A death at an investment event leads Crabtree to the father he never knew and Murdoch to suspect he may be culpable.
- At the crime scene, George Crabtree meets his birth father for the first time but shares with the Detective that he's not sure he is ready for a relationship with George Crabtree senior – as Murdoch knows, "Fathers can be complicated."
- George has "had lunch once a month" with his mother Gracie Brooks for the past few years before she moved to Sudbury, Ontario.
- Henry Higgins thinks his life got a lot better when he started ignoring his own parents because "Parents just make you worry about all the stuff they worry about".
- Inspector Brackenreid shares with George Crabtree Sr. the "Learning you have a child, sort of puts you on the back foot, somewhat,"(ep.1209) and twice mentions that he once planned to build a subway (ep.405).
- Thomas makes an investment (again), without telling Margaret, in the 'The Toronto of Tomorrow' project, and this time he includes the Constabulary's Widows and Orphans Fund.
- Murdoch uses his usual mental walk-through of the crime scene.
- Lawyer Effie Newsome pulls off an impressive gambit, saving both Crabtree men a large sum of money.
- This episode takes place in Toronto 1907 – Edward VII (Albert Edward;1841-1910) is King of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland and of the British Dominions beyond the Seas.
- The original Ferris Wheel, a landmark for the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago, was rebuilt on Chicago's North Side and operated there until 1904, when it was dismantled and transported by rail to the 1904 World's Fair. This is the second reference to it, the first was in Excitable Chap.
- Cleveland is renown for their music halls and is the home of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
- The historic roots of cyclothymic disorders – part of the sub-affective spectrum – are essentially Greek. In 1877, German psychiatrist Ewald Hecker introduced the term 'cyclothymia' (sy-kloe-THIE-me-uh). Cyclothymia appears to be a likely precursor or ingredient of the construct of bipolar I and II disorders.
- Maisonneuve is a neighbourhood in Montreal, Canada, situated on the eastern half of the island, generally to the south and southwest of the city's Olympic Stadium, built in the mid-1970s.
- Neither Dr. Julia Ogden nor Detective Watts appear in this episode.
- George Crabtree senior has a stand-out catch phrase, "terribly terrific".
- Orginally set to film in London, Ont., until schedules changed to have Colm Feore on board to play Crabtree Sr. – parts of this episode were filmed at The Scottish Rite in Hamilton instead.
