    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (6)

      • Goof: When the goon aims his gun at the scarecrow (Murdock), the shot makes it look like it's far away. Yet Murdock is able to jump the distance to tackle him.

      • This is the only episode where the A-Team is not together.

      • When Murdock and B.A. hide from Decker under the leaves, the men who emerge from the leaves are not Dwight Schultz and Mr. T., but their stunt doubles.

      • During the chase in the early part of the episode, the police follow the A-Team van onto Eldridge Avenue, which is located in the San Fernando Valley, just north of Los Angeles Mission College. However, in the very next shot, the A-Team van is seen turning off of Waring Avenue, which is located in West Hollywood, 20 miles south!

      • Deke and his girlfriend have beers at a saloon called "Black Stallion" after his jailbreak.

      • The American flag behind Decker's desk is positioned to his left. Flag etiquette dictates that it be stationed to his right.

    • QUOTES (7)

      • Callie: Have you ever thought of hiring yourself out, Mr Smith? I'm sure there're a lot of people out there who could use your help.
        Hannibal: Well, we ought to think about that, right guys?
        Murdock: Yeah
        BA: Yeah

      • Malcolm: Where'd you learn to drive like that?
        Murdock: I saw Cannonball Run... five times.

      • Deke: Well, you've come to the end of the road, pal. You just dug yourself a grave.
        Hannibal: No, this is too short for me.

      • Murdock: Luck is with us now. My rabbit's foot's gonna bring us luck all the way back to L.A.
        B.A.: Rabbit had four of 'em - didn't do him much good.

      • Murdock: B.A., I'd like to take this opportunity to tell you I'm real sorry that they took your gold back at the prison.
        B.A.: That's all right. If I don't get it back, I'll just have to kill you.

      • (about B.A.)
        Murdock: Does he look like the kind of guy that could threaten someone? (pauses) Let me rephrase that question.

      • Murdock: Let me put it this way. Taking this van is like taking downtown Tokyo from Godzilla.

    • NOTES (2)

      • Lenore Kasdorf would go on to play on Coach, as Hayden's ex-wife.

      • This episode marked the TV debut of actress Melanie Wilson (Nurse Morgan), who would go on to play Jennifer (the girlfriend of Mark Linn-Baker's character, Larry) in the sitcom Perfect Strangers.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Malcolm Jones: Where'd you learn to drive like that?
        Murdock: I saw Cannonball Run five times.

        In the 1981 movie, Burt Reynolds plays a driver in an illegal cross-country race called the "Cannonball Run."
