- This episode and "Colors" tie for the earliest case with a male victim. Since "Colors" was solved two years sooner, this one was technically older. There were eight episodes which took place earlier: "Torn" (1919), "Beautiful Little Fool" (1929), "Best Friends" (1932), "World's End" (1938), "The Letter" (1939), and "Factory Girls" (1943), "WASP" (1944), and "The Hen House" (1945) ; all of which had female victims.
- Billy Takahashi's image also appears at the end even when he was not killed by the murderer.
- No song was played in the end of the episode because this was a World War II related episode, the producers decided that they should have Billy's letter read by David Hynuh in the end of the episode.
