    • TRIVIA (1)

      • In the first lip-synched musical number of this episode (Sammy Kaye's "The Umbrella Man") the trumpet player is shown playing a prominent lead melody. The sound of the trumpet is cup-muted, but the trumpet is "open".

    • QUOTES (2)

      • Mr. Hall to Reginald, who is going to talk to Marlow: "Ask 'im how it ends, for God's sake. And how soon!"

      • Part of Gibbon's free-association game: "money--shit, fish--Jesus, God--doctor, Guardian--misprint, Sun--trash, you--me, me--Tarzan, ... dream--wake, sleep--lie, politician--lie, table--lie, writer--liar, sentence--prison ..."
