloud patterns are only slightly different, meaning only a short interval of time between the two shots.
When Andy makes a citizen's arrest of the guys who kidnapped his son, he takes his bat and supposedly smashes the back right-side window with appropriate sound effects. But seconds later, when he smashes the front right-side window with his bat with the same sound effect, we see that no other window has been broken.
In this episode, Tony Alika finds an attorney who gets him released on bail. Alika had been convicted of ordering the killing of crooked real estate developer Howard Kramer in the Season 11 episode "Stringer." Later on, Alika's attorney convinces a judge to declare a mistrial in the Stringer case.
Before McGarrett books Alika, he notes that Alika took control of the Kumu (Hawaiian mafia) from Cappy Pahoa, a reference to the former mob boss featured in the Season 10 episode "A Death in the Family."
When Millicent says to McGarrett over the phone, "When Rolande flunks this test...," her lip movements do not match the words.
Toward the end of the episode, McGarrett reveals the reason he became a police officer. He tells L.A. mob kingpin Allie Francis that when he was thirteen, his father was killed at the age of 42. McGarrett's father was returning home from work when he was run down by a criminal who was fleeing after robbing a supermarket. McGarrett's mother brought up the kids on her own for the next 20 years.
This is the only episode in the entire series with the words "to be continued' displayed at the end. All the other two-parters in the series have either been shown in a two-hour broadcast or have displayed the executive producer's name [Leonard Freeman] at the end.
This is the only episode in the entire series where the episode title is written in a different font from the other credits.
When Duke finds a picture of Jill and her mother, he tells McGarrett that it was taken 15 years ago. The date on the back states June 14, 1966, which was only a little more than 12 years before this episode was filmed and broadcast.
The producers needed a business office for one scene. A crew member had seen the office of Alan Beale, the president of Blackfield Hawaii. Mr. Beale agreed to the use of the office but only if he and his administrative assistant were included in the scene.
When the detectives are investigating dentists (and there are many in Honolulu, as indicated in the dialogue), Chin Ho can be seen leaving the door of a Dr. Westman after talking with him. Moments later, Danny can be seen entering the same door, presumably to interview the same dentist. If there are so many dentists to investigate, why are Chin Ho and Danny visiting the same dentist?
Two different sets are used when Danny and Duke are looking down at the "revival" process. In a close-up they are looking through center windows above some spectators whose heads are near the windows. Immediately following the close-up, a far shot is shown where Danny and Duke are not seen, the people are different and their heads are much lower than the windows.
The characters of Millicent and Norman can be seen in the far shots, sitting behind a curve in the railing between the left and center sections but are not there in the close-up. Other people seen in the center section of the close-up are in the left section in the far shots but Duke and Danny couldn't have been looking from that window because they are looking directly down at the revival, not at an angle and because the side windows have doorways under them and these were not visible in the close-up.
The plot of this episode is very similar to that of the Margery Allingham novel Police at the Funeral.
Carol Lynley played James MacArthur's love interest in his first Disney movie, The Light in the Forest (1958).
