Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (4)

    • Since Steele is able to pick locks with ease, why didn't he just pick Mildred's lock. They could have stayed there and eaten whatever she happened to have on hand at the time.

    • NITPICKS

      *How did Candy get hooked up with Harrigan?
      *How did Harrigan know where and for whose benefit he should pretend he's drunk?

      *Security at racetracks is very tight; nobody can even get close to the horses, much less set them loose.

      *When Jarvis comes to arrest Mildred, we're shown a shot of Remington's desk with the assumption that Steele and Laura are hiding behind it. In fact, if they were, we would be able to see their shadows underneath.

      *The Lavulite in the news broadcast really looks like real Royal Lavulite. Funny it's specifically pointed out that Lavulite is violet. What happened to "as blue as pieces of the sky"?

    • MATH 101

      Their "cash count" doesn't add up.

      First, Steele tells Laura that if she had to give more than a dollar for a hot shower, she'd be out of luck.

      Then they take a cab to the racetrack, even though a dollar should hardly be enough for two bus tickets. Did Candy give them some cash? Probably not, but who knows?

      Later, when they're looking for Harrigan, they only have enough money for one cot, which means no more than a dollar is left in the morning.

      What did they hock to get to the racetrack again, it's $5 per person? And how much did they get for Laura's necklace? $10 to pay for two admission tickets on the first days and $2-3 more to pay for one cot? A necklace isn't worth hocking for $13.

    • CONTINUITY

      For some mysterious reason Remington decided not to wear most of his jewelry to the wedding in New York. His bracelet, his medallion, and his pinky ring are not seen in this episode, else he could have hocked them. Is that why he didn't wear them in the first place, eh?

      But what about Remington's watch? The last time it's seen in the episode is in the motel room; he takes it off when he goes to the bathroom, puts it near the telephone, and puts it back on when he and Laura hear the sirens. What happened to it? Did he pawn it? If he did, they should have some cash; enough to last for a couple of days, I suspect. But he didn't and wore it during their romantic interlude in his living room.
