    • QUOTES (8)

      • Gary Wallace: One plus one equals zero. No motive plus no witness equals no case.

      • Phil Ceretta: You can read. That gets you a diploma. Not a deal.

      • Judge Janis Silver: Is the defendant ready to enter a plea?
        Jon Cobb: Your Honor, if it please the court --
        Judge Janis Silver: Mr. Cobb, you couldn't please this court if you danced an Irish jig on your fingertips. Can we get a plea?

      • (Logan and Cerreta stop by the theater again.)
        Gary Wallace: Again?
        Mike Logan: We love the theater.
        Phil Cerreta: That rehearsal, the one that Mr. Foster missed? You were there all night?
        Gary Wallace: You remember where you were five years ago?
        Phil Cerreta: Yeah, I remember that I wasn't in business with a man who disappeared.

      • Mike Logan: Wearing a tux, not homeless ... nobody cared enough to miss him?
        Don Cragen: Well, somebody cared enough to freeze him.

      • Mike Logan: Five years ago, she's 24, he's 39.
        Phil Cerreta: Yeah, well, May-December romance is not exactly unheard of.
        Mike Logan: Yeah, but December usually comes with Santa Claus.
        Phil Cerreta: Hmm?
        Mike Logan: Look, Foster didn't have a dime. He's poor, she's beautiful. She's an actress, she's got guys hangin' all around her. She's gonna fall for Mr. Big Dreams?

      • Judge Silver: Mr. Robinette?
        Paul Robinette: The people request $200,000, Your Honor. All cash.
        Judge Silver: Mr. Robinette, do you know me to be vindictive? Bond'll be fine. $300,000! (bangs gavel.) Where's my clerk?

      • Mike Logan: You know, there's a lesson in this. Never fall in love with an actress.
        Phil Cerreta: Rex Harrison said it. They never stop acting.

    • NOTES (1)

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • This episode appears to be ripped from the headlines of the Roy Radin murder case. Radin was a theatrical producer best known for reviving the old Vaudevillian shows. On Friday, May 13, 1983, Roy Radin stepped into a limousine rented by Karen Jacobs-Greenberger with the intention of going to a restaurant and discussing the business arrangement further. About a month later, his body was discovered in a California canyon. He had been repeatedly shot in the head and a stick of dynamite had been set off in his mouth. The story behind Radin's death was a labyrinthine tangle mostly involving drugs. Greenberger turned out to be a woman of many names and interests. Although producer Robert Evans was initially suspected of the crime, Greenberger was eventually convicted.

      • The episode title is a reference to a William Shakespeare's MacBeth (Act V, Scene V, Line 27): '[t]hat struts and frets his hour upon the stage'.
