  • Season 6 Episode 23: Fallen Heroes (2)

  • The doughnut that Kellerman is eating disappears when he is talking to Pembleton & Falsone about the Mahoney shooting, then reappears when Falsone hands him the clip-board to write his confession on.

  • Season 6 Episode 22: Fallen Heroes (1)

  • Lewis: …so the bear says, 'You didn't really come here to hunt, did you?'

    Lewis says this just before he gets the radio call that Junior Bunk has been arrested. This is the punch line to an off-color joke Lewis tells more than once in the series (the joke itself is never heard). It was first heard in episode 25/3-12 "The City That Bleeds", again in 66/5-11, "The Documentary" with Lewis telling it to Kellerman on the way to the Waterfront, and in episode 68/5-13, "Have A Conscience", Kellerman asks Lewis about the joke, with Kellerman saying the line.

  • The Gunfight Tally:
    Bunk: 1 - Hits 1st uniform, killed
    Bunk: 2-6 - All shots hit 2nd uniform, killed
    Bunk: 7-9 - Lewis shuts off lights
    Kellerman: 1-4 - Miss
    Bunk: 10-11 - Miss
    Kellerman: 5-8 - Miss
    Bunk: 12-15 - Miss
    Lewis: 1-4 - Miss
    Kellerman: 9-17 - Miss
    Bunk: 16 - Hits Gharty, left chest
    Ballard: 1-4 - Miss
    Bunk: 17 - Hits Ballard, right ankle
    Bunk: 18-20 - All shots hit 3rd uniform, killed

    Gee, Kellerman, Lewis & Bayliss: 14 shots at Junior Bunk. Some of the shots were heard off-screen and cannot be attributed to a shooter; it is also not clearly shown how many bullets actually hit Junior Bunk. Five chest wounds are visible as he starts to fall; three back wounds (possibly exits) are visible after he is down.

    Pembleton was present and shown at the end of the shootout with his arm recovering from firing position but his gun was not visible, nor was he shown firing.

  • Stivers and Falzone's case leads them to the old "Pony" Johnson case, where they find in the file that Munch was the primary. In reality that case belonged to Howard and Felton (see episode "A Dog and Pony Show" and "And the Rockets Dead Glare" from season 1).

  • Season 6 Episode 7: Subway

  • Right before Lewis and Falsone stop the female jogger, John Lange's girlfriend can be seen running by right behind Lewis. The scene is at 36:57 on the DVD. Compare her clothes to the ones in her other scenes, it is definitely Lange's girlfriend.

  • That's not a goof. That just means that Falsone and Lewis weren't paying attention or think it's a wild goose chase.

  • This was not a goof. As I remember, Lewis and Falsone actually stop the jogger and asks if she knows the victim. She says that she doesn't, and then jogs away. Lewis and Falsone don't comment on what has happened and the jogger just doesn't want to be bothered. This was the writer's little touch of irony.

  • The jogger that Lewis and Falsone are supposed to find runs right by them in the park.

  • Season 6 Episode 5: Baby It's You (2)

  • In the opening credits, Sam Waterston's name is spelled "Sam Waterson." Waterston is missing the second "t."
