TRIVIA:

Richard Herd remembered this episode: "That was during my 'bad guy' period," he said. "I was always throwing grenades and firing machine guns back then."

Michael tells Sheila that the last time a woman told him she needed five minutes to get a change of clothes, she stood him up and it took him two days to track her down.

Judy Landers previously appeared in the episode FORGET ME NOT. Paul Tuerpe also appears in the episode KNIGHT OF THE RISING SUN, while Michael Masters appears in THE FINAL VERDICT and KNIGHT SONG. Logan Ramsey previously appeared in the first season episode NO BIG THING.

SCRIPT TO SCREEN:

Tyler Jastrow is described as "incredibly beautiful, a sultry quality; hair that tumbles onto her shoulders as she breaks into an appealing, disarming smile. She's twenty-six -- and is as intelligent and calculating as she is beautiful."

Sheila is introduced as "twenty-three, a knockout in leather jacket, shorts, cartridge belt, boots, an Uzi planted on her hip... A crowd of men watch -- attention divided between the equipment and Sheila's -- vulnerable eyes, tumbling blonde hair and legs as long as half-time at the Super Bowl."

According to the script, the missing Tom O'Malley had been at a desert spa all along, recovering from his first four nights at the survivalist convention.
