Sightings: A few favorite frequent faces show up in the courtroom gallery today: “Miss Carmody,” back row, prosecutor’s side; Little Old Lady #1, far corner, prosecutor's side; Distinguished Gentleman #1 near the Lady; and Quiet Old Man #1, in front of “Carmody” and near the Gentleman. The Little Old Lady has on a different hat today, too—much darker than usual. Read more about them all here. Submitted by gracep, 11/17/2010.
Uncredited Actors: Don Anderson joins our court as a spectator as Glamis is called to the stand. Bill767, 1/6/16.
Anomaly: Although only listed as “Autopsy Surgeon,” Michael Fox is, once again, Dr. Hoxie. Even Burger addresses him as such. Submitted by gracep, 11/17/2010.
The Curious Coffee Set makes two appearances in this episode. First in the opening scene and later in Perry’s office. Submitted via email from Evelyn, posted by daveb, 7/24/2011.
A '61 TBird was Pace Car at the Golden Anniversary Indy 500 (30 May 1961), ten days after this episode aired. Added by Gary Woloski, 11/23/12.
Served: For the third time Perry was given a subpoena. It also happened in episodes 17 and 30. Submitted by H. Mason 11/10/14
+ And, once again, Ham Burger disrupts the proceeding with his usual bad-mouthing of Perry while demanding his motion takes precedence over everything else. How does this guy keep his job as the DA? Submitted by Arisia, 03/18/18
FAULT Fun though it is to squeeze Tragg into a scene, it makes little sense that he would be serving a subpoena: Courts - at least at the level we see in PM - are a county function...the logical server would be someone from the sheriff's office. Nitpicked by Notcom, 122616.
+ Tragg commented that he wasn't just there making a courtesy call. So, maybe he decided to serve Perry personally since, unlike Burger, Tragg is a friendly adversary. Perry and Tragg have a mutual respect for one another. Burger respects no one. Submitted by by Arisia, 03/18/18
Case Closed!: Just as in episode 87, TCOT Singing Skirt, Perry solved the murder just before he was to be seated on the witness stand. Submitted by H. Mason 11/10/14
+ I'm sure he was STILL called after the fact, at least in chambers. Burger never lets ANYTHING slide by him; ESPECIALLY a chance to have Perry disbarred or charged with misconduct ;-) . Submitted by Arisia, 03/18/18
