Main Characters in this Episode
- Goof (continuity error): While Rollin is surreptitiously removing his disguise in the church, he peels of a false left breast pocket from his jacket and tucks it inside. Moments later when he pulls off the false left lapel, that pocket is back on the front of his jacket.
- Goof (continuity error): When Qaisette opens the folder containing the information about Jim Phelps, there are two pages in it, both with pictures of Jim on them. In a close-up, Qaisette chooses the paper with Jim's picture centered on it, but in the next shot, we see him holding the second paper with Jim's picture in the upper left hand corner.
- The title refers to an heir who, short of a fundamental change in the situation, cannot be displaced from inheriting.
