  • Caption Ross is the "Ribi" and Logan the bad guy NO WAY!

    Ok overall the episode wasn't that bad, the turns and switchs where pretty good but it was a little wierd trying to figure out the club owers involvement, that part could have been better written. And it was a new ending to the old killing over love. Usually it is the wife/husband getting killed over the afair not the lover because of the person loving their husband/wife more...and this couple was a little mental in there part. Maybe moving to the big city was not a good idea after all LOL. I give May brownie points for setting up another real killer who got a way with murder in an old case. Wierd vovdoo doorman that thinks he ahs to protect everyone on his block like some calling from god or another voice in his head.

    I did however love how they are playing out the charector conflict with Ross and Logan. Ross treats Wheeler like a teenage daughter, what up with that?!? And I love how Logan tells Wheeler basicaly to grew a set of balls every times he says, " did you tell your <b>Ribi<b/>..." I think Chris did a great job this week, my favorite comment he made was the, "cocaine in a studio ... gee I'm shocked, just shocked..." And you wonder why I love Chris so much!!moreless
  • I liked this episode for the interaction between Logan and Wheeler

    While the storyline was okay, it was the interaction between Detectives Logan and Wheeler that kept me interested. A music producer is killed, and a romantic involvement is brought to light; there's not much new here, and while there were good characters (Goro, for example) in this episode, the ending was not the best. As I said, it was Wheeler and Logan that kept me tuned in. There were many skeptics when Julianne Nicholson became Chris Noth's new partner, myself included. This episode showed something unfolding, I believe. It appears that Logan will draw Wheeler away from her dependence on her "rabbi," Captain Ross. The nonverbal language is what kept me amused, and I think as the season progresses, the two will make a good team.moreless
  • Not bad

    Waiting for the two parter that has the teams together again. Would someone please change the picture on the summary page? Three of those people are no longer on the show. And isn't about time for another Nicole Wallace episode? Why are the writers turning Bobby in to a sap? And I still hate the new captain. He looks like Mike Brady.

    • Megan Wheeler: You're a glass half empty kind of guy, aren't you?
      Mike Logan: Depends what's in it, Wheeler.

    • Seamus Flaherty: Goro was telling the girls that they was, uh-- What d'you call it? Uh, tha-- that they were debasing themselves. Who needs a monk in a strip club? We transferred him.

    • Mike Logan: (to Wheeler) Flaherty and I go way back... to one of the first murders in one of as many bars. Been so many, he probably can't keep track.
      Seamus Flaherty: We're unlucky.
      Mike Logan: Kennedys are unlucky.

    • Danny Ross: (about Goro) What do you want me to do, ask the D.A. to hold him on suspicion of being a large scary black man?

    • Megan Wheeler: The one-five's overwhelmed. There's too many clubs, too much crime. The mayor is worried Chelsea's reached a tipping point.
      Mike Logan: Tipping point?
      Megan Wheeler: The last moment before an outbreak turns into an epidemic.

    • Seamus Flaherty: Logan, how come I never see you with the same partner twice?

    • Dr. Elizabeth Rodgers: Exsanguination.
      Mike Logan: I love it when you talk Latin, Rodgers.
      Dr. Elizabeth Rodgers: He bled to death.

    • (Reprimanding Wheeler behind closed door in his office.)
      Danny Ross: All I want to know is, what were you thinking? Okay? Look, I got guys here that can't wait to see me fall on my face. I need help. I need you to keep me in the loop, clear?
      Megan Wheeler: Yes.
      Danny Ross: Goodbye.
      (Wheeler walks out of Ross' office and catches up with Logan.)
      Mike Logan: Your rabbi looks pissed.
      Megan Wheeler: You know what? Save it!

    • Mike Logan: "I love my husband so much, I had to kill my lover." Make a good country song. It's a shame Curtis is too dead to record it.

    • Goro: I see opportunity in danger. I study Chinese philosophy, martial arts. I am ready to defend my street, my city.
      Mike Logan: So you're like the Batman of bouncers, huh?

    • Mike Logan: (sarcastically) Oh, look. Cocaine. In a recording studio. I'm shocked. Shocked.

  • NOTES (1)


    • Danny Ross: Could be, or could be the plot of one of the Mortal Kombat video games he got his name from.

      Mortal Kombat was a very popular arcade game released in 1992. It became known for its then-unprecedented level of gore and fatality moves, which let a player perform a killing move on their opponent at the end of the fight. The Goro character is a giant four-armed dragon-like beast who the player fights before the main boss.

    • Mike Logan: Kennedys are unlucky.
      This is a reference to the Kennedy family of American politics that many have said is haunted by the "Kennedy Curse." Of Joseph and Rose Kennedy's offspring, Joseph Jr. was killed during a bombing mission in World War II, John was assassinated while serving as U.S. president, Robert was assassinated while campaigning for the U.S. presidency, and Edward nearly died when he drove his car off a bridge in Chappaquiddick (his female companion drowned). Additionally, other relatives have died during a freak skiing accident, been indicted for rape (though later acquitted) and murder (convicted decades later), and died in aircraft crashes. Edward underwent surgery in 2008 to remove a brain tumor and died in 2009 after treatments for his condition failed.

    • May: Walk The Line.
      Mike Logan: Oh yeah, that's the Johnny Cash bio.
      Walk The Line is a 2005 movie about the life of legendary singer/songwriter Johnny Cash (played by Joaquin Phoenix) and his relationship with his wife June Carter (played by Reese Witherspoon). The title of the movie is a reference to Cash's hit song "I Walk The Line."

    • Part of this episode appears to be ripped from the headlines of the Lizzie Grubman scandal. Celebrity publicist Lizzie Grubman was at a Long Island nightclub when the bouncer asked her to move her illegally parked Mercedes SUV, which she then backed into a crowd of people, injuring 16. She claimed not to have known the SUV was in reverse at the time. She later served a 60-day jail term for reckless endangerment and fleeing the scene of the accident.
