    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (1)

    • QUOTES (5)

      • (opening commentary)
        Tom: Never get involved in your own stories, that's what they say. Except I know Tony Bono 12 years and he's taking on Joe Latimer for control of the biggest, richest, most violent local in the air cargo industry. How do you stay on the sidelines? When the shooting starts, there are no sidelines.

      • Nicole: What are you doing about Latimer Frank? If you're so sure that he's the murderer, why isn't he behind bars?
        Frank: You think it's that easy, huh, to walk into a place like that and grab an informant and get him to talk? We can't make an arrest if we can't prove it.
        Nicole: Right. Now let me see if I've got this straight. You can't arrest Latimer because you don't have any evidence but you think that Tommy here should convict him in the newspaper. Is that right?
        Kevin: Yeah that's right. When you know what's going on and can't do anything about it, you find someone to yell at!
        Frank: Yeah, especially when that somebody else happens to be too dumb to stay at home in bed when he's shot.
        Nicole: Well he's got a point there. Why aren't you in bed?
        Tom: The night is young.
        Frank: Yeah, but you're not!

      • (in hospital after being shot)
        Tom: You think I'll ever be able to play the violin again?
        Nurse: Be happy you can joke about it. You are a very lucky man.

      • Tom: Uncle Joe Latimer, that's the story. He runs the union like he owns it.
        Frank: Has for a long time. Why this (the shooting) all of a sudden?
        Tom: Tony's running against him. Those shotguns were a paid political announcement.
        Kevin: Any way you can back that up?
        Tom: They weren't wearing Latimer buttons, if that's what you mean.

      • (closing commentary)
        Tom: Where there's money to be made, you'll always find a Latimer or a Canale. Maybe someone comes along and cleans house, kicks out the crooks, but how much has changed? Only time can tell. Tonight the men of 506 know they don't want Joe Latimer any more. A new man is in, with good intentions and promises he means to keep. I can't help asking myself if maybe Joe Latimer meant to keep his promises 15 years ago. Do I sound cynical? Well, maybe I am. I've seen it happen much too often. We all like stories about heroes who fight corruption and win. But in the end, it isn't any one man who changes things, that kind of change can only come from the men themselves. They have their union now, let's hope they keep it.

    • NOTES (3)

      • Michelyn Emelle appears in several episodes as an unnamed prostitute. In this episode we find out her name when Whitey calls her Susie.

      • Thomas Hauff, who plays a newscaster in several episodes and is always credited only as 'Newscaster', gives his name as Donald McAllister in this episode.

      • Lara Azzopardi, who plays the young daughter of John and Patricia Parker, is director Mario Azzopardi's real-life daughter.

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • Here you go, Lazarus.
        Is a reference to Lazarus of Bethany, whom Jesus raised from the dead. The story is told in the Gospel of John, Chapter 11, Verses 41-44.

      • Watch Miami Vice again - you guys are underdressing.
        Refers to the popular NBC show that aired from 1984 to 1989 starring Don Johnson and Philip Michael Thomas. While best known for its music, fashion was also an important part of the show. This is the second time Whitey refers to Miami Vice in conjunction with Kevin and Frank's wardrobe. The first was Episode #9 - Velvet.
