    • NOTES (2)

      • During this season, there was speculation that actress Teri Austin ("Jill") was going to be cast as "Sally's friend" since that character's face was never shown on-screen and Austin, who had gained popularity in the role of Jill, was still credited in the show's opening. However, according to the website, www.KnotsLanding.net, that was not the intention of the producers.

      • Actress Lar Park Lincoln originates the role of "Sally's friend" (later revealed to be Amanda) in this episode. Although Lincoln's face was not seen, her body and voice were used. Note that "Sally's friend" was originally blonde. A few episodes later, Penny Peyser took over the role of "Sally's friend" and her character became a brunette, as she explained to Gary that she dyed her hair. The following season Lincoln would return to the show to reprise her role as Eric's wife Linda while Peyser would finally be revealed as Amanda a.k.a. "Sally's friend."

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • The episode title is an allusion to Dial M for Murder, a 1954 Warner Brothers film directed by Alfred Hitchcock starring Grace Kelly and Ray Milland, based on the stage play of the same title by English playwright Frederick Knott.
