    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • When Barney approaches Voss' limo in the garage, he has nothing in his hands. The camera cuts to a closeup of him springing the lock, and in the next shot the two cases are on the ground at his feet.

    • QUOTES (1)

      • Borodin: Sometimes, sometimes it is difficult to face the fact that six years' of hard work is for nothing.
        Turek: Yes, it must rather be like working for a promotion that you do not get.

    • NOTES (3)

      • No reference is also made to the departing Rollin Hand and Cinnamon Carter. The couple left the show for various contractual reasons. At the time of this episode the situation had not been entirely resolved. Meredyth is a stand in as the female agent for what would presumably have been Cinnamon's role in this episode.

      • First episode in air-order to use Leonard Nimoy as Paris. As was almost always the case, no formal introduction of the character is given. He simply appears and works from the team as if he'd always been with them.

      • Note the use of the Desilu studio set, particularly the water tower. The latter is carefully filmed so you don't see the side with the Desilu logo on it.
