    • QUOTES (3)

      • Joe Delaney: 35 years ago, I won an Overseas Press Club Award for my coverage of the fall of Saigon. Now, I make happy talk with morons in low-cut dresses. My career has been dead for a long time, I just-- I just haven't had the decency to bury it.

      • (Reading the list of Matson's defrauded investors)
        Connie Rubirosa: What do you think? Catholic Children's Charitable Trust might have popped Decker and Prescott?
        Michael Cutter: American Poetry Foundation. That's a cutthroat bunch.

      • Sharon Lee: (referring to Dawn) You had a drink with that woman!?
        Al Lee: At a press conference.
        Sharon Lee: What's drinking have to do with a press conference?
        Al Lee: A liquor company press conference.

    • NOTES (3)

      • Original International Air Dates:
        United Kingdom: October 18, 2010 on Sky One
        Czech Republic: April 10, 2013 on Prima family

      • Special billing was given to Jill Eikenberry (and) for this episode.

      • One of the few episodes where local TV news was portrayed which did not use the actual NYC NBC affiliate (WNBC4). Instead they used the fictitious News8 (There is no broadcast channel 8 in NYC). Nevertheless, there are similarities. For both WNBC4 & News8, the female co-anchor is named "Sue". And both WNBC4's Chuck Scarborough and News8's Joe Delaney have anchored the evening news for over 30 years. In fact, the episode first aired the day Scarborough celebrated his 35th anniversary anchoring WNBC4's newscast.

    • ALLUSIONS (3)

      • This episode is partially ripped from the headlines of the Bernard Madoff case. On March 12, 2009, Madoff pled guilty to running a 50 billion dollar Ponzi scheme and defrauding thousands of investors. Several class action suits have been filed against him.

      • Anita van Buren: Of course, I treasure my photo of Ed Bradley in a Speedo.

        Ed Bradley was an award-winning journalist who spent 26 years as a correspondent for the CBS news magazine show 60 Minutes. He died of leukemia in 2006.

      • This episode is partially ripped from the headlines of a scandal at KYW-TV ("CBS3") in Philadelphia involving former co-anchors Larry Mendte and Alycia Lane. While Ms. Lane had actually been fired at the beginning of 2008 for her actions with police in New York (charges from which were later dropped), Mr. Mendte as it turned out had been hacking into her e-mails and illegally reading them, apparently out of jealousy over Ms. Lane. A couple of days after he was fired, Mr. Mendte was indicted by the US Attorney's Office over this. At the time this episode originally aired, Mr. Mendte was still under house arrest and had been ordered to undergo computer monitoring and a psychological evaluation, while also paying a $5,000 fine.
