Trivia: Christian Kane had asked that if he was ever going to "get my a kicked," he wanted them to hire one of his best friends, actor Clayne Crawford, who used to choreograph fights with Chris in his basement when they were growing up. All that prior "practice" helps make these fight scenes superb. (00:27:00)
Trivia: When shooting the original waiting room scene, Nate was alone. The director was worried that no one would be able to tell it was a waiting room, so they went looking for someone to join him. They happened to find Jonathan Frakes, who was prepping for a Leverage episode he was to direct. Although he wasn't doing any acting in those days, he played the injured man in the waiting room.
Trivia: Eliot Spencer interrupts Nate Ford's practice shooting after he has tries to discourage Nate from killing Victor Dubenich. Nate fires two shots from his fathers five shot gun. At the conclusion of what Eliot says, Nate turns and fires four more shots from the gun - one extra bullet than the gun would actually hold. He confirms near the end of the episode that his gun holds five bullets. (00:24:40 - 00:35:55)TwisTTwiTcH

Trivia: Someone on Leverage's writing staff is a Dr. Who fan. When the team is on the escalator at the airport, Hardison asks Nate over the ear piece, "What IDs have you got on you?" Nate replies, "Let's see, we've got Peter Davison, Sylvester McCoy, and I have a Tom Baker." Sophie chirps, "Oh! I have a Baker as well!" Nate and Sophie then board the plane as Mr. and Mrs. Tom Baker. This was the first of what would become a running gag: the Tom Baker alias and several other Who references recur throughout the series. (00:12:00)Jean G
