+ That Star Trek episode also has a more prominent PM connection, namely Karl Held as sociologist Lidstrom (his only appearance on the series). Held's PM run as David Gideon would conclude with the next two episodes to be produced. TriviaSleuth, 8/8/19

Smashed Clock: It's funny that damaged clocks and watches in murder mysteries always have the correct time and all other timepieces seem to be synchronized. Submitted by H. Mason 11/15/14
This episode (production #138) was held over for some reason for almost three months. The first actual fifth season episode shown this season (September 30) was episode #139 so this episode could have been broadcast then. Instead most of the episodes in the production range of the 140s were shown before this one was broadcast on December 16. Submitted by Wiseguy70005, 12/22/14.
+ That explains a lot, Wiseguy70005! First, Della is fully present and has lines, unlike in later episodes, where she is silenced or absent; second, George E. Stone is still with us in the courtroom; and third, the quality of the plot and dialogue is excellent. No wonder I thought, "Hey, they got back to their old quality here!" Sadly, no...this is a legacy episode from before things declined a bit. Not that the show was ever bad, but the first 4 seasons are the gold standard, in my opinion. Submitted by JazzBaby, 3/5/2019.
Who paid the $10,000 to the photographer? Submitted by WJones 2/18/16
Why is there a sign advertising Sue Ellen's appearance at Medeci's club when she supposedly stopped working there when she married? Seems unlikely someone rifling the safe wouldn't check the contents of that envelope. In keeping with the tradition of alliterative titles, this could have been "Banished Bride"
