Trivia

First appearance of Brynn Thayer as Leanne McIntyre, Matlock's daughter. Fans of the show debate whether this is supposed to be a second daughter or his only daughter. In season one, Linda Purl played Charlene Matlock, who left to go to work in Philadelphia, PA. She was only rarely mentioned during the intervening seasons. Here, Leanne McIntyre (her married name), was living in Philadelphia, coincidentally, before deciding to return. Some people assume that this is his only daughter, and as some TV shows will do, the character has been changed. Matlock never said he had any other children. See more »

Goofs

After Leanne and Ben take the judge's second case, Leanne mistakenly refers to Judge Arthur Eller as "Anthony." See more »
