    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Hannibal's Aquamaniac scene in the early part of this episode was filmed on the Santa Monica beach, northwest of the pier. The buildings in the distance include 100 Wilshire (the tallest building in Santa Monica), the Wilshire Palisades building (1299 Ocean Ave.), and the dual towers of the Pacific Plaza Apartments (1431 Ocean Ave.).

    • QUOTES (2)

      • (Bobbi holds a gun to Hannibal's back)
        Bobbi: Who the hell are you?
        Hannibal: I'm Hannibal Smith and if I could persuade you to take that gun down, this could be the start of an interesting friendship.

      • Hannibal: What kind of a scungeel would call himself a coffin?
        Face: Well, probably the same kind that would call himself "Hannibal".
        Hannibal: Come on, Face. Hannibal the Great was a general, he was a thinker. A coffin is just a suitcase for a dead body.

    • NOTES (0)

    • ALLUSIONS (3)

      • Face: I don't want to be judgmental, but, well, marrying the rich owner of the newspaper where you work -- Rock Hudson and Doris Day did that movie in 1950.

        Rock Hudson and Doris Day appeared in three movies together: Pillow Talk (1959), Lover Come Back (1961), and Send Me No Flowers (1964) -- none of which match the plot that Face describes. Perhaps he was thinking of the 1940 film His Girl Friday with Cary Grant and Rosalind Russell -- though Grant played an editor, rather than the owner.

      • Hannibal: See, it's a classic. A kind of a Pygmalion with scales, huh?

        George Bernard Shaw's play Pygmalion premiered in Vienna in 1913 and has been frequently adapted since. Perhaps the best known version is the Broadway musical (and subsequent film) My Fair Lady.

      • David: Mattie, get this guy out of this costume and get me another stiff from the wardrobe department. One that won't bore the pants off me with this Stanislavski drivel.

        Constantin Stanislavksi (or Konstantin Stanislavsky) developed a system for training actors that still remains one of the most popular among professionals in theatre, film, and television. Since George Peppard studied at the Actors Studio in New York, he would have been quite familiar with Stanislavski's methods.
