Actor Ramon Bieri who plays "Capt. Webster" previously appeared in episode #8 "Bad Medicine" also cast as a police captain only in that episode he was called "Capt. Baker." Some fans believe this is a simple scripting error and that the actor was meant to play the same character in two episodes, as did Keenan Wynn.
Nanautzin (The Mummy):
This is Mickey Gilbert's second appearance as a Kolchak monster. The first time was as the "Ripper" in the first episode.
Carl: (opening narration) Among the philosophers, the great thinkers and the common Joe's of this world, no question is more controversial than truth. Remarkable as it may seem, I can attest that the following events did occur, whether you believe them to be true or not.
Carl: (voice over on his unkept promises to Tony) I promised I'd show up with a haircut, new hat and pressed suit...but I lie a lot.
Carl: What do you mean, no press? You can’t keep the press out of here Lyons! Lyons… I know you! I was down at the ceremony where you were awarded the medal of valor, right? Yeah, you wasted two bank robbers, right?
Lyons: But you’re not getting in. And it was three bank robbers.
Carl: Yeah, well, I know it was three. I just… uh… I thought maybe I could do an article on you… A series of articles! Maybe a two-parter!
Lyons: You’re still not getting in.
(Kolchak is skipping out on an event Tony asked him to attend.)
Carl: Listen, Tony, I’ll see you later! I got to check out this homicide!
Tony: (Yelling after a departing Carl) There’s gonna be a homicide right here if you don’t get back here.
Tony: You see why credibility is so important to a newsman? And your credibility is zilch!
Carl: What businessman keeps a mummy in the basement, and a dummy in a key staff position?!?
Tony: Carl, you yourself said that the mummy vanished. And that you had a terrible hit on the head and you saw things. And as for having dummies in key staff positions… I’m as guilty as the next...
Carl: (closing narration) Well, officially the case was closed. They never found Anderson or Pepe, although I did hear that Pepe was working in a supermarket downstate. Nanautzin was dormant again, and I urge that he be destroyed. Without his fifth sacrifice, will he still rise up, fifty-two years from now? The police who found me didn’t understand what I was talking about. They felt that Nanautzin was a valuable museum piece and nothing more – just dead antiquity. Well, all I know, is I won’t be around fifty years from now for the millennium. Will you?
If 9/22 is a Monday, then 9/29 would also be a Monday and not a Wednesday, as Carl says it is.
At the very end of the episode, the supposedly inactive mummy opens an eye. Look closely for this just before the fade to credits.
