Episode Summary

EDIT
A Case of Do or Die
AIRED:
Ballard and Bayliss are called to the scene of the mysterious death of a woman, whose body is found at the bottom of a forty-foot cliff. This victim was to be married the following morning. The two detectives work to determine whether the death was accidental or intentional (via murder or suicide). Meanwhile Sheppard and MGee begin investigating the death of a movie patron, whose body was discovered after the show ended and the theater cleared out. MGee mentions to Sheppard that his sister is about to have a baby, which means Gee is about to become a grandfather. Their investigation reveals that the movie patron was regularly loud and obnoxious and thus bad for business. When an overdose of a sedative is found in his bloodstream, the detectives question the theater owner, who was currently in litigation with the victim. Unfortunately for Ballard and Bayliss, their case remains unsolved.moreless

    • QUOTES (2)

      • Munch: Love, money, revenge. Of all the various and sundrie of motives for murder, talking in the movies is the most reasonable excuse.
        Mike Giardello: This Blowen probably died of natural causes.
        Munch: That 's what you think. Really the Gods of the old Hollywood are still up there in their Busby Berkley version of heaven smoking cigars, drinking rye on the rocks, looking down in disgust at this lonely picture we call our lives. They're all up there together. The Columbia goddess. The MGM lion. The Warner Brothers. They spot this schmuck, Blowen, making a mockery of their life's work, so what's left to do but write the offending actors final scene. The illuminious swede gets the letters of transit. Our loudmouth has a massive cardiac arrest. Farewell. Stay down. The end.

      • Bayliss Well one night is as random as the next really. Death obeys no set schedule.

      • Det. Rene Sheppard: Okay, I suppose that leaves us with only one thing to do…
        Det. Rene Sheppard & Agent Mike Giardello (together): Round up the usual suspects.

        The final line of Casablanca (1942), which is the second movie of the double feature at the Senator Theater, is "Major Strasser has been shot. Round up the usual suspects.". It was spoken by Captain Renault, played by Claude Rains. (The Marx Brothers film A Night in Casablanca (1946) starts with the roundup of the usual suspects.
