  • QUOTES (1)

    • Perry: Two pawn tickets: one she hides in the label of a mink coat, the other ticket stays in her purse where anybody might find it. It's inconsistent.
      Paul: She's a woman.
      Perry: Nah, that's no excuse.

  • NOTES (1)

    • The ending in this episode differs from the ending in the novel on which it is based. In the novel, Lt. Tragg was forced to shoot and kill the murderer when he/she resisted arrest. Here, Tragg only apprehends the guilty party. When the episode was re-filmed in Season 9 as TCOT Sausalito Sunrise the original ending from the novel was restored.
