Appearances and Mentions

Journey to the Centre of Toronto

  • George asks Emily to join him for lunch, "There's a man here from Coney Island selling 'hotdogs'. Apparently they were a big thing at the Buffalo World's Fair." But she already ate lunch, sandwiches were served at the lecture she attended with Dr. Ogden . The speaker was an ardent believer in the most unusual theory about people living inside the hollows of the earth. "Gravity alone would preclude the idea that the world could be hollow." In the end scene, they enjoy the hot dogs and George glimpses a possible mole person.

From Buffalo With Love

Well, I just wanted you to know I am an honourable man." But Nina informs him, "I don't want to marry you, George!"  The conversation takes place as they walk by the Hot Sausage stand. "I'm not that kind of woman...the marrying kind."

Concocting A Killer

  • Detectives Murdoch and Watts discuss the case while having Hot Sausages at the stand in the park.

Excitable Chap

  • The Sausage King is murdered and his stand destroyed on Parliament Street. Pendrick's assistant Ashmi saw the murdered Sausage King, Gerard Waldkirch, only the day before in Pendrick's laboratory. Pendrick hates being interrupted by time-wasting meals and the Sausage King delivers them directly to the lab. While a popular chap, the Sausage King did mention that someone had recently damaged his cart and that a man was "out to get him," according to Ashmi. In the end it was just a restaurant man in a spat with a sausage vendor–
