Trivia[]

  • This episode was co-written by David Ketchum, best known to Get Smart fans as Agent 13.
  • The name of the doctor Max consults, Abbott Norman, is an obvious play on the name of the episode's director, Norman Abbott.
  • When Max says, "All work and no play...", Agent 99 sassily finishes for him, "...makes Max a dead boy". This should be "...makes Max a live boy", since, if Max had been working as she had thought, he wouldn't have been poisoned.

Reality Check[]

This episode is a parody of the 1950 film D.O.A.
