 Characters introduced
Kogoro is invited to a party for the release of a game which stars himself. While there, Conan runs into a man who uses the alias Tequila and learns that he plans to meet with Gin and Vodka. Conan follows Tequila to the bathroom where an explosion occurs and kills the man. Conan investigates the explosion and realizes that it was a murder attempt but the wrong person was killed.

 Continuity error
By the time that this story was told in the manga, Conan had a second encounter with Gin and Vodka (learning their names in the process), as well as learning about the organization. In the anime, however, The Shinkansen's Bomb Case and The Strange Person Hunt Murder Case omitted ties to The Organization and its members. Thus Conan at this point in the anime shouldn't know the names of the men who shrank him, or their organization. The anime fixes this problem in Diplomat Murder Case, where Heiji Hattori hints at the names of both Gin and Vodka. This makes it plausible for Conan to recall their names in this episode.
 Translation changes
- The names of the characters in the Funimation Dub are:
- Hideaki Nakajima - Henry Nelbit
- Koji Ueda - Kelvin Tug
- Hironobu Takeshita - Charles Shore
- Ishikawa - George Fuman
- Daikoku Building - Apollo Building
Conan upon hearing Kogoro mentioning having some Gin and Vodka, recalls that Heiji Hattori telling him that the two men in black who he met went by the name of Gin and Vodka. In the Japanese Version, he merely recalls that those were the two men responsible for his condition.
This particular error originated in the Dub for Diplomat Murder Case. Presumably, this was done as a means of explaining how Conan knows the codename of the two men due to their omission in several episodes, but Heiji wouldn't discover Conan's secret until Holmes Freak Murder Case.
- Due to Viz Media originally referring to Gin and Vodka as Kaspar and Melkior (Volume 4), their translation of this story in Volume 12 has Conan's recollection of the two brought on by Kogoro mentioning that he had Kaspar Gin and Melkior Vodka. Following this, Volume 18 is the final time that Viz continued with altered names.
- This is the first episode where the murderer kills the wrong person and instead kills someone else unintentionally.
- In the English dub, the explosion in the Apollo Building killed 23 people, some of whom could not be identified by authorities.
