The brief scenes showing Buntz decking Chief Daniels, and Buntz leaving the station at the end of the episode, are reused in the opening credits of "Beverly Hills Buntz".
Of course, the series didn't technically end here. The following television season saw Dennis Franz and Peter Jurasik keeping their characters alive, only this time they traded Chicago for Beverly Hills in the short-lived series "Beverly Hills Buntz."
Title: It Ain't Over Till It's Over.
The episode title is a memorable quote by Hall of Fame baseball player/manager Yogi Berra from 1973 when Berra was the manager of the Mets. It also appears on his plaque at Yankee Stadium.
LaRue's attempt to "ruin" the uncovering of a famed mobster's vault is a spoof of a much-publicized incident involving Geraldo Rivera and Al Capone's alleged secret stash.
