When Hart enters the room for Kingsfield's first seminar, Kingsfield doesn't know who he is. This is very odd, considering that Kingsfield took Hart with him to New York as his research assistant the previous year (in the episode entitled "The Apprentice" during the series' first season). Even if he hadn't spent several days with Hart, Kingsfield would surely remember such an outstanding student in his class after a hiatus of only a few months.
Returning to the series were John Houseman as Professor Kingsfield, James Stephens as Hart, Tom Fitzsimmons as Ford, and James Keane as Bell. Jane Kaczmarek and Michael Tucci joined the cast as Connie Lehman and Gerald Golden.
