Trivia

The vehicle destroyed at the end of this episode was a 1970 Plymouth Satellite base sedan. The car's bright green color was "Limelight" (paint code J-5). See more »

Goofs

It is obvious that there are dummies in the green car when it goes down the embankment, and one of the dummies (the one with the blond wig) has a black safety harness on to prevent it from coming out of its seat. See more »

Unique episode for Whole Series
12 December 2013 | by (Pioneertown, California) – See all my reviews

Excellent script by Larry Alexander, delivers personal tragedy via special express-- heightened by Executive Producer Cy Chermak's decision to do the episode sans music. In the entire series there is no other episode like this. But the heaviness bothered everybody from fans, to network, to execs in the Thalberg Building at M.G.M.-- and this was never tried again. A worthy experiment, though. Robert Viharo bench presses the whole episode. Alexander worked for the series again with at least two more episodes, both noted for their "interior" psychology character revelations. Similar to the episode "Matchmakers" with an officer in trouble (retirement) and for whom Jon and Ponch lend their support with a girlfriend. In this script, "Andy", the Robert Viharo character, dies in their arms.
