    • German Title: Unter Mordverdacht

    • Cody's old Ford makes its final appearance in this episode. The last we see of it is as takes the detectives and Alison tumbling down the side of an embankment. It's never made clear if it survived the tumble or what became of it, but we do see Dooley driving an identical vehicle in the 2nd season episode 'The Orange Grove' (it could be assumed that Cody sold it to him).
      After this, the producers decided on the Jimmy truck as regular transport for the trio.

    • The trio's private investigation business is referred to as 'The Riptide Detective Agency' for the first time in this episode. Previously, it had been referred to as 'The Pier 56 Detective Agency'.
