    • Reed: Pete, you know, sometimes you really confuse me. Malloy: You don't believe everything I say, do you? Reed: Pretty much, yeah. Malloy: Well you should, except when I'm talking through my hat!

    Trivia (2)

    • At 8:56 in the episode, as Malloy and Reed start to chase a drunk driver in a green Chevy SS through the studio backlot, the house used for the TV show The Munsters can be clearly seen center frame directly behind the cars as they drive past camera.

    • After giving Mr. Haines a breath test, Malloy remarks that he blew a 3-1. There is a problem with this reference in that if he's referring to .031, that's far below the usual legal requirement of .08 which is almost universally accepted as the point of impairment. If Malloy actually means a .31, that level is almost four times over the legal limit and technically the person with that much alcohol in their system would be dead or unconscious and near death with massive organ failure.
