The slogan on the back of the ME team's bowling shirts is "You stab'em, we slab 'em".
William G.J. Aylward, the man who played attorney Ezra Greenfield, was at one time a reporter for the NBC affiliate in Washington, DC.
In the episode, there were two commercials of note. One featured Kyle Secor advertising Homicide's reruns appearing on Court TV. The second featured NBC asking viewers to go to nbcsurvey.com and "tell us how much you love Homicide". This online questionnaire asked viewers their opinion on this episode and their general viewing habits. The survey ran until midnight the following Sunday night and might hold the fate of the series in its grasp. So I hope you took the time to fill it out. As it stands now, it is uncertain whether there will be another season, reports on the Internet state that the overhead rigging that has been on the ceiling of the Waterfront for the past few years has been removed. It was never removed between seasons in the past. More information (furnished to me by someone who was on the scene of the rigging removal) reported that it was done because the new owner of the Waterfront needed it removed so that an estimate could be performed for replacing the tile ceiling with a tin one. Time will tell.
