      • This was the first Gene Barry segment of the season. Dave Grusin, who is responsible for the show's theme, composes the music for this episode. We find out in this episode that Glenn Howard's zodiac sign is "Leo" and that he actually lives in a penthouse at the top of the Howard Publications building.
