    • NOTES (1)

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • Roy Pack Jr.: I remember where I was when the Mets traded Darryl. I don't know about the 15th.
        A reference to Darryl Strawberry, who was not actually traded but signed as a free agent with the Los Angeles Dodgers after the 1990 baseball season.

      • This episode appears to be ripped from the headlines of the Pamela Smart case. In 1990, Pamela Wojas Smart manipulated her 15-year-old lover Billy Flynn into murdering her husband, promising him they would have a future together. Along with his friends Patrick Randall and Vince Lattime Jr., Billy shot Gregory Smart execution-style and then made the scene look like a botched robbery. All three boys turned State's witness against Pamela, who was so poised she was dubbed Ice Princess by the media.
