  • Donna dances...more than once! I love this episode. Donna can talk street talk and sing the works of Rogers and Hammerstein. What a diverse person!

    The relationship between 'Aunt Max' and cousin Kyle is developing. Kyle still has some growing to do, but he is on his way. There is hope. Somehow, he knows just what his auntie needed. Boy, did she need a touch of kindness and reassurance that she was making an effort for something. Yes, the 'ice cream lady' is doing some good.



    Bruce, the all-knowing, gives Judge Gray some advice. He knew that Judge Keeler was taking bribes, but Bruce knew enough to keep his mouth shut. He knew he needed to stay in the system and turning his back was the way to do so.



    On the personal front, Bruce is breaking the ice with a woman. Boy, did he need the outlet. Amy certainly is not going to advance the relationship...yet.moreless

  • ALLUSIONS (3)

    • Bruce mentions Andrew Lloyd Webber while he complains about Donna singing show tunes in the hallway. Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber is a well-known and very successful British composer of musicals. Included in his body of work are the musicals Cats, Evita, Joseph and the Technicolor Dreamcoat, and Phantom of the Opera.

    • Amy refers to Bruce as her own "Jiminy Cricket". This is an allusion to the fictional character who was Pinocchio's appointed conscience. Jiminy first appeared in the 1940 animated movie Pinocchio that was produced by the Walt Disney Corporation.

    • The title of this episode is an allusion to the novel "Crime and Punishment" by Russian author Fyodor Dostoevsky.
