  • Episode Description
  • Nick's feelings of responsibility for the death of a man he was supposed to protect in a "sting" operation cause him to lie about actually seeing the murderer pull the trigger. In addition to the problem of having to appear in court to testify in broad daylight, Nick's desire to see justice done struggles with his conscience. He calls up memories of an incident from the past in which a woman gives false testimony in court, condemning to death a man Nick knows to be innocent, since he saw his fellow vampire Janette commit the crime.moreless

    • Nick: (to Schanke) If I could tap into your nervous energy I could light up a whole city.

    • Schanke: Since we're partners I'll give you the short version. Nick: Who says you're not merciful?

    • Schanke: I never went for those tan guys. Who's the guy who did that vampire movie? He used to date Lyndon Johnson's daughter... something Bird? Hamilton. George Hamilton, that's what it was. A tan vampire! Now there's a jerk!

    • (while searching a pornographer's office) Nick: Anyone find anything? Schanke: Some interesting material, but so far nothing to do with Betty Gilroy. Nick: Keep looking. Schanke: Why, someone you know having a bachelor party aboard a fully manned nuclear sub?

    • Schanke: Nice suit, Captain. Stonetree: Thanks. My son made it.

    Allusions (2)

    • Nick: It's about a 40-foot gorilla! This is an allusion to the movie King Kong, whose "star" is a gigantic gorilla. There have been several movie versions of King Kong throughout the years.

    • Schanke: It's either that or I've got the Six Million Dollar Man for a partner. The Six Million Dollar Man was a 1970s television series starring Lee Majors as a man who had parts of his body replaced with bionic implants, which caused him to do extraordinary things.
