  • Trivia

    • Near the beginning of the episode, there's a meeting in Gee's office with Gee, Pembleton, Bayliss, Howard, Russert, Falsone and Gharty. When the meeting is finished they all walk out of the office, but Munch is there as well. He's wearing sunglasses like he was just outside, but he definately comes out of Gee's office door. If he wasn't in the office for the meeting, where did he come from?!

  • Quotes

    • Lt. Giardello: Bodies will fall. Phone still rings. We still fill out our daily grunt sheets and argue over overtime. Board still collects names. Red and black. And long after the cases blur and our long and our, long after the cases blur and fade entirely from our memory we still remember our own. I'm not gonna stand here and say Beau Felton was perfect. He had problems but we grant him special standing for a time he stood with us. He worked homicide. Thank you all for coming.

    • "Bodies still fall. The phone still rings. We still fill out our daily run sheets and argue about overtime. The board still collects names... in red & black. But long after the cases blur, and fade entirely from our memory… we still remember our own." -G (at Felton's memorial ceremony)

    • "Girls, Girls! You're both pretty!!" -Munch (to Gharty & Falsone)
