  • Simply put, this is the best episode of the series to date.

    10
    One of the few genuinely good episodes of this series. This is "Las Vegas" at its best and a perfect example of its potential. Series star Danny comes back home from the war, obviously a changed and scarred man. His friends see it, his boss sees it and most importantly his love sees it. It's Josh Duhamel's best acting on the show to date. If only the show would make more episodes like this one. A definite must see for anyone wondering if this show is worth a look.moreless
  • There was just something missing.

    8.9
    I'm a fan of the show and I really did like this episode but, I just feel like something was missing. The whole plot with Dumb and Dumber was very funny and interesting as usual for Las Vegas. I loved the subplot with Delinda and Sam over the morticians having their party in Mystique. I really loved to see Danny and Mary together again, I loved how he had to deal with the demons he faced in the Marines. I think they just ended that plot too quickly. I thought it was realistic what he was going through, not wanting to sleep, Ed was perfect sitting there telling him he'll watch his back. His urgency to marry Mary, I just wish they had extended Danny's problems here longer. I still rated it very high because I really did like this episode, I think Danny's story here was a little rushed.moreless

    Well i loved it that Danny came back from the war!!! He stands behind Mary and taps her on the shoulder when she turns around she can't believe he's back and of course they make out. Then Danny is a bit weird he's standing sometimes alone and then he's thinking about the war and something bothers him. He says to Mary he can't wait until dinner and he wants to be with her now!!! He meets Mary at her place and after Mary tells him she is not holding him to anything, HE PROPOSE to her. She doesn't say yes immediately. Danny is also awake for more then 48 hours and has still flashbacks from the war. there's a other storyline but that's was just to fill the episode. At the end Danny freaks out and goes to a hotel, Ed and Mary find out were he is and Ed goes to Danny inside and says to Mary that it's better if she waits outside. Ed asks Danny what is bothering him and he says he had to ask for a air-strike right on top of them and he was the only one that survived, he doesn't sleep anymore because he has no one to watch his back. I really liked the scene with Ed and Danny because you find out ed had to do the same thing and then he says to Danny that he has to take a shower, so he can clean himself up. Then he falls asleep on the bed while REM is playing with Leaving New York and then Ed says I'll watch your back, son! I thought that was really a great line and then also Ed is sleeping and the Mary comes in and watch Danny sleeping. When that happens your hear some lines of Leaving New York and the lines are really great with the scenes because they say: I told you, forever,

    i love you, forever.

    I told you , i love you,

    i love you, forever.

    I told you, forever,

    i love you, forever.

    I told you, i love you,

    i love you, forever.

    And i thought it was really sweat and very emotional, it is one of my favourite episodesmoreless
  • Great episode!

    9.9
    That is exactly how you should bring a season back. A perfect mix of comedy and drama! Welcome to the Montecito Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, where you can do anything you want... but Ed Deline and his crack surveillance team will be watching. Just remember, what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas
  • I love the way they did this episode. It was a memorable episode for me.

    8.0
    I am absolutely in love with the beginning to this episode the way Danny just taps Mary on the shoulder and how he has to do it twice before she turns around. The reuniting kiss everything. It was a perfect beginning. I love the way Danny proposes to Mary, she thinks he only wants to sleep with her but in reality he wants to live his life with her. I fell as though it was a defining moment in their relationship, they went from best friends to lovers and it was a fantastic transition. Danny then goes into a state of madness due to lack of sleep. I like how it ends with Ed and Mary watching Danny who has finally been convinced by Ed to go to sleep therefore ending his sleep deprived run. He went from chaotic back to semi-normal.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (5)

    • Featured Music:
      "Personal Jesus" by Marilyn Manson (Danny rages through the casino)
      "Leaving New York" by REM
      "Mad About You" by Hooverphonic
      "American Idiot" by Green Day
      "All That I Want" by Michelle Featherstone

    • After nabbing one of the Dumb and Dumber brothers, his friends mill around the casino looking for him. Then we see Danny proposing to Mary late in the evening. After a commercial, we have Mary talking to friends over breakfast in the blazing sun, then back to security where the new guy lost the two suspects, but backtrack to find then leave the building into sunshine. This implies, the two spent well over eight hours milling around the casino before departing, which in itself would go too far for suspicious behavior.

    • Danny checks into a room at Treasure Island. As the camera spins around then focuses on one window, it zooms in on Danny sitting on a chair. The big windows at Treasure Island are actually shared by four rooms on two floors, not by just a single room.

    • When Big Ed enters Danny's room, you are presented a view of the strip facing northeast, with the Stardust and Stratosphere. When Big Ed enters the bedroom, the view faces southwest with the Paris and MGM in view. The shot entering into the hotel window establishes that his room was toward the middle of the hotel and therefore could only have windows facing the same direction on the strip, not opposite.

    • When Ed unloads the rifle in Danny's room, he removes the magazine, but doesn't pull the bolt back to clear the chamber.

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Ed: You need some sleep.
      Danny: I told you that I don't sleep anymore.
      Ed: Why?
      Danny: Because there's nobody left to watch my back. They're all dead. (Shudders) Every single one of them.

    • Mike: Well, when am I gonna get to hit a bad guy?

    • Delinda: Mary, she filled Mystique with coffins.
      Mary: Good. You finally got 'em out of my ballroom.
      Sam: You, I like. (Walks away)
      Delinda: We are not through, missy.

    • Ed: It is completely abnormal for grown men to paint smiles and frowns on their faces with bright colors.
      Delinda: You know, Daddy, one would've thought that the CIA might have diagnosed your coulrophobia and done something about it.
      Sam: (laughs) Okay. So...you have a little problem with clowns, big guy?
      (Delinda and Sam laugh)
      Ed: Shut up.
      (Delinda and Sam stop laughing)

    • Ed: What are the chances of three non-existent guys showing up at my casino at the same time?
      Mike: Not real good.
      Ed: Not real good.

  • NOTES (4)

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • The song "Leaving New York" by R.E.M. played at the end of this episode when Danny was in the hotel room with Ed. The episode title is "Have You Ever Seen The Rain" which is also the title of an R.E.M. song.

      The episode's title, "Have You Ever Seen the Rain", is a song by Creedence Clearwater Revival. The previous episode ended with another vision related CCR tune, "As Long as I Can See the Light".

    • When Leo hauls one of the "dumb & dumber" brothers to the security monitoring center, he says "Wow, this is just like the bridge on the Starship Enterprise". This is of course a reference to the Star Trek scifi series. It is also the exact same thing said in the Street Hawk pilot when Jesse enters the command center for the first time.
