Nitpick: The TV anchorman announcing Paul Rudell's death states that he was 55 years old. Thus, it is unlikely that he would have a granddaughter in her 20's. Perhaps they should have made the Shelly Fabraes character his daughter instead of granddaughter.
Asked by retired disposal man Sid Nylan (who can't stand a hypocrite) if he was in the service, McCloud replies that he flew Air Force reconnaissance missions in Korea.
Chief Clifford mentions that he has a six year old daughter in this episode. This is in contrast to later episodes when the Cliffords appear for all intents and purposes to be childless.
Det. Thatcher refers to "Chief Peter J. Clifford". It appears that his name was changed in subsequent seasons.
The credits give George Lincoln for Peter Lincoln.
Those with a discerning ear might notice that Gabriel Dell does a pretty dead on vocal impersonation of Cameron Mitchell in the scenes where Ira Mastin calls Jenny on the telephone.
Nitpick: Early in the episode Touhy is referred to as a full or four star general but later on he gets a demotion to brigadier (or one-star) general.
The nameplate on Chief Clifford's desk reads PETER J. CLIFFORD.
Visible goof: When McCloud is demanding from Cantrell to know the client a file is identified with, the microphone boom is in frame for a couple of seconds.
The character played by Elisha Cook, Jr., Mr. Rafer, is listed in the credits as Mr. Diller.
