    • A geographical error was made at the end of the first round (the map mislabeled the Adriatic Sea as the Aegean Sea). After the episode ended, a message appeared explaining that due to this error, Tahare Campbell (the gumshoe eliminated after the first round) would be invited back to play a new game in the next season. Campbell returned in Season 3's "The Glacier Erasure," and this time, he made it all the way to the final round and captured Carmen in Asia.

  • QUOTES (2)

    • Carmen: Rat, that yeti is drawing too much attention. Head for the Atlantic Coast of the United States. Hide out in Grover's Mill, a small town east of Princeton.
      Wonder Rat: Aw, don't send me to the states, Carmen.
      Carmen: You'll like it. The place is famous for a big media hoax. It happened on Halloween Eve in 1938. People were listening to their radios when they heard a report that space creatures were invading near Grover's Mill.
      Wonder Rat: Gee, I didn't know Kneemoi hung out in the Garden State.
      Carmen: It wasn't Kneemoi. It was a radio drama, but lots of people thought it was true and panicked.
      Wonder Rat: Geez, if I could get that kind of attention, just think. Newspapers, magazines, CNN--
      Carmen: FBI, criminal court, jail.
      Wonder Rat: Yeah. Yeah. I'll stay outta sight.

    • Wonder Rat: If there's one thing a rat can do, it's rat! If you wanna find Carmen Sandiego, sniff around Europe.
