  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Wesley Kenderson: This is the last time we'll meet like this, detective.
      Robert Goren: Hope so.
      Mrs. Kenderson: Hope is for suckers, detective.

    • Alex Eames: Wesley's only into one thing. He's like my partner, who just wants to be left alone to do what he's good at: catching bad guys. It's the same with Wesley. Stealing silver's all he thinks about, all he's gonna think about.

    • (Goren and Eames are headed to Pennsylvania.)
      James Deakins: Pennsylvania's nice this time of year. Bring me back a smoked ham.

    • Robert Goren: Well, geez, I-I don't know how to break this to you, Wesley, but, uh, you killed her.

    • Paul: She said the smell of electricity made her sick.
      Robert Goren: The smell of electricity?
      Alex Eames: I thought I could smell moonbeams.
      Robert Goren: Oh, when you were pregnant.

    • (Regarding the silver thief.)
      Alex Eames: He's making fun of us.
      Robert Goren: Well I would too, if I was this good.

    • (Referring to the hysterical Victor Burke.)
      Alex Eames: Is he for real?
      Robert Goren: Yeah, absolutely. He might have planned to steal them, but somebody else beat him to the punch.

    • This episode appears to be ripped from the headlines of the Blaine Nordahl case. Nordahl was a thief who stole millions in antique sterling silver from wealthy families.

    • James Deakins: That's four nights in a row our Silver Surfer's been out of action.

      This is a reference to the Marvel Comics superhero Silver Surfer.
