Memorable Moments

Mickey Sholdar's character in this episode tries to attack Diana Hyland with a power drill, only to be thwarted when, as he's moving toward her, the plug becomes dislodged from the wall. Similarly, in a Dragnet episode four years later, Sholdar is terrorizing a group of his high-school classmates at a party with a live grenade he's holding. Jack Webb manages to distract him by...dislodging a plug to a record player!
