"Diabolically Clever!", "Diabolical Cat!" & "Delinquent Cat!" could be three substitute nicknames for D.C. Randall. Patricia Randall, (Patty) specifically said "DC is really "diabolically clever.", to FBI Supervisor Newton, on Friday evening, just before Margaret Miller was successfully rescued. D.C. did cause ruckus almost throughout the movie.

When Patti meets Mr. Kelso for the first time in his FBI office she says that her father named the cat. She says her father called the cat "something much worse" than "darn" but her mother wouldn't let them use that name. The inference is that Patti's father named the cat: "Damn", from the Gordon's novel, "Undercover Cat", that this movie was created from.

In the French-dubbed version, D.C.'s name is "P.V.", which means from french translation "Petit Voyou": Little Delinquent. Which would put another apparent name: Delinquent Cat.

When Iggy first thinks that he and Dan stole $250,000 from the bank. Dan told him the amount is $160,000. Iggy then went to their gagged bankteller, Margaret Miller and ask her. After asking if it is $250,000, she shook her head no. Iggy then asked if it was $200,000 she shook her head no again. Then, when he asked, if it was $160,000, then she nodded her head yes. [Iggy threatened to hit Margaret Miller with a right hook, but Dan stopped him]. The amounts of Iggy first two guesses decreased each 20%, exactly. 80% of $250,000 is $200,000 & 80% of $200,000 is $160,000.
