* ActingForTwo: More like Acting For Five, since "Inheritance of Death" has Dick Van Dyke playing Mark Sloan, millionaire Jonathan Nash, and his two sons. ''[[BrainBleach And]]'' [[BrainBleach his daughter.]]
** He also portrays his own IdenticalStranger in "Gangland".
* ActorAllusion: In one episode, Dick Van Dyke as Doctor Sloan is walking through the corridors of the hospital. As he turns a corner, he passes an internal window through which we see, not a medical procedure in progress, but a broadcast booth in black and white. It's a clip of Van Dyke in ''TheDickVanDykeShow''. He walks on without seeming to notice.
