  • Trivia

    • In the final scene of this half of the story, when Dr. Stegner is showing the brain-washed Debra the pictures of Hutch, Starsky and Nash on the projector, watch as the shot pans across the room – the projector images are a matte added in post-production, and as the shot pans across, the images don't look quite right; as the shot pans to the right, the edges of the shot supposedly shown on the projector wander back and forth slightly.

  • Notes

    • Starsky knows Durniak from childhood and Durniak mentions that Starsky's father was murdered but he never comes right out and says Starsky's dad was a cop. Though the 'fact' is assumed by many fans as canon for the show.

    • Hutch is heard to sing and whistle 'Black Bean Soup', a song written by David Soul, which he and Starsky had previously sung in the first season's 'Death Notice'.

    • Although the feature-length 'The Last Vegas Strangler' and 'Murder At Sea' (and probably the Pilot too) also exist in two-part versions, this was the first story of the series to be originally broadcast as a two-parter. It likely also exists in feature-length format.
