  • Trivia

    • During the episode Michael has to track down a pair of sneakers called Sport Top Gym Soles. When he finally reaches the prison, we see a close up and the sneakers shown are Reebok with the logo whited out.

    • When Michael gets ready to jump, Nelson can be seen already running down the stairs in front of Michael. However, when the camera view changes and Michael jumps down, Nelson is just reaching the steps.

  • Quotes

    • Michael: Hi there, green eyes.
      Bonnie: Me? Jealous of my friend in his hour of glory? (glances over) She is kind of cute.
      Michael: Yeah, but can she reprogram a range finder?

    • Devon: We've established the Foundation Julie Rogers Training Fund.
      (she hugs him, getting chalk on his jacket, irritating him)
      Michael: Take it easy, Devon. You could always establish the Foundation Dry Cleaning Fund.
      Devon: Har-bloody-har.
