    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • In this episode Ray is very uncomfortable with the dead body. In a later episode, Dead Guy Running, he doesn't seem to have a problem.

    • QUOTES (8)

      • Ray Kowalski: Fraser, the wolf can't stay here.
        Benton Fraser: Why not?
        Ray Kowalski: Because of the... uh... turtle.
        Benton Fraser: Dief has no interest in the turtle.
        Ray Kowalski: The turtle and the wolf are natural enemies, Fraser. Grrr.

      • Nada: The white raven waits for the right wave.
        Benton Fraser: I see.
        Nada: The white raven waits for the right wave.
        Benton Fraser: Oh. Ahm, ahem..., Rusty Ruggles rode his wet reindeer through the red window.
        Nada: ...you play games?
        Benton Fraser: I thought we were, yes.

      • Benton Fraser: (to Dief) Don't look at me like that. I only have the one ticket. Aside from which, what do you care? You're deaf.

      • Ray Kowalski: Don't talk to the dog in public, Fraser. It embarrasses me.

      • Ray Kowalski: Hey, you think I'm losing my hair?
        Benton Fraser: No, it's full-bodied and bushy, Ray.

      • Benton Fraser: You know, I hope Francesca doesn't mind me using her station.
        Ray Kowalski: Yeah, right. She'll never wash those keys again.

      • Benton Fraser: You know, Ray, it's sad. It's sad and pathetic to watch a grown man gloat over besting a dog.
        Ray Kowalski: You have your hobbies, I have mine.

      • Ray Kowalski: Don't you ever sleep?
        Benton Fraser: Well, of course I do, Ray. As a matter of fact, I just had a thirty second nap coming down the stairs, it was very refreshing.

    • NOTES (1)

      • Guest star Martha Burns (Nada) is the real-life wife of lead actor Paul Gross. She'll appear again in the series finale Call of the Wild, in a different role.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • The episode title refers to the gag in Mad Magazine, where two spies- one in black and one in white- go to extreme, Rube Goldbergian lengths to kill each other and those plans usually backfire.
