- This episode was originally intended to be the winter-season opener, which would establish how the team was managing without Sophie. However, TNT moved this episode and The Lost Heir Job to summer because of the popularity of Leverage, and The Runway Job became the winter opener instead.
- This episode is the first of several in which Gina Bellman makes brief appearances as Sophie, in this case via telephone, while on maternity leave, before returning to the cast late in The Maltese Falcon Job.
- This is the first job that the team takes without Sophie, and is the only job they do with a four person team.
- Nate uses the alias Sterling while playing the investigator from Kerrity's insurance company.
- Parker's flashbacks come from The Stork Job and a deleted scene from the pilot episode, The Nigerian Job.
