After getting in a bar fight at his bachelor party, Rick ends up with a butterfly bandage over his left eye, but in the close up shots of Rick during the wedding scenes, the bandage is gone, then re-appears on wide shots.
The spelling of the last name of Lance LeGault's character in the onscreen credits ("Green") differs from the spelling on his name badge ("Greene").
When Magnum and Susan are trapped in the warehouse, when Magnum becomes frustrated and tries to force down the door, watch carefully to see the door move very slightly.
In the final scene, we see Laura's gravestone in New York City, but there are palm trees visible in the background.
This episode contradicts Magnum's age. In previous episodes (such as the fourth season's "Letter To A Duchess", originally broadcast in November 1983), he was said to be 38 years old, which means that here he should have been at least 41 years old. Dates elsewhere in the series suggest that he should be at least 43 in this episode.
Rick is an orphan. At the beginning of this story, there is a recount of the day of his parents' funeral, and of how Ice Pick came to look over him from a young age. Rick's younger sister Wendy, then eight years old, is briefly seen as well (but the role is uncredited and the actress has no dialogue).
When Magnum and Carol are sitting in the Ferrari, as they wait to tail Judge Kearns from his house, in the overhead shot from behind the Ferrari, Magnum is seen be running his hand through his hair, and Carol with her hands by her side. Yet on the following shot, side on, Magnum has both hands holding the newspaper, while Carol has one hand holding onto the hat she is wearing.
In the scene where Rick and Magnum tell Ice Pick of their concerns about Grace, in close-ups, Ice Pick leans forward onto his desk; yet in the long shots, he is sitting back.
Rick mentioned in season four's "Luther Gillis: File #521" that he and T.C. have no children, yet here T.C. suddenly has children.
On the closing credits, the episode's additonal cast and their characters are listed all in lower case, but on Bill Couch's credit as Nick Sutherland, the 'S' in Sutherland is in uppercase.
When this episode was originally aired it had a hanging ending that was concluded in the Murder, She Wrote episode "Magnum on Ice" which aired later in the evening. The original episode ended with Magnum being arrested by the police for seemingly murdering Paul Mayfield and the words "To Be Continued" flashed across the screen.
When the episode aired in syndication the ending was reedited with new footage. A scene between Magnum and Jessica that provided a link to the later Murder, She Wrote episode was cut. The gun fight between Magnum and Mayfield was re-edited so that Magnum is defending himself from Mayfield and the police never arrive. Then there is a completely new scene between Magnum and Higgins in the Guest House. The new scene quickly ties up all the loose ends, including what happened to Rick and T.C. (which is never explained in the original episode). The syndicated episode ends with Magnum lying down on his couch reading one of Jessica's books titled The Umbrella Murders.
When Higgins challenged Magnum as to who the man that claims to be Robin Masters is, Magnum suspects that Higgins hired, "...some little guy with a voice like Orson Welles," an in-joke to the series as the voice of Robin Masters was provided by Orson Welles.
As Magnum looks out of the top of the lift, there is a noticeable change in film quality on the shot of the rat.
The name of Lance LeGault's character is once again misspelled in the on-screen credits as Buck Green. His name badge clearly spells out his last name as Greene.
The Ripper has newspaper cuttings of some of Magnum's previous exploits. These include: 'Thomas Magnum Honored by Cat Fans' – harking back to the sixth season's "Photo Play", where Magnum received a pet lover's award after saving a cat from the tidal pool 'Clever Canine Leads Private Eye to Casebreaking Clue', which wasn't an actual episode, though we do see a shot of Magnum following the supposedly smart dog 'Local P.I. Nabs Suspect After High Speed Chase' – again not from an actual episode, but footage of a supposed previous adventure of Magnum's that we see several times in this episode 'Magnum and Kobata Lead King Kamehameha Club To Senior Swim Finals' – an event that we hear more about in this episode 'Local Investigator Solves Psychic's Murder Riddle' – the fourth season episode "Fragments". After the Ripper taunts him about leaving Philippe for dead in Vietnam, Magnum experiences flashbacks to his confrontation with the character, otherwise known as "La Bull", in the Pilot.
Maggie appears with her hair down when she comes to the guest house to help Magnum with his taxes. It is only one of a few episodes in which we see Maggie out of uniform.
Don Luis Mongueo is the third (and final) of Higgins' unusual half-brothers to be introduced. The first was Elmo Ziller in "The Elmo Ziller Story" and the second Father Paddy McGuiness in "Faith and Begorrah". There's also another sibling though never seen but mentioned, Su Ling.
Ice Pick's real name is Francis Hofstedder.
Despite visual clues in previous episodes, this is the first time Magnum actually states that he was a Navy SEAL.
When Magnum is talking to Stephen Parker at the Koho Bar, T.C.'s van drives past in one of the close up shots of Parker.
