Jim's Yellow Page ad for "The Rockford Agency" is seen at the beginning of this episode, with two interesting pieces of information shown, and one important piece of information missing. The first interesting thing is "Our trained investigators have specialized in closed cases since 1968, Criminal Only." The second interesting thing is Jim's address is given as 2354 Ocean Blvd., Los Angeles, an address which does not correspond to any address ever given for Rockford, who was located at 29 Cove Road, Malibu. The important piece of information missing is there is no telephone number in the ad. See more
Rockford and Sara are hiding among the rocks in the desert to protect themselves from Jerry shooting at them from the plane. Rockford shoots three times at the plane on its first pass and five more times when it flies over again a few moments later. It was a regular six-shot revolver, and we don't see him reload. See more
