    • Maddy [ answering phone ]: Yes? Who's that? Gino? Oh really, how are you both? What kind of ideal arrangement? I beg your… take it in turns to sleep with me? Am I hearing right? Gino: What? No! We were just saying, sorry the other night was such a cock up. If you wanted to get together any time for a beer or whatever. No agenda. Maddy:You have got some nerve the pair of you, asking me to share my body with two men on a rota basis… I’ll think about it. Promising nothing mind. OK. Bye. Jonathan: You know there's a word for what you are. Maddy: Predictable.

    • Jonathan: Quietly get on with things? I’m standing here in the middle of the D-Day landings. What the hell is going on? Heidi: You were fine about it last night. When I said – our own mill had just fallen through and if I got straight on to the director and did some rescheduling would tomorrow be okay to knock off a few exteriors? Jonathan: When did you say that? Heidi: Last night. I said if you don’t mind us going upstairs and humping our gear about. You said no problem. Jonathan: Yes, I obviously misheard you.

    Trivia (1)

    • Goof: When Masson is discovered in his office, having been shot in the chest, there is much blood around, most of which is centred on a picture on the wall. Given the heights of the picture and the guy who has been shot, it would be impossible for the concentration of blood to be on the picture unless he'd been shot in the head and the bullet had been a through and through (as they say on CSI).

    Allusions (1)

    • Title: The Eyes of Tiresias A reference to the Greek myth of Tiresias, one of the priests of Zeus. There is mention in the episode of his powers of second sight. According to legend he was blinded, either by Hera (for revealing the secret of sexual enjoyment) or by Athena (for seeing her bathing naked). Whichever version you 'believe', they could not restore his sight, but he was given the gift of second sight as a compensation and became a seer.
