Things of NoteEdit
- This is a crossover episode which combines Charlie's Angels and another Aaron Spelling Leonard Goldberg-produced series, The Love Boat. Guest stars: Bert Convy, Dick Sargent, and the cast of The Love Boat.
- It was never explained why a cruise ship leaving Los Angeles was almost immediately in the Caribbean. The time elapsed seemed far too short for a trip through the Panama Canal, and there was no plot-related necessity for the story to unfold in the Atlantic instead of the Pacific.
- With the arrival of Shelley Hack, the opening credits undergo a major change. Jaclyn Smith is now the top-billed of the three actresses, followed by Cheryl Ladd and Hack. For Hack's part of the "very hazardous duties" montage, the credits reuse the same gag used for Jill Monroe in the first season, with a pile of forms being dropped on Tiffany's desk.
