    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (3)

      • PLOT

        *The con Laura thought Steele might have been running with Cranston was far too risky; even if Remington was in on it, he would have never come back, and he would have never even come close to the hole in the floor; this way, at least he wouldn't end up in jail and there would be no need for Laura to bail him out. But of course, Laura was in no condition to act logically.

        *Keyes says he doesn't understand why Steele came back - the safe was peeled, the stuff was gone. Indeed, there was no reason to come back. Why the stakeout?

      • Goof/Nitpick

        *When Remington gets out of the jail, he wears a gray suit, not his black "working" clothes he wears during the break-in, arrest and Mildred's visit. It's possible that Reuben has brought him the suit, but we don't see either one carrying the old clothes - he hasn't just discarded them, has he?


        Laura calls Remington Steele Investigations the product of six years of hard work, meaning it's a little over three years with Remington Steele in the picture and about 2.5 years without him.

        It agrees with "Red Holt Steele", in which the goons at Varicorp say she has been employed with Remington Steele Investigations for the last 3.5 years, which means for 2.5 years there was no real Remington Steele in the picture.

        However, it contradicts "In the Steele of the Night", in which Murphy said it had been four years since they'd left Havenhurst Detective Agency.

        Since Laura had her own agency for six months, it makes 3.5 years without real Remington Steele, unless she was unemployed for the whole year, which is unlikely - we know Laura.

        It also contradicts with what Laura says in the coffin in "Dreams of Steele" about "three years of building up the agency," which means no more than a year and a half without Remington Steele in the picture.

        And it contradicts with "Bonds of Steele", in which Laura tells Alessandra she had to pretend for four years.
