Did You Know?
Guest star Meg Wylie, who appears as the chaperone of the 2 young ladies, is very well-known, though, not as a woman, as she portrayed the leading bald-headed Talosian keeper, in the pilot of Star Trek
(1966) (The Cage), which was re-used for the episodes The Menagrie, pts. 1 & 2 (though the character was voiced by Vic Perrin, and later re-voiced by Malachi Throne). See more

It could happen to you but not to us. Not twice in three weeks.
