  • Trivia

    • At the time he wrote this episode, lilacs had a special meaning to Robert Culp. On an early 70s episode of the gameshow Tattletales he mentioned that when he was courting his then wife Sheila Sullivan one night in New York there was a big storm. They couldn't get a cab and nothing was around but one little old man selling lilacs from a cart. Robert bought all the lilacs the man had and presented them to Sheila, one of which she preserved and kept under her wedding ring.

    • One of two episodes written by series star Robert Culp.
