Robert Costanzo (Phil Simpkins) is credited as a Special Guest Star.
Goof: When one of the gold robbers shoots at George Scroope, the security guard lying on the floor, at point blank range, no bullets hit his body. He doesn't even twitch to look like he's been hit by a bullet.
Nitpick: When Jesse arrives at scene of the last gold heist, he sees Phil Simpkins and says "It's Phil." Norman then asks "Phil who?" as if he has never heard of him before. However, Jesse previously told Norman about the "12th Street Protection Association" (the neighbourhood watch) and Phil Simpkins. Norman even specifically asked Jesse to keep a close watch on Phil.
During the majority of the episode, Norman has trouble using the Command Center computer because the phone lines are down. However, at the end of the episode the phone lines are back up again, Norman has a visual on Jesse's helmet camera, and he is able to activate the hyperthrust on the bike. Despite reports claiming the contrary, the bike does not break down in this episode.
Goof: When Melanie Ryan gets out of the pool, a tattooed rose can be seen above her right breast. Highlight below for a spoiler: Later when Norman and Jesse talk about Kathryn Reese's/Melanie Ryan's distinguishing marks, they say the tattoo is on her right shoulder.
Goof: Joe Regalbuto (Norman) mispronounces Ferrer's last name as "Ferrar".
Goof: A camera crew can be seen reflected in Jesse's helmet in the opening scene at the airport.
Nitpick: When Monroe kidnaps Elizabeth Morgan, he blindfolds her with a scarf... but doesn't tie her hands. What stopped her from taking off the blindfold?
Goof: Dr. Hatfield says that septicemia is always fatal. However, equine septicemia, i.e. blood poisoning because of infectious bacteria in the blood stream, usually occurs only on foals, 3 to 4 days after birth. Rebel's Choice is clearly a full-grown horse, not a foal. Additionally, the death rate of septicemia ranges between 30-75%, so although the condition is severe and advances rapidly, it is not always fatal.
The supposedly kidnapped horse is named Rebel's Choice. The other horse involved in the horse switching scheme is called Cyclone. They were both sired by the same stallion, Thunder Bay.
Writer Stefanie Craig (Belinda Montgomery) is Jesse's old friend, who used to work for the police department in the archives. Norman, on the other hand, is a big fan of hers and has read all her books. In the end of the episode Ms. Craig says that her next book will reveal the Street Hawk's identity.
Goof: Norman's car, which was supposedly destroyed in the previous episode (1-9: Hot Target), can again be seen outside the Street Hawk Command Center. In fact, the car is parked outside the Command Center in every episode until the end of the series, but Norman never drives it again.
Charles Napier (John Slade) is credited as a Special Guest Star.
Goof: Mona hits Mr. Costa on the head with an empty glass container. In the next shot with Mr. Costa lying on the floor, the carpet looks wet as if the contents of the container had been spilled on the floor.
Nitpick: Norman is able to access the Street Hawk Command Center computer from Marpell Industries. If it's a top-secret government operation, why is the computer not secured? Maybe they hadn't heard of firewalls.
Goof: Norman's car falls off a cliff and is completely destroyed. However, in the next scene there is a familiar shot of the exterior of the Street Hawk Command Center, where Norman's car can be seen in its usual position. They obviously used stock footage without realizing that the car shouldn't be there.
Norman was offered the chance to work for Marpell Industries 7 years earlier together with Mona Williams (guest star Joanna Kerns). Only Mona accepted.
Bianca Jagger is credited as a Special Guest Star.
For the first time, Jesse uses hyperthrust in heavy traffic. Previously he has only used it to ride the bike on empty back roads or in the city during the night.
