  • NOTES (3)

    • Due to his unforgettable performance as AIDS victim Brett Johnston, Kyle Secor was given a starring role on Tom Fontana's NBC cop drama, "Homicide".

      Dennis Patrick just happened to appear on classic ABC daytime soap "Dark Shadows" -- and was one of the only actors who did NOT play a member of the Collins family.

    • This is Ed Flanders' last appearance as a regular. He would make two guest appearances later in the season.

    • The name of the episode is a clever pun refering to what Dr. Westphall does to Dr. Gideon at the end of the episode.

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • A Moon For The Misbegotten
      The episode title takes its inspiration from Eugene O'Neill's 1947 play of the same name. Coincidentally, Ed Flanders starred in the 1970s Broadway revival of the classic play.
