  • Trivia

    • Murdock's shirt says: Stamp Out Cellulite.

    • Murdock is automatically assumed into the program, although his team membership has always been in question with the government.

    • New opening scenes and credits are rolled in this episode, the fifth season premiere. The theme song has also been reworked.

    • Goof:
      Stockwell says "Your callsigns will be Empress 7 through 12."

      There are only four members of the A-Team, and along with Frankie Santana, it would make a total of five.

      "7 through 12" would be six numbered call-signs.
