    I love this episode how hanson is all cocky becasue he is undercover with "his people" and then he totally falls on his backside when penhall fits in better with the preps. I do feel sorry for hanson in a way though when the guys start chanting state college at him lol. Ioki is awesome as the chauffer in this episode as well he looks like he could pull off being some massive master criminal really well with the right situation. I was pleased in the last scene with the showdown gun shooting I thought that guy had gotten away with it by grassing on all his friends, I was pleased justice was served.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • TRIVIA: Guest star, Josh Brolin was actually the network's choice to play Officer Tom Hanson but producer Patrick Hasburgh wanted Johnny Depp instead.

    • In the episode's final scene Vinnie Morgan threatens Taylor Rolador with a gun. On the DVD version of the episode, a gunshot goes off but during the FX rerun of the episode, there was no sound of a gunshot.

    • In the original airing of the episode, Timbuk 3 was given the musical credits but they were removed from the DVD version of this episode. Their music was also taken out of all scenes except for the final scene between Vinnie Morgan and Taylor Rolador where the background music for "Life is Hard" is played.

  • QUOTES (2)

    • Hanson: So how was the trip?
      Penhall: Uneventful. Aside from them making me walk through customs with a kilo of cocaine in a false bottom suitcase!
      Hanson: You what? You mulled it through?!

    • Female Student: Is that what they tossed you out of Westminster for?
      Penhall: No, that was more of an honor code situation.
      Taylor (gesturing towards Hanson): That dork violated the honor code?
      Penhall: Well, he's really quite corrupt once you get to know him.
