  • Trivia

    • CIA analysts and operations' directors should live in Washington, D.C. Their offices should be there, as well. CIA. is not FBI., they don't have branch offices in every major US city.

    • If Laura still has her ex-boyfriend's clothes and toiletries, they probably split up a short while ago. It doesn't agree with what she says in "Vintage Steele."

    • Steele calls the CIA at nine o'clock. He gets there around one o'clock. What were they doing for four hours?

    • The reference to "Misha" and "Two seats for the Bolshoi" is either a goof or blarney. Baryshnikov never had anything to do with Bolshoi. Besides, at the time, Bolshoi wasn't even in the country.

  • Quotes

    • Steele: (to Laura) You lived with a man who wears white belts? Am I disappointed!

    • Sheldon: Must be great being Remington Steele.
      Steele: It has its moments.
      Sheldon: Are you serious? I've wanted to be like you all my life!
      Steele: Relax, Sheldon. Remember you're only wearing a towel.

    • Laura: You and me on a date?
      Steele: Boggles the mind, doesn't it?

    • Steele: (to Laura) Finally. We're sleeping together. Must make it a point to tell Murphy

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Steele: These are secret agents we're talking about--bombs, poison darts, big fat guys with deadly hats they throw at your neck!

      The last phrase is a reference to Oddjob, the henchman from the 1964 James Bond movie, Goldfinger. Oddjob would hurl a razor-edged derby hat as a weapon, which he demonstrated by decapitating a statue. Pierce Brosnan would take over the James Bond role in four motion pictures from 1995 to 2002.
