In this episode, Nancy Drew and Frank Hardy share a kiss.
Joe Hardy: (about Nancy) Hasn't changed much, has she?
Frank Hardy: Yeah, she's flipped out!
Joe Hardy: Maybe that's why you like her so much.
Reporter: Is it true you've found the missing witness in the Powell trial and will present him at this convention?
Jason Fox: The only thing I'll be presenting at this convention will be an open mind!
Jason Fox: Haven't you brought those two young men who usually solve your cases?
Fenton Hardy: I did bring them, and they occasionally allow me to solve one or two of my own!
Frank Hardy: This young lady's quite trustworthy.
Nancy Drew: "Quite trustworthy"?! You'd make a great character witness!
Frank Hardy: Well, with some characters it's tough!
Frank Hardy: (about Nancy) If she wasn't so exasperating.....
Joe Hardy: You wouldn't like her so much!
Frank Hardy: Maybe.
(in a television studio lot)
Joe Hardy: I always find these sets kinda eerie. They're disturbing. I mean, they're real rooms but there's no backing, there's no substance. Perfect homes for people who only exist in your imagination.
Farnk and Nancy meet a man dressed like and acting like Lieutenant Columbo (Peter Falk) as Frank comments on being a fan and a fan of the show. The man finally admits he is not really Columbo he's just an actor named Phil Hamilton (Casey Kasem).
