About three minutes in and again 8 minutes in there is some classic product placement of a very cool American Flyers train set. Submitted by Eric Cooper, 6 January 2011.

A child was permitted to sleep with a real handgun under his pillow? Thank goodness nothing tragic happened to David Brady (David Selkirk), who was probably the only actor to wiggle his ears in closeup on PM. Submitted by MikeM, 11/06/2012

Although I'm sure the printing press was a necessary plot device in this episode, Dirk Benedict's declaration that the printing on the envelopes doesn't look like it was done on a typewriter is, of course, nonsense, because that's exactly what it looks like. Submitted by francis, 7/21/14.

I believe the point about it not looking like it was typed refers to the lack of impression on the paper which happens with a typewriter. A handpress can make the same shape letters without the telltale impression caused by the keys striking the paper. Submitted by KGarrett, 1/6/2016

An object lesson in bad parenting. Not just letting a child think a gun is a toy, but leaving that child alone, sleeping outside, while you drive to the airport! And just who ends up with custody of David? In front of dozens of witnesses, Martin Selkirk breaks Dirk Benedict's jaw while wearing brass knuckles. Uh, felonious assault charge, anyone?

Maybe itís just my perception, but I think Perry looks great in this episode. Iíve always felt he looks particularly good in dark suits, and when he sweeps back the curtain to reveal the body of Martin Selkirk, he cuts a formidable and impressive figure. Submitted by Dan K, 7/8/16.

The wrap-up segment is priceless as Della greets Paul with "Hello, Beautiful!" Then Paul offers to assist Della with babysitting, just like a couple of teenagers. Cute stuff. jfh 07Jul2017.
