FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Goof: Goren handles the typewriter without gloves, but Deakins still says to send it to latent for prints.

    • Nitpick: In the episode "Anti-Thesis", it is mentioned that Nicole Wallace served eight years in prison after testifying against her male accomplice, who got life. In this episode, it is stated that Nicole served ten years in prison while her male accomplice was released after eight years due to the intervention of one of his female accomplices.

  • QUOTES (7)

    • (After discovering a dead screenwriter.)
      Alex Eames: Fade out, Mr. Banyon.

    • (After talking to Bernard for the first time.)
      Robert Goren: Bernard looked like he knew our names.
      Alex Eames: Don't flatter yourself.

    • (Looking at the mugshots in the newspaper.)
      Alex Eames: I never got what smiling is supposed to prove. Innocent people aren't happy to get their mugshot taken.

    • (Eames looks at two boards filled with letters.)
      Alex Eames: I totally forgot I need an eye exam...
      Robert Goren: I'm copying down the letters as-- the same as they are on the [typewriter] ribbon, and once we know what his script is about, then we'll know, uh, wh-why he was killed.
      Alex Eames: See, I'd rather know who.

    • (After finding Bernard on the stairs.)
      Robert Goren: Nicole?
      Alex Eames: Maybe poisons was a lesson he should have skipped.

    • James Deakins: What are we dealing with here, some kind of Manson family?
      Alex Eames: If the Manson family shopped on Madison Avenue.

    • Alex Eames: He got his eyebrows waxed. I doubt he picked up metrosexual grooming tips in Grand Rapids.

  • NOTES (1)

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • This episode appears to be ripped from the headlines of the Charles Sobhraj (born Gurhmuk Sobhraj) case. Sobhraj was a serial killer who preyed on western tourists throughout Southeast Asia during the 1970s. These crimes were documented in a book titled Serpentine by Thomas Thompson – the working title for this episode.
