  • Four unnamed citizens of Glenley


  • The episode's title is a play on words from the film title "Dr. Strangelove, or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb", a black comedy film which satirizes the nuclear scare.
  • This episode marks the first appearance of Kim Poirier as Gwen Hayes, a series regular role. This means Gwen is the only one of season 1's main cast not to appear in the show's pilot.
