    • TRIVIA (1)

      • When Cyrus calls New Dheli to speak with Bravo, the vehicles in the streets are not shown as driving opposite, like they do in the UK.

    • QUOTES (4)

      • Senator Richards: Forgive me, Lieutenant, but isn't this just a little bit of overkill?
        Lt. Harrelson: Maybe, Senator, but we think your life is worth the effort.

      • Senator Richards: Lieutenant, I just want you to know that I appreciate your concern, and your help.
        Lt. Harrelson: Senator, if you're worth killing, you're worth saving.
        Sen. Richards: Thanks. I think.

      • Lt. Harrelson: (on the telephone) All right. Thank you, doctor. I'll be in touch. (hangs up)
        Kay: What is it?
        Lt. Harrelson: That solider died of pneumonic plague. We've not only got to find an assassin, we got to find him quick. The man's a walking time bomb.

      • Lt. Harrelson: How serious can this get?
        Dr. Alan Mayhill (Public Health Service): He could kill anybody he comes into contact with; it could run into the thousands.

    • NOTES (1)

      • Classic TV star Rose Marie of The Dick Van Dyke Show makes her first appearance here as the recurring character Hilda, the lady who brings lunchtime sandwiches to the team.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Pneumonic plague
        According to the U.S.A.'s Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDSC), Pneumonic plague occurs when Y. pestis infects the lungs. This type of plague can spread from person to person through the air. Transmission can take place if someone breathes in aerosolized bacteria, which could happen in a bioterrorist attack. Pneumonic plague is also spread by breathing in Y. pestis suspended in respiratory droplets from a person (or animal) with pneumonic plague. Becoming infected in this way usually requires direct and close contact with the ill person or animal. Pneumonic plague may also occur if a person with bubonic or septicemic plague is untreated and the bacteria spread to the lungs.
