  • Notes

    • Bill Cosby and Robert Culp worked together on the series I Spy.

    • In this episode, Cockroach (Carl Anthony Payne) was willing to shave his head. Ironically, Payne would be dismissed from the guest cast the next season by Bill Cosby for refusing to cut his hair.

    • Robert Culp's character's name in this episode combines the last name of Bill Cosby's character (Scott) and the first name of Culp's character (Kelly) from the series "I Spy."
