Trivia Edit

The first - maybe only - example in the entire history of the Series/movies where the two lead guest stars share homonymic names (? I didn't verify this, hence the question mark, but for those with much ambition - or is it just too much time? - it should be easy enough). Notcom 053122.

Also perhaps the only examply where Perry's client is not overjoyed at the outcome (In fact he seems downright angry). Notcom 053122.
