Season 1 Episode 1

To Mar a Stall

Aired Saturday 9:00 AM Sep 14, 2002 on ABC



  • Trivia

    • When Robin is telling the delivery crew where the next batch of stalls are suppose to be, her pen is in her right hand. When Fillmore and Third confront her on being Stainless, it's moved to her left hand.

    • Continuity Error: Near the beginning of the episode, Anza mentioned that Stainless' weapons of choice were red, black and green markers. Where did Anza see black and green words?

      Also, if Anza is right, then Tommy could've been Stainless as he uses a black marker.

    • Wouldn't the stain on Robin Spencer's arm be staight or run down all but the bottom/back of her arm? It's wavy.

    • Maybe the guard relaxed procedures because Fillmore and Ingrid had already visited Julian twice. Either way, it was a costly error.

    • When visiting Randall Julian in solitary confinement for the second time, an almost stub of a pencil falls out of Ingrid's backpack--allowing Julian to let loose with the graffiti (not to mention escape). Yet the first time the two officers went to see Julian they were extensively questioned and dispossessed of any writing implements they may have. No such search a second time?

    • When in Randall Julian's room, Ingrid's mouth is slightly dislocated.

  • Quotes

    • (Fillmore places Vellejo's fishing rod over by a wall, Vellejo suddenly opens the door.)
      Vellejo: (snaping sound) What's goin' on? Tell me you got Stainless.
      Tehama: (holding Robin) Right here chief.
      Vellejo: Looks like I'm gonna be able to fish in peace after all. (sees Fillmore and Third's shocked expression) What? What is it? looks behind the door FILLMORE!

    • (Interrogating Frankie Polk)
      Ingrid: You must have been upset when you lost the space for your club.
      Frankie: No...Not really. I find offices to be creatively confining. The only thing that truly upsets me is the lack of beauty around us.
      (Frankie picks up two buckets of fuschia paint and pours the paint on his head)
      Frankie: I call it "The Interrogation of Self".

    • Vallejo: Is that - for me?
      Anza: Got your name on it.
      [Vallejo opens box and a springy fish pops out. He pulls out a "Singing Fish"]
      Singing Fish Model: Row Row Row your boat gently down the stream, merrily merrily merrily merrily life is but a dream.
      Glee Club: [chimes in] Life is but a Dreeeaaammm!

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Robin Spencer:
      Robin Spencer bears a creepy resemblance to Tracey Flick, a student overly dedicated to perfection in the film "Election".

    • Randall Julian:
      Randall's confinement and interaction with the Safety Patrol officers while in confinement is based on Hannibal Lecter in "The Silence of the Lambs."

    • Cornelius Fillmore:
      Fillmore is named after The Fillmore in San Francisco, one of the most important venues in the history of Jazz and Rock & Roll.
