    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

      • There is an apparent conflict of interest. As McMillan points out, he "can't be a police commissioner and a naval officer at the same time: it's against the law." But "old friends can still have conversations," therefore his consultations with Sgt. Enright are not a mistake.

        Mildred: I haven't finished your milk and cookies yet.
        Mac: Why don't you finish them downstairs?
        Mildred: What about you guys?

        Sally: Bullets? We've got a whole box of them in the dresser drawer.
        Mac: Not any more. I ate the last one this morning.

      • Sally: Mac, for the first time in my life, I'm more tired than I am curious. Just tell me in the morning. Home, James.
