Notable Quotes

Brackenreid to Murdoch: "Well, that's the trouble with sons, Murdoch. You never know what you're going to get."
Margaret to Thomas: "I am not ashamed of my family.."


  • Jonny Harris as George Crabtree is missing from the end credits of this episode.
  • Joe Falcone reminds Murdoch, "Mr. Leone testified against us. My father's been rotting in prison ever since." But in From Buffalo With Love some years later, Detective Harvey Walker reveals that Gerry Sachs gave evidence against Giuseppe Falcone with the implication that it was Sachs who helped send Falcone to prison. Whether these events are mutually exclusive is arguable, but they appear to be in conflict which is perplexing.
