    • TRIVIA (2)

      • Steven and Elyse were married May, 1964.

      • The episode begins with Mallory watching CHiPs. CHiPs was a Highway Patrol show that aired from 1977 to 1983. It was in its final season when this episode aired. When Mallory advises Alex that Erik is cute, she's talking about Erik Estrada, who played Officer Frank "Ponch" Poncherello.

    • QUOTES (5)

      • Elyse: Has Ned done something illegal?
        Carlyle: Ma'am, the FBI doesn't go looking for people unless they've done something illegal. It's a new policy.

      • Ned: (making a furtive phone call) The falcon has landed. The fat man walks alone. Repeat: The falcon has landed. The fat man walks alone.

      • Alex: looking inside the snow globe at the miniature skyscrapers You know, one of these days, I'm going to work inside one of these buildings.
        Mallory: You'll be a perfect fit.

      • Elyse: Mr. Carlyle, Do you really believe that my brother stole that money? I mean, he's not the type.
        Carlyle: I'll mention that to the guys in New York. But to be honest with you: I think they're going to want to push ahead with the case anyway.

      • Carlyle (on what would happen if it turned out that, hypothetically speaking, the Keatons were lying to him about where Ned is): Well, hypothetically speaking, you would be hypothetically arrested for harboring a known criminal, and hypothetically sent to a very real jail.
