    • Newscaster: And here's a late bulletin regarding today's daring airport robbery. There were no injuries, passengers and crew recovered within minutes from the effects of the gas. Indications are that the robbery was the work of The Green Hornet and police has manned a full scale dragnet for his capture.

    • Marcus: Do you have any questions?
      Britt: Several, the first one I would like to ask is why pinpoint The Green Hornet?
      Marcus: Well, why not? I mean, he is the most masterful criminal of our time.

    • Mike: I suppose I should tell you, I was on to that guy Marcus all the time.
      Casey: You were?
      Britt: Well, you disguised is pretty well.
      Mike: Strictly an act. I was hoping to get to his boss.
      Casey: You mean The Green Hornet?
      Mike: The same!

  • Notes

    • This was probably the first episode filmed under the regular weekly series schedule, as Bruce Lee is not wearing a mask made from a mold of his face but the angularly stylized one otherwise seen only in the pilot, "Programmed for Death" (q.v.), some stills in the standard opening title sequence, and a few scattered stock shots.

    • Two days before this episode aired (9/28/66), Van Wiliams and Bruce Lee had brief cameos in the Batman episode "The Spell of Tut (1)". They appeared during one of Batman and Robin's wall climbing sequences.
