FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (2)

    • Ross Hazlitt: Right now, you're my biggest problem. It really is a shame, Jerry. You got the eyes, the hands, all the technical know-how. You've got the best form since Roy Wallace. You know what I think of Roy. But you've got too many hangups. You choke. Your tense. You project all your anxieties. If we had the time, I'd spend the money and send you to group therapy. Get some insight into what's causing all of these conflicts. Lay the axe at the roots as my dad used to say.

    • Ross Hazlitt: Who's your friend the athlete? A magician? (Laughs.) You gotta be putting me on. Well, your magician friend is going to vanish before you can say abracadabra.

  • NOTES (2)

    • Nani Darnell, wife of series magic consultant Mark Wilson, has a quick guest shot as she assists Tony (Bill Bixby) onstage.

    • Magic performed in this episode

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • Asassin Ross Hazlitt: A psychic? I've read some books about that, done some research. The cops use those people. There was a Dutchman you know? They say that when he locks onto you, they show up at your door.
      Ross Hazlitt is referring to an well-known "psychic" of the time, who was, however, exposed as being somewhat less than genuine or effective by The Amazing Randi and others.
