  • Notes

    • Child actress Kristy McNichol's character in this episode, Joey Carston, is very similar to another character she previously played in the second season episode 'Little Girl Lost', also a "tomboy shop-lifter" – so much so that the more casual viewer could be forgiven for mistaking the two characters as one and the same! (McNichol also had another small part - also very tomboy-ish! - in the first season episode 'The Hostages'.)McNichol returns as Joey, as does Joey's mother (Ann Prentiss) in the fourth season episode 'Ninety Pounds of Trouble'.
