  • Notes

    • Each episode's "hook" was a unique limerick which was revealed line by line as the show progressed. A line of the poem was shown just before each commercial break. The full limerick for this episode went like this;

      From Washington came a young man,
      To capture some worms in a tin can,
      They con him, they frame him,
      For murder they blame him,
      'Til he holds all the strings to their plan.

      The wrap-up for this episode (because the pilot ran 90 minutes) ended with a last line...

      That's all for now Delphian...
