    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Gary's wandering ear notch.

        There is a notch in his right ear that migrates to his left ear every now and then -- or disappears completely when he is seen in silhouette.

    • QUOTES (5)

      • Stilletto: When's the lawyer gettin' here?
        Tony DeHeluse: I'm sorry boss...
        Stilletto: When's the lawyer gettin' here, ya creep?!
        Tony DeHeluse: (Pointing to his very tiny ears) Sorry boss, I got nothin' here.
        (Stilletto slaps him)
        Stilletto: Tony DeHalip, when's the lawyer gettin' here?
        Tony DeHalip: (Spitting) Any minute boss.
        Stilletto: You're spittin' on me!
        Tony DeHalip: Sorry, boss.

      • Priest: We are gathered here today to join this woman-slash-thing with gills, and this rat-slash-attorney in holy matrimony.

      • Harrison: Anthony Stilletto is one of the most high profile Mafia bosses ever to run this city. The guy gets in more trouble than a busload of priests on the way to a boy scout jamboree. The man's a goldmine and I want him.
        Gary: I understand, sir. But what about Mr. Stilletto's current representation?
        Harrison: Poor sot accidently fell on a pickaxe.
        Gary: A pickaxe?
        Harrison: 47 times.

      • Gary: Sweet Jesus above, what?!

      • Gary: I've got to stop eating white trash.

    • NOTES (5)

      • Gary's Dream: Gary is bowling and rolls a strike. He is one strike away from "that elusive perfect game." His ball doesn't return, and Gary looks into the machine, getting his head cut off. Some idiot finds his head, and thinking it's a bowling ball, rolls a strike with it. Gary wakes up saying "I've got to stop eating white trash."

      • Neither Johnny Bugz nor Boots appear in this episode.

      • Angel dies when gunfire erupts between Stilletto's men and the Godfather's men. A stray shot breaks the pillar supporting a statue of Neptune. As the statue falls, Neptune's trident severs Angel's head.

      • There was Sardinian Pecorino cheese in the dinner that Gary had at Anthony Stilletto's place. Anthony was quite impressed that Gary could tell, but wouldn't hook him up with the source.

      • Bud delivered Bulgarian Sirene with sun dried tomato to Gary.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • The Godfather
        This episode takes it title from the movie, The Godfather. The line, "Luca Brazzi sleeps with the fishes", is mobspeak for killing someone and dumping them in some waterway.
