    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • About 7:30 minutes in, in the beginning of the scene in which Fraser and Ray drive Stella and Orsini home at night, you can see a reflection of Draco's (Diefenbaker's) trainer in the car window.

    • QUOTES (8)

      • Benton Fraser: (when Ray is frustrated about Stella) Well, you know, I understand, or as you might say, I overstand...

      • Benton Fraser: (standing in front of Stella's door) Ray, Stella, I hate to intrude, but I can hear the music, I know you're in there. (knocking) Ray!
        Ray Kowalski: (pulls open the door) Fraser, this is the wrong moment for a visit. In fact, of all the wrong moments for a visit, this is the wrongest.
        Benton Fraser: No, Ray, I know this is, believe me. It's just that if Stella's life were not at risk...
        Ray Kowalski: Come on in. (shuts door in Fraser's face)
        Benton Fraser: Ray.
        Ray Kowalski: (pulls door back open) Sorry, come on in.

      • Stella Kowalski: What do you want, Ray?
        Ray Kowalski: (voice over for his thoughts) I want you. You know we were put on this planet to love one another. We can't throw that away, that's something that you know and... (spoken aloud) I know.

      • Benton Fraser: Well, I suppose a brisk walk in the night air will do me good.
        Harding Welsh: It's gotta be 20 blocks.
        Benton Fraser: I know, but if I go the long way I'll get some exercise.

      • Ray Kowalski: (talking about his ex-wife and her boyfriend) She spent the night with him.
        Benton Fraser: Well, now we don't know that. I mean that may be the case but on the other hand perhaps she just came by for a breakfast date.
        Ray Kowalski: A breakfast date?
        Benton Fraser: Well sure, people have luncheon dates, dinner dates, why not a breakfast date?
        Ray Kowalski: Because it's um... What's the word? Stupid.
        Benton Fraser: What's so stupid about that? I mean eating together is eating together. I don't see how the time of day is relevant.
        Ray Kowalski: It's relevant because people go on dates to get into bed, not out of them.
        Benton Fraser: That's an extremely narrow interpretation...
        Ray Kowalski: You know, Fraser, if I want to know how to track musk ox across the tundra, fine. But when it comes to the dating habits of the Stella, I happen to be an expert.

      • Stella Kowalski: (in the car, with Dief in the middle of the back seat) Uh, would your wolf be more comfortable if I sat in the middle?
        Benton Fraser: Well perhaps. He does ordinarily enjoy a window seat.

      • Benton Fraser: (asking Ray for spontaneous associations) Uh, chain saw.
        Ray Kowalski: Massacre.
        Benton Fraser: Closet.
        Ray Kowalski: What kind of question is that?
        Benton Fraser: It's nothing untoward. It's just that if I say "closet" one person might say brooms and another person might say carpentry.

      • Benton Fraser: (answers to a Rorschach test) A criminal.
        Psychiatrist: Good. Now this one?
        Benton Fraser: An officer of the law.
        Psychiatrist: I see. And this one?
        Benton Fraser: Justice.
        Maggie Thatcher: Justice? I see three moths. How do you get Justice from three moths?

    • NOTES (1)

      • This episode marks the first appearance of Tom Melissis, as Huey's new partner Thomas E. Dewey. Huey's old partner was Louis Gardino. In reference to Donald Duck's nephews Huey, Dewey, and Louie, the detectives are called Duck Boys.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Stella Kowalski is also the name of Stanley Kowalski's wife in the Tennesse Williams play A Streetcar Named Desire. Like Stella on Due South, she comes from a rich family. In the play, Stanley Kowalski eventually rapes Stella's sister Blanche. However, Stella on Due South has no sister and Ray Kowalski isn't portrayed as violent toward women.
