  1. Richard Belzer makes his second appearance on the show (he was briefly seen as a guest star in S.O.B.s), this time as "Professor" Munch, who is in fact part of a police sting operation. On both Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and Homicide: Life on the Street he portrays Det. John Munch. In light of the appearance in S.O.B.s as himself, it's unclear if he is appearing as "himself" or Munch.
  2. The Saddam Hussein lookalikes are played by Al No' Mani, David Kavandi and James Evans. The role of Achmed is uncredited.
  3. Wayne Jarvis makes his second (and final) appearance in Season 3. His first was in Fakin' It. This is the first time his Japanese assistant Cho (Mitsu) has a speaking role.
