  • Trivia

    • Although this episode is supposedly a sequel to season six's "Casino", the details presented here don't match what happened in that episode. In that episode, the team stole $1.5 million and framed the casino owner: here, Metzger says that the team stole $4 million and incriminating records. None of the people seen here were in that episode, including Proctor, who was supposedly the head of security even though he was never seen in "Casino."

    • The same clock model (if not the exact same clock) can be seen on the wall of the tennis court building and later inside the bank.

    • Jim could have gotten out of the wire binding his hands fairly easily and early on simply by bending the part between his hands back and forth repeatedly, eventually the wire would have broken. This would have made the juggling of the top bunk and contorting to get his bound hands from back to front and back again unnecessary. Also, using the electric heating coil to break the wire would never have worked.

  • Quotes

    • Jim: (after he is rescued from the kidnappers) What time is it Barney?
      Barney: 4:47. Why, Jim?
      Jim: We've got a tennis court for 5:30, we can just make it.

    • Metzger: Hey, name your price.
      Jim: You paid it.
