    • TRIVIA (5)

    • QUOTES (6)

    • NOTES (3)

      • This is basically the last episode where Chipper appears, although he can be (very) briefly seen in the episode "Wild Journey."

      • Jonathan Harris of course played the role of Dr. Smith on Lost in Space. He seems to enjoy playing the person here to offer Fitzhugh an escape, just as many weird aliens offered Smith the chance to return home if he betrayed the others on LiS. The fact that he claims Alpha Centauri is on his route may also be a nod to that series: that was the Robinson's original destination in that show, too.

      • In what is either a nice continuity nod or a example of el-cheapo budgeting, the music that the senator turns on to block the Piper's music is Biff's trumpet solo from the episode "Giants and All That Jazz." Apparently his music did make it big.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Fitzhugh: A wondrous portal opened wide, as if a cavern was suddenly hollowed...
        Kurt Kasznar quotes extensively and with great relish from Robert Browning's "The Pied Piper of Hamelin," a fairly famous literary work.
