  • Quotes

    • Art: Billie, you're going to be mad.
      Billie: How mad?
      Art: On a scale from one to ten? Maybe five.
      Billie: I can handle that.
      Art: You're supposed to be in Frontera tomorrow ...
      Billie: On a story I am really looking forward to.
      Art: I need you to keep going on airport noise, and the hearing is tomorrow.
      Billie: That's more of an eight.
      Art: Rossi, come here!
      Billie: Ten!

  • Notes

    • Continuity Goof: In the flashback at the beginning of this story, on-screen text reads that the robbery/killings took place on September 28, 1978. That would've been at the beginning of season 2 of 'Lou Grant,' and since it involved the death of a star reporter and a photographer, it would not have gone unmentioned by Lou and the others back in 1978.

    • Nancy Marchand only appears in one scene, and it's near the end of the episode. Daryl Anderson does not have much to do either, and in his scenes, he basically stands around without having any dialogue... Animal doesn't even seem to be working or heading out on any assignments.
