    • The closing credits of this episode feature a unique version of the show's theme tune, where the vocals in the mid-section are not present. Other than a very small clip of this version being used on the opening trailer for second season's "It's a Vial Sort of Business" (not on the DVD version, where it is re-edited), this is the only time in the entire run that this particular version is used.

    • German Title: Das Attentat

    • Cody is seen to be driving an old 19?30/40?s Ford in this episode. The producers seemed to be toying with it as transport for the three detectives (they couldn't all comfortably fit into Nick's two seater Corvette) before they eventually settled on the Jimmy Truck. Cody was seen once more with this vehicle in the series, in the following episode.
