  • Trivia

    • Women weren't allowed within the sacristy at that time, and a layperson wouldn't have been asked to go in and prepare the altar linens, so the ploy at the end of the episode would not have worked.

    • Bishops don't wear a huge button-fixed cross on their civvies.

  • Quotes

    • Stone: What is a street priest like him doing here on the staff?
      Msgr.: Frankly it was an effort to tame him down—all those arrests for civil disobedience... street protests and all.

  • Notes

    • James J. Sweeney won an Edgar Allan Poe Awards "Edgar" in the Best Television Episode category for his work on this episode.

    • Filming Locations: the cemetery scene was filmed in the Mission Dolores graveyard; the church where the bishop is shot is St. Paul's Church on Church Street
