      • Jim breaks into Tooley's office the second time and is caught by BJ and Smithy;
        BJ: Where's Brockelman?
        Jim: Oh, its not my turn to watch him.
        BJ: I can see you're gonna keep us in stitches...

    • NOTES (2)

      • This the first of only two occasions when Jim has his trailer moved from its usual location, here he moves it to a forrest.

        Dennis Dugan had a brief series as Ritchie Brockelman PI by Stephen J. Cannell and Steven Bocho, which also starred Robert Hogan as Sergeant Ted Coopersmith. This is Robert Hogan's second appearance this season.

        Second appearance of Simon Oakland as Vern St Cloud and second appearance by Jackie Cooper in the series.

        This episode does not feature Stuart Margolin or Gretchen Corbett (although Jim does try to telephone Beth without success).

        Part 2 unusually features a "previous episode reminder' segment before the title credits and even more unusually, the main title theme playing over in the closing credits.

        Clealy this episode is versatile in broadcasting it as two-part story or a special two-hour feature.

      • This was part of a 120 min TV movie, that introduces a character who's named Richie Brockelman. The character is popular enough to warrant a spin-off.
