Appearances and Mentions

Toronto the Bad

  • Peter Guthrie takes Higgins' cab some mornings to work, "Less expensive than a hansom, and - the conversation's better".
  • When questioned at Scott's Diner by Murdoch and Brackenreid about the taxi cab ride, Guthrie describes it as frustrating – stuck in a car full of drunken louts jostling about; He gets enough of that in his diner. He points out that at night Toronto has a certain amount of animosity, just the way animals are. He knows from his experience owning a dinner that opens at four in the morning, "The people that come through that door at that time aren't coming from church – nothing good happens after midnight."
  • Peter Guthrie did recognize one man in the cab: He wore an eyepatch and he's been in the diner carrying a knife; He's not afraid to use it, "went after a man in that very booth". Frank is his name. "Hang them all, Detective. Let God sort them out."
