    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (5)

      • Goof: This episode aired as the tenth episode of the series in the US, and the seventeenth in the UK, but there are clips shown as memories from episodes that aired after this one did in both countries.

      • Nitpick: They are worried that Margo might have injured her neck in the crash, but then they use smelling salts to bring her around, which makes her flinch away from the odor violently.

      • The episode's graphics spell the Nicaraguan city "Ocotal", and later "Ocatal". The correct spelling is "Ocotal.

      • Drummer tells Trout that he won't take a helo into Nicaragua to look for Shepherd and his team, he intends to walk in. Drummer is in San Lorenzo, Honduras, and that it almost 76 miles from Ocotal, Nicaragua, where Shepherd's team's last known position.

      • Goof: When Trout is talking to Drummer in the bar, in one shot Trout is toying with a glass, the shot cuts to Drummer, and when the camera is back on Trout, there is no glass in his hands or on the table.

    • QUOTES (4)

      • Margo: (after Matt cheers up Margo) One day you'll make a fine cheerleader.
        Matt: You think so, huh? Think I'm cute enough? (they share a laugh, and Matt leaves)
        Margo: (once he's out of earshot) Yeah.

      • Drummer: You know, Trout, as wiry as you are, inside I think you're really soft. You think that twisting fat cats' arms over bacon, eggs and buttered muffins and late morning tee times with congressionals is as good as a five mile run on the Potomac!
        Trout: Close, Drummer. When I play the congressionals I carry my own bags, and the reason I prefer a late morning tee time is because my morning run is ten miles! Rain, or shine!

      • Matt: Sorry about barking at you earlier.
        Margo: No problem. My infantry skills are a little rusty. Bad for the manicure, you know?

      • Drummer: (holding Trout in a joint lock) I owe you big time!
        Trout: You were pardoned! I had your record redacted! Clean Slate.
        Drummer: You put me in the crossfire, pulled me out, made me dance like a puppet on a string, and then, cut the string!
        Trout: We did what we said we would do.
        Drummer: Didn't do anything about the Colombians! Came to Dallas looking for my head!
        Trout: How was I to know? They came into the country illegally. Would a formal apology help clear the air?
        Drummer: No, killing you would help clear the air!
