    • TRIVIA (1)

    • QUOTES (5)

      • Max Greevey: You hate the Mets! Right?
        Mike Logan: Almost as much as you hate the Yankees!

      • Adam Schiff: New Yorkers don't always love their cops but they hate the people who kill them.
        Ben Stone: I want him convicted, let's slow down and do it right. If the press starts chewing on your heels, blame me.
        Adam Schiff: Starts chewing huh? This is a cop killer we are talking about, let him walk and I will be de-boned, butterflied and flambéed!

      • Brutus Walker (to Max Greevey): You want me to run, so you can shoot me and be a hero. Disappointed?

      • Mike Logan: I keep hearing the zipper on Rennick's body bag.

      • Max Greevey: Turn the other cheek. You believe in that?
        Mike Logan: Yeah. Twice a year. Christmas and Easter, in church.

    • NOTES (1)

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • Max Greevey: The Telegram? There used to be a lot of newspapers in New York.
        Don Cragen: Then they all started dying off.

        The Telegram alludes to the defunct newspaper New York World-Telegram and Sun which was published from 1931 to 1966.

      • This episode appears to be ripped from the headlines of the Larry Davis case. Larry Davis was a New Yorker who, in 1986, shot at 6 police officers who were carrying out a raid. Davis later claimed the officers were out to murder him because of his knowledge of corrupt cops but the officers claimed they were only there to question Davis about the killing of four (suspected) drug dealers. Davis manged to escape and a manhunt was on for him; he took hostages and only sundered himself to the police when the news media showed up and he was promised not to be harmed.
