Parley Baer, who plays Judge Shiner, also appeared in the Season Three episode "8 1/2 Months" as Dr. Rogers.
When Mrs. Stanton tries to seduce Sam, she says she's going to be "like Jane Fonda in Butterfield 8." Elizabeth Taylor starred in Butterfield 8; Jane Fonda starred in Klute.
There was no "To Be Continued" at the end of this episode as there was in the previous one.
When Sam revisits the home Laura Fuller resides in, the exterior shot is the same one used in the previous episode, right down to the extras moving around outside. It appears a stock footage clip was used for both shots.
Fran Bennett, who plays Marie, also played Ada Simpson in Season Four's "Justice".
John D'Aquino (Frank LaMotta), Laura Harrington (Connie LaMotta), Brad Silverman (Jimmy LaMotta / Mirror), and Ryan McWhorter (Corey LaMotta) all reprise their roles from the Season Two episode "Jimmy".
Carolyn Seymour, who plays Zoey, was first seen in Quantum Leap as Ms. Stoltz in Season Two's "A Portrait for Troian."
Al makes reference to Sam's leap into Lee Harvey Oswald.
In this episode it is revealed that Sam's SSN is 563-86-9801, which according to the government means that he was born in California, yet it other episodes it is clear that he was born and raised in Indiana.
Sam plays "Glory, Glory Hallelujah" in the style of Jimi Hendrix.
Several musician references are made throughout the episode, including Tim and Sam's favorites: Chuck Berry, Keith Richards, and Jimi Hendrix, as well as several musicians who succumbed to drug overdose: Jimi Hendrix (mentioned again), Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Brian Jones, and Elvis Presley.
Woodstock, the famous concert in upstate New York in 1969, is mentioned as well.
Joshua Cox (Officer Milardi) is best known for his recurring role as David Corwin on the acclaimed science fiction drama Babylon 5.
In the opening teaser, when Sam says "Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy!", his lips visibly do not match.
When Al races through the desert after Stiles, the shot of his car zooming down the highway is clearly stock footage from the pilot episode "Genesis".
When Sam stands up to knock out the sadistic orderly, the mirror image has the pants he wears cut off (or possibly rolled up) at the knee. Sam is wearing the pant legs unrolled, and when he stands up, the mirror image should show them "dangling" from below his knees, as the man he leaps into has no legs from the knee down.
Continuity: During Sam's second leap after he tells Al about learning to drive a tractor, the rifle moves from Sam's hands to over his shoulders.
Factual Mistakes: The actor they picked to play Lee Harvey Oswald looks nothing like the real Oswald! The producers should have been a little more selective in finding someone that looked more like the historical Oswald.
This episode takes place in 1957, and Al comments that in that time he was 23 years old. This would make Al born in 1934, making his "present" age 65 (as the present is referred to as 1999 at this point of the series).
This episode suggests that Project Quantum Leap would still exist without Al, although it would be radically different from the Quantum Leap with which we are familiar.
Such changes include Sam having a different observer (St. John), Ziggy being called "Alpha", and Tina being married to Gooshie.
When the club owner is yelling at Sam and Frankie, Mack exits the room to yell at him because he could hear him through the door.
