Story Notes Edit

  • This is both the twentieth produced episode of the series and the twentieth episode to be shown on television.
  • Michael Constantine (Captain Heinrich), would go on to star as the worried principal Seymour Kaufman in Room 222, and more recently as the father in My Big Fat Greek Wedding.
  • This is the first time in the series that none of the series' semi-regulars characters did not appear in an episode for two consecutive episodes.
  • The Rolling Stones made Claudine Longet (Michelle) the subject of a song that was eventually cut from the 1980 album Emotional Rescue. It was simply titled, "Claudine". Copies of the song have survived, thanks to piracy.
  • The pickup truck that Captain Heinrich drives is a 1947 Ford half-ton according to some sources. However, the extra signal lights atop the fenders resemble those on a 1942 model ... and it was not until the 1948 model year that Ford vehicles really developed a post-war look (as seen in The Gold Rush).
