When Perry is told that Sylvia Oxman has been gambling in Gardena, Perry mentions that gambling is legal there. This is true; Gardena was issued the first legal card club license in the State of California, in 1936. Casinos provide the principal employment in Gardena to this day.

Perry is a good calculator. According to Mr. Duncan, The Clover Club charges between $0.50 and $2.00 per half-hour per chair, there are 35 tables, and they are open for 19 hours a day. There were 7 people playing at the table including Paul and Perry. Assuming an average take of $2.50 per hour per table and that the Clover Club was fully booked all day long, they took in $2.50 x 35 x 19 x 7 = $11,637.50 per day. Perry's "conservative" estimate of $10,000 is very close. Submitted by 10yearoldfan, 11 June 2012.

Ten episodes back (TCOT Fraudulent Foto) there was some question about where the murder took place (in LA county, but what city ??) Here there is no doubt: it's in another city which had it's own Police Dept at the time. So what is Tragg doing there ?? Were they contracting out the investigatory duties...was he moonlighting...any ideas ?? Submitted by Notcom 092915

Tragg has a great line in this episode. When Perry states that the suspect's brother and husband can provide an alibi for her, Tragg replies that he has half a dozen witnesses who can refute her alibi, none of whom are related to Burger. Submitted by vgy7ujm 10/15/20
