This episode of "Insight" also featured Gary Collins as a scientist and Brooke Bundy as his wife. The young couple was debating whether they should conceive a child naturally, or use the new scientific method of "cloning" and clone a genius such as a Supreme Court Justice's DNA to impart on their child.

Edward Andrews played the father of Brooke Bundy's character, and Edwards' wife was played by Sandra Gould (a character actress best known for her role as "Gladys Kravits" on "Bewitched").

An interesting episode well ahead of its time for moral debate, since it aired more than two decades before scientists in Scotland successfully cloned "Dolly the Sheep."
