Trivia

From the beginning of the Mod Squad, Linc, Pete and Julie have always been seen together at each epilogue's ending - finishing in freeze frame as credits begin. This is the first episode (unless noticed by another) where all three were not in the end scene; Linc and Pete leave the scene of the burning car (correctly noted as not a 1970 Lincoln, but a 1963 or 1964 Lincoln suicide door non-matching different model - painted the same canary yellow.)Julie is not in this scene; she was last seen in the apartment recovering from her abduction - presumably the reason she could not suddenly show up to be part of the dynamited car scene.

Goofs

At the end Capt. Greer gives the Thomas family a lift back in the Air Rescue helicopter. Pete and Linc, who had arrived with Greer in the helicopter are left behind and they drive away in a blue car. Where did the blue car come from? See more »
