This episode originally included a scene in which Hammer interrogates Kruggle by burning him with hot coffee and firing a rifle at him. But ABC felt that the Kruggle was likable and audiences would not like to see him tortured so the scene was deleted. It was restored for the DVD release. See more »

Goofs

After Hammer rescues Doreau, she says, "Thank goodness you followed me here," and Hammer replies, "Don't thank goodness, thank gun." But you can see that they are actually saying, "Thank God," instead of "Thank goodness" which was dubbed in post-production. See more »
