  • A Favorite

    The rating or this episode is low but, I must say, I enjoyed it a great deal. Not only is it tense, with poor Barney being shot mid mission, but it also gave Landau and Bain a wonderful opportunity to demonstrate their on-screen chemistry as he plays not only Rollin but Cordova, who feels sympathy and an attraction for "Anna" (Cinnamon), a helpless victim of injustice. Sadly, there would be very few of these moments between them after season one.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

    • The voter that is chosen for Rollin to impersonate is named "Miguel Cordova." Yet when Cinnamon is looking at the card in the police station, it states his name to be Miguel "Corday."

    • When Dan, impersonating a cop, visits Miguel Cordova, the shopkeeper, the latter swears he doesn't know Anna Krohl (Cinnamon). Yet just ten seconds later, he leaves through the front door with her, without even checking to see if the coast is clear. Not only was the undercover policeman watching, but Dan was just a few yards further on, and another uniformed cop walked right next to them as they got into his car.

    • Trivia: Dan disposes of the tape in a wood-burning furnace.

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Cinnamon: I was on the Riviera, it was just before Easter, and I met a man, a very charming man, and I fell in love.
      Captain Trez: I am certain he did too.

    • (Barney is wounded)
      Rollin: How's it going, Barney?
      Barney: Little throb, keeps the mind clear.

    • Cordova: Perhaps you... don't have to go now?
      Cinnamon: I wish that were true (she kisses him) I wish... things were different.
      Cordova: Things will be different. Now.
      Cinnamon: I hope so.

    • Dan: Barney, I'm thinking me instead of you.
      Barney: Dan, you couldn't handle the machine and I'll be all right. Willpower and all that.
