FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Goof:  When Fuller is explaining how Ioki went about obtaining his alias, Ioki quips that he "should have been a detective", to which Fuller retorts "You soon might not be."  This implies Ioki is currently a detective, which is untrue since he re-takes the detectives exam in the the fourth season episode "Say It Ain't So, Pete."

    • The episode "Christmas in Saigon" was based on the actual experiences of Dustin Nguyen's escape in Vietnam. However, the difference between the episode and Nguyen's real life is that Nguyen's parents survived (whereas in the episode, his parents died).
