Trivia

When this episode originally aired, the name of the nuclear plant was still in the soundtrack. Later airings had every use of the original name re-dubbed with a new plant name (phonetically: "Tu-cor" or "Too-core") in all lines of dialog. The best reference to what the original name was can be seen outside the window of the company doctor. The name "Nuckon" is painted on the wall which (I assume) was too close to the name of some existing company back in the '70s. See more »

Joe Rossi: [pause] It would be nice if you'd tell me it's not my fault.
