Jim Rockford's California Private Investigator License is seen up close in this episode, number 463025, and lists him as "Height: 6' Weight: 195 Age: 37." Interestingly, James Garner's height in real life is 6'2", and at the time this episode was broadcast, he was 46 years old. Since there is no issue date on the license, there is no way of knowing when Jim Rockford was actually age 37. See more
In the syndicated version of this episode, Jim Rockford's 74 Firebird Esprit with 2 headlights changes/morphs to a 77 Firebird with 4 headlights repeatedly back and forth from the 5th through the 12 minute of the teleplay. This is due to the addition of stock footage when the episode was converted into a two-parter for syndication. Of course these were the days before VCR replays. See more

You already got trouble. The only question is whether you're going to wake up tomorrow breathing air or dirt.
