Did You Know?

A scene in which Phelps (Peter Graves) recruits Dana (Lesley Ann Warren) into the IMF was filmed but left out, because of uncertainty as to when this episode would be aired. In the event it was the second telecast of the season.See more »
Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): When Barney sneaks on the truck carrying the drugs, he tells Jim there are ten cases of them. However, in some shots you can clearly count at least 19 cases.See more »

Mel Bracken:70,000 bennies? Man, you haven't even started to push. Are you kidding me.
Pusher:Look, in Seattle, between the pigs and the preachers...
Mel Bracken:Let me explain. Will you let me explain? You know kids aren't the only pillheads in this country. In fact, I'm planning to hook up with an organization in Denver. That's right, Denver. And they're planning on flooding the suburbs. You know what that means, man, huh? That means that we're gonna triple our volume in a month.
