    • QUOTES (4)

      • Mayor: When it comes to my past, I'm on a need-to-know basis.

      • Stuart: I can't believe we're breaking into our own office.

        Carter: Relax. It probably doesn't even break the penal code.

        Stuart: What code?

        Carter: You never listen! I said penal. Penal!

        (Stuart chuckles)

        Carter: (sighs) I get it. It sounds like penis. Is that what you want to hear? Penis! PENIS!

        (Stuart laughs hard)

        Mike: The next person who shouts 'penis' is losing theirs.

      • Mike (about Caitlin): We're going to be at the mercy of this fascist in high heels!
        Stuart: Wow. Vegas flashback...

      • Stuart (to Carter): You're the one with an incentive to get caught. Prison is like summer camp to you people!

    • NOTES (1)

    • ALLUSIONS (3)

      • The title of this episode is a play on the name of the Pulitzer Prize winning novel, All the King's Men, published in 1946.

      • Mike: 215, it's my favorite Bible verse. "Go John, Johnny be good. Go, go, go."

        This quote is an obvious reference to Michael J. Fox's famous scene in Back to the Future where he plays Johnny B. Goode in the fifties.

      • Stuart: Ah, I remember high school girls, to be thirty again.

        This is of course is a reference to Ferris Bueller's Day Off. Alan Ruck, who was thirty at the time, played a character (Cameron Frye) who was a high school student.
