  • Trivia

    • We find out Zito was afraid of needles, and that he collected snow globes. We also see the apartment he moved into after his house burned down in the first season episode, "Made For Each Other."

    • During a chase, a car runs into a boat; but instead of simply crashing into the boat, the car becomes airborne.

  • Quotes

  • Notes

    • Pepe Serna previously appeared in the second season episode, "Yankee Dollar".

    • Instead of the closing credits that features various Miami landscapes, these particular credits show captures of Zito (and Switek) from various episodes; the theme remains in place.

    • No one knows the exact reason why Zito was killed off. John Diehl says he was not satisifed with his part on the show. But it was reported at the time that Universal Television wanted the budget trimmed after a disappointed dip in ratings during the troubled second season of the series. It would seem the latter was more the reason, since Diehl was never replaced.

    • Joe Dallesandro was in the first year episode, "One Eyed Jack".
