A.J. uses the alias of 'Wickersham' while questioning Joey Marcotte.
Rick leaves his Simon & Simon (Confidential Investigations, Reasonable Rates) business card on Christy's windshield which includes his full name, Richard Simon, and phone number, (714) 555-2895, in the text on the front, and a hand-written message on the back stating his address as 4200 Casa Bonita, San Diego, Slip 18.
This episode featured a different opening sequence than the first episode of the series, which included scenes of the brothers sitting on a park bench looking through binoculars.
In syndicated broadcasts of this episode, whenever a closeup of the Simon & Simon business card is shown, the phone number is blurred out. This is because the episode predates Ma Bell's setting aside the 555 prefix as unused. The 555 prefix is not assigned to any private customers in any area code so that phone numbers mentioned in a movie or TV episode will not inadvertently generate annoying calls. Currently, the only legitimate number is 555-1212, which connects to directory assistance in any US or Canadian area code.
