Character actress Fritzi Burr
makes her annual appearance in this episode. She plays the clerk at the vet clinic, to whom Jim chats with, trying to track down the ephemeral 'phantom-lady Odette Sorrell'. Ms. Burr appears in one episode-per-season, usually playing a tart-tongued employee, with a terrific 'poker-face', but, here she's (comparatively speaking) ebullient. In her last appearance in the series, she plays the wife of Vern St. Cloud, who makes his first appearance in this episode. See more
