  • Allusions

    • Victor Henckel: Robert Mellors, the executor, hired me to pursue it. He feels very strongly that Mrs. Triandos should not be allowed to inherit.
      Jamie Ross: We second that emotion.
      This is an allusion to the 1967 Top Ten hit by Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, "I Second That Emotion".

    • This episode appears to be ripped from the headlines of the Anna Nicole Smith case. Anna Nicole Smith wed a much older man who died shortly after the wedding, then spent years fighting his son in court for the inheritance.
