  • Good episode

    We learn a lot about the characters in this episode. We finally meet Garrett's daughter and get to see him as a parent. We also meet a former flame of Jordan's, so we get to see a glimpse of her love life. Not surprisingly, she bolted when she felt that she lost control. The murder plot was so-so, but the character development was worth it.

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • This episode has a small plot goof. When Jordan's old flame visits, he comes to her apartment. However, the episodes before and after this still have her living with her dad. Jordan does not get her own apartment until the end of Episode 6.

    • Nigel says that the coffee found on the body is Colombian Sumatra. This would have to be a blend of coffee instead of a specific bean. Sumatra is a place coffee is grown as is Colombia. Coffee beans are either Arabica or Robusta. Note: This could be a Sumatran variety transplanted to and grown in Colombia. The number of coffee varieties has been increased over the years, even if in name only.

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Tyler: I just came to give you back your Swiss Army Knife…I lost the tweezers.

    • Jordan: You shoot a person once you just want 'em dead, but four times, that's love.

    • Two Guys: (Outside a strip club) Whoa, whoa Trixie, at least you can tell us what kind of toys you got in the bag?
      Jordan: Trust me, you guys don't want to know.
      Two Guys: Oh we definitely want to know.
      Jordan: Ok, this an f-tech temp probe, I stick it in dead people's livers. This end slides in right under the ribcage like that, barely leaves a mark and this end here tells you how warm they are, every degree below 98.6 is 1 hour they've been pushing up daisies. Pretty hot huh? Nighty-Night boys.

    • Abby: My history teacher caught me and this guy messing around in the supply closet... They're making a really big deal out of it...
      Garrett: What do you mean 'messing around'?

    • During the scene where Jordan is beating on the vending machine and Garret is trying to speak to the hotel his ex-wife is staying at, Jordan takes the phone and begins to speak in Italian. When she is finished, Garret gives her a puzzled look and she explains that when she studied abroad, she picked up some things from a guy named Paolo. In real life, Jill Hennessy's husband's name is Paolo and she learned Italian from him.

  • ALLUSIONS (3)

    • Jordan: Now who is the artist formerly known as Robert Munson?



      In 1993, an American musician named Prince changed his name to an unpronounceable symbol. Until he changed it back in 2000, everyone referred to him as "the artist formerly known as Prince".

    • Born to Run

      The title is taken from the Bruce Springsteen song of the same name.

    • Blazing Saddles
      Jordan: Badges? We don't need no stinkin' badges.
      In the movie Blazing Saddles, Headly LeMar (Harvey Corman) is recruting outlaws to run off the citizens of Rock Ridge. When he hands badge to a group of mexican banditos, one of them toss the badge away and says, "Badges! we don't need no stinking badges!"
