    • QUOTES (5)

      • Ray Kowalski: I'm not going to jail. The food... the conversation... sexual hijinks, I can't handle it.

      • Ray Kowalski: You came back emptyhanded.
        Benton Fraser: But not emptytrousered.

      • Francesca Vecchio: You smell great.
        Benton Fraser: That would be the neats-foot oil.
        Francesca Vecchio: You wear neat's-foot oil?
        Benton Fraser: On my Sam Browne,... My belt.

      • Ray Kowalski: (watching curling on T.V.) Anything that moves that slowly is not a sport.
        Renfield Turnbull: Not a sport?
        Ray Kowalski: This is not a sport, it's housework.
        Renfield Turnbull: It's a calling.
        Ray Kowalski: It may be a pastime, it may even be a hobby, but it's definitely not a sport.
        Renfield Turnbull: (jumping up) Do you want to fight?
        Ray Kowalski: Over curling?
        Renfield Turnbull: Yes. What if I made fun of baseball?
        Ray Kowalski: (jumping up as well) All right.

      • Jack Huey: Okay, Fraser, don't give me a hard time. I have a warrant for his arrest.
        Benton Fraser: I'm afraid that Ray is already under arrest, sir.
        Jack Huey: By who?
        Benton Fraser: By whom.
        Thomas Dewey: By whom?
        Benton Fraser: By me.
        Jack Huey: Fraser, you're a Mountie. You can't arrest anybody unless you're in Canada.
        Benton Fraser: I am in Canada.
        Jack Huey: No, no, see, this is Chicago.
        Benton Fraser: Well, you would think so, wouldn't you, but you would be wrong.

    • NOTES (2)

      • Oddly, the style that Fraer reads Ray his right is US American, not Canadian. He says: "You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to an attorney. If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be appointed to you without charge. Do you understand these rights?"
        The Canadian style would be something along the lines of: "You are under arrest for (charge), do you understand? You have the right to retain and instruct counsel without delay. We will provide you with a toll-free telephone lawyer referral service, if you do not have your own lawyer. Anything you say can be used in court as evidence. Do you understand? Would you like to speak to a lawyer?"

      • This is the only episode that features Ray Kowalski (Callum Keith Rennie) with flat hair, as opposed to the experimental hair in all the other episodes. In the dvd commentary of Call of the Wild, Paul Gross explains that Asylum was the first episode that they shot together, and that they changed the hair afterward. He adds that Rennie, while fearless and low-maintenance as an actor, was very neurotic about his hairdo. Each day started with a 15 minutes discussion about his hair. After that, the day went smoothly.
