    • TRIVIA (4)

      • Three reasons for a mistrial are given in this episode: jury tampering; judicial prejudice; and attorney incompetence.

      • It is mentioned that the Fryes live at 5719 Liberty, and their zip code is 19198.

      • The deacon says he's four credits short of earning his law degree. But in an earlier episode he was visited by an old law school classmate, and it was mentioned that he did graduate, despite not doing well academically.

      • It is mentioned that the deacon has lost his previous ten cases and that the last case he won was in May 1974. However, it seems like he would've had more than ten cases in fifteen years. And we know that he won the case in season one where the church was sued for tainted food.
