    • QUOTES (5)

      • (opening commentary)
        Tom: Picture rustlers pursuing a racing stagecoach, the driver whipping his horses for all they're worth. A scene we saw every Saturday afternoon as kids. Now we only see it once in a while. The modern equivalent, a truck hijacking. It's not so entertaining is it? Not this time - two men are dead. People say you can't put a price on human life. I used to think that too, but I've seen too much that proves otherwise. Whoever killed this driver figured out what he was worth to the penny: one truckload of cold beef. No more. No less.

      • Lt. Hogan: What do you say we keep some of that color out of the paper for a little while?
        Tom: How little?
        Lt. Hogan: Til we find out what's going on here.
        Tom: That could take a long time.
        Frank: You have a lot of confidence in the police department.
        Tom: Not the whole department, just you guys!

      • Stevie: You know, sometimes I hate my job. I really hate it.
        Nicole: I think everybody feels that way once in a while.
        Stevie: It's not the same.
        Nicole: As what?
        Stevie: As anything normal. It just keep coming into my life. You know?
        Nicole: No, not exactly.
        Stevie: You go to work, you do what you have to do and when it's over, you go home. When I go home, it's still there. It gets in bed with me for God's sake.
        Nicole: Well, it's not so bad having a cop in your bed!

      • Kevin: (to Frank) You're real cute when you get mad.

      • (closing commentary)
        Tom: Trust and betrayal. Friendship and duty. How do we balance them out? Brutus betrayed Caesar to save Rome, and earned the thanks of his country and an eternity in hell. So what do we say about friends and lovers and cops? I don't know. I don't draw the morals, I just tell the stories.

    • NOTES (2)

      • Show Producer Andras Hamori has a Guest Star role in this episode. His character name is Bob Carney. R.B. (Bob) Carney is a regular crew member who serves primarily as Story Editor. He also wrote several episodes.

      • In her professional singing debut, Stevie sings The Greatest Love by Shawne Jackson.

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • Charles Manson loved the Beatles
        Charles Manson, who along with his "family" was convicted of mass murder in August 1969, had told his followers that Beatles' White Album songs, including Helter Skelter, were a coded prophecy of an apocalyptic war he believed would arise from racial tensions. Manson called the war Helter Skelter, which he took from the song's name.

      • Brutus betrayed Caesar to save Rome
        In 44BC, a group of senators, led by Marcus Junius Brutus, assassinated Gaius Julius Caesar, the Head of the Roman Empire, on March 15 (the Ides of March) with the intent of restoring the normal running of the Republic. Instead the assassination resulted in a civil war.
        The story is told Shakespeare's tragedy Julius Caesar.
