  • Notes

    • Deleted scenes for this episode on the Season 3 DVD include Joanna asking why her husband did it, and Dutch talking to Claudette about rapes and murders.

    • The original script didn't call for Dutch to kill the cat. A last minute decision was made for him to do so, and the sequence had to be refilmed two days after the episode was finished.

    • The word 'Pepsi' was mentioned in the episode because soda company is a show sponsor. The soda is also mentioned in the episode Dead Soldiers.

    • Guest stars, Rebecca Pidgeon and Clark Gregg previously played opposite each other in David Mamet's 2000 film, "State and Main." Rebecca Pidgeon is also the wife of writer/director David Mamet.
