  • Trivia

    • Trivia: Since Kolchak revealed in "The Spanish Moss Murders" that his greatest fear is dentists, it's ironic that Bella Sarkof picks a dental assistant as Kolchak's ideal mate.

    • Why didn't the police just identify the bodies by their fingerprints? Or maybe they did and hushed it up...

  • Quotes

    • Carl: (opening narration) Nowhere in man's history does he display more tenacity, more perseverance, than in his search for eternal youth. Halting the relentless process of aging has been a constant dream of man's...and woman's. Eternal youth - is it really a dream, or is it possible that somewhere someone found the secret? The following experience gave me a new attitude on the whole subject of youth and aging.

    • Bella: (running a dating service) Umm, is there something you wanted to tell me?
      Carl: Uh...
      Bella: Something you're ashamed of?
      Carl: You see, I'm a newspaper reporter.
      Bella: Oh, well, that's not so bad. I'll find you a girl anyway.

    • Orkin: I don't accept other people's judgments. I make my own evaluations.
      Carl: That's a... are you sure that you work on the Chicago police department and not for some independent agency I don't know anything about?

    • Orkin: Did you take personal belongings out of the morgue?
      Carl: Oh, would I do a thing like that?
      Orkin: You robbed our Cook Country morgue?
      Carl: Well, Sergeant, you know, it isn't a shrine, it's just a morgue.

    • Carl: But--but I thought we were going to work in concert together.
      Orkin: Concert. When I start waving my baton, it'll be over your head.

    • Manager: She's probably been right here in the building, another apartment.
      Carl: For two whole days?
      Manager: Guess you haven't been single for a few years.
      Carl: I was never that single.

    • Carl: It seemed to me that such mysterious origins warranted what we in the press call "the midnight interview." (breaks in)

  • Notes

    • This is Ruth McDevitt's last appearance as Miss Emily as well.

    • This is Jack Grinnage's last appearance as Ron Updyke - according to Mr. Grinnage he was approached to do a guest appearance on another series and by this time word was out that Kolchak was being cancelled.

    • This is John Fiedler's last appearance of three as Gordy the Ghoul. This means this episode is tied with "They Have Been..." for most main/recurring characters in one episode - Carole Ann Susi doesn't appear here but Ruth McDevitt didn't appear in that episode.
