  • A fair episode

    After an eccentric millioniare is killed, it seems an open and shut case of murder against a former employee-yet Quincy finds the medical evidence contradicting itself! A connunity goof is that there is a close up shot of Sam and Quincy in the Coroner's car, than a long distant shot of Quincy alone, then a close up shot of Quincy and Sam in the Coroner's car. John Colicos shines as a deliciously evil killer!moreless

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (1)

    • Quincy: For two days I have seen important government officials run scared because of the power you people have. You have interfered in a murder trial, you have stolen newspaper files, you manipulated the law and sent an innocent man to prison. I mean who do you think you are? Do you think that you and this conglomerate are bigger than the Government; is that what you think?
      Harlan Standish: THINK! Not only will I tell you who I think we are, I will tell you who we actually are! We're the whole ball of wax, Quincy, the ultimate conglomerate. We and a few other giant corporations control this country. We are the government. I should think a man of your intelligence and experience would have understood that. Now I'm busy, get out!

  • NOTES (2)

    • The organisation being talked about by Standish is an Oligarchy, a form of government where power effectively rests with a small elite segment of society. The oligarchs prefer to remain "the power behind the throne", exerting control through economic means.

    • This episode was likely inspired by the death of eccentric billionaire Howard Hughes, who died a couple of years before its airing.
