The version of The Hurricane Song in this episode is longer than the version on the album, with an entire second verse added.  The demo single version of the song is the same as on the album, so perhaps the long version is only ever heard in this episode.

Itís kind of an in-joke when Sgt. Vinton goes back to the old west, since actor Robert Emhardt appeared in many western television series and movies during his career.

Guest Stars: Rita Wilson as Rosemary Time
