- The alternate title of the musical The Pirates of Penzance (which is quoted by Hotch during Haley's eulogy) is The Slave of Duty, fittingly enough. The title of the episode can also serve as an accurate description of Hotch's personality, in the sense that he is heavily dedicated to his job (which is a theme in his subplot in the episode).
- Patty Malcolm, the actress who portrays Ann Herron, previously appeared in Criminal Minds, starring as a caterer in the Season Five episode The Performer.
