    • The title of this episode, "Maltese Cross", is a reference to what the writers believe is the firefighter's badge. The Maltese Cross is a symbol of protection and a badge of honor. It originated as an badge of honor that was awarded to the Knights of St. John when they fought the Saracens for the Holy Land. The firefighters' emblem is a cross of Saint Florian not a Maltese cross, although they are routinely confused because of their similarity.
