Episode Notes
In an inside joke by the writers of the episode, Barry Morse's character is named after Naked City creator Stirling Silliphant.

William Shatner would return in WIthout Stick or Sword.

If the veiwer pays close attention to the early scenes in the apartment, he/she should easily be able to figure out whether or not "William Shatner" is guilty.
