Amy had a rare heroic moment in this episode. Face was facing a firing squad, and tried unsuccessfully to ignite a pool of gasoline with a cigarette. Amy shot it with a flare gun, causing an explosion and saving Face's life.

Even though the episode was first broadcast in 1983 it took place in 1978.[1]
