    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (3)

      • During most night-time shots of the Torino during this episode, the headlights are a little strange. The four-headlight arrangement is common, with the low beams to the outside and the high beams the inner lamps. It is possible to have only the low beams on or both the high and low-beam bulbs on, but never just the high beam bulbs. This episode shows only the inside high-beam bulbs illuminated, unlike any other episode. This is not a factory arrangement.

      • The 'go-go dancer/ear-blowing' scene is part of the 2nd season opening credits.

      • Ramon Bieri (Bo Rile) and Doodles Weaver (Eddie Hoyle) arrive at the paint factory. We see Eddie Hoyle dressed all in brown (pants and jacket). Bo knocks Eddie down and when Bo is tugging Konig's wallet in the pants pocket, we see that the color of the pants is not brown but something close to light blue!

    • QUOTES (1)

      • Starsky: (on Hutch's healthfood diet) Well, there's always ground-up unicorn toes and, if that's not available, why don't we throw in the ever-popular South American hoot owl's beak?

    • NOTES (1)

      • Doodles Weaver is seen again as the slow-witted but well-meaning Eddie Hoyle, friend to 'Starpy & Hup', in the second season episode "Gillian".

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Hutch: (to Officer Nedloe and his wife) What I don't understand is what's wrong with these watch Police Story, don't you? You know cops aren't supposed to be happily married?
        He's referring to the mid-70's NBC police anthology show as notable for its psychological dramas as its police procedurals. The allusion's especially notable because tv shows of the time rarely referred to shows on rival networks.
