    • TRIVIA (3)

      • In preparation for their assignment, the S.W.A.T. team receives a scuba diving refresher course. Lt. Harrelson says that since all of them have their C-cards, they only need a refresher.

      • The name of the cruise ship on which the show's events take place is the S.S. Princess Louise.

      • Laurence Haddon is credited as Lieutenant Rogers although in the show he introduces himself to Lt. Harrelson as Sergeant Rogers.

    • QUOTES (5)

      • (remembering where he knows Lt. Harrelson from)
        Russ Baker (Professor Pelican): I remember, I remember now. You saved my life. Here I am and I was close to death, but you saved my life Sgt. Harrelson ... Lieutenant, sorry, congratulations Lieutenant. Russ Baker, Russ Baker, that's my real name. You kept picking up for drunk down on Main Street five or so years ago, and you kept throwing me into the tank, giving me a warm place to sleep, hot shower in the morning, fixing it up and sending me out to the farm to bag in the old rays and get some warm good chow in me, and I'd say:
        Russ Baker & Lt. Harrelson: (together) No more skunk drunk, health and wealth for me!
        Lt. Harrelson: Yeah! Yeah, I remember you. So, you're OK these days, huh?
        Russ Baker: Sure, I'm a free man. Don't own anything I can't carry, in fact I don't own anything!

      • (arriving to question a group of ladies painting by the waterfront)
        Luca: Good morning ladies, how are you? (to the instructor) I bet you stared out as a model.
        Instructor: I bet I started out as a baby.
        Luca: Ah, have you seen two guys and a girl?
        Instructor: Hmm, sounds like a musical.
        Luca: Not this time, I'm afraid. It's really police business. A man's been killed.

      • (talking about Professor Pelican)
        Kay: Sounds like he leads a good life.
        Lt. Harrelson: Yeah, these drunks, ex-drunks, once they're off the stuff, they seem to enjoy life more.
        Kay: They have been through a war.
        Lt. Harrelson: That's it.

      • (over dinner while waiting for Lt. Harrelson)
        Street: So, what do you do at Sea Land, train dolphins I suppose?
        Janice: Yes.
        Street: You do?
        Janice: Mmhmm. Do you realize that they live in two-thirds of the world and we only live in one-third? So, they have to be right?
        Street: Right about what?
        Janice: Dolphins know the secret. You know what it is?
        Street: I give up.
        Janice: It's friendship, for no advantage. They don't expect anything in return. Just true friends.
        Street: I'll drink to that.
