  • Trivia

    • This is the first episode in which we see Hutch using an old-fashioned pocket watch instead of an ordinary watch. He will do so again in "Captain Dobey, You´re Dead", "Shootout" (where it is most prominent), and a last time in "The Omaha Tiger".

  • Quotes

    • On the existential pang of living in a digitized society...
      Hutch: I just wanna get my car fixed. I've been on the phone in there 20 minutes trying to prove to the guy that I exist! Did you ever think about it, Starsky? Here we go, another day, another dollar...10-4, 5, 6, Tac 2, Zebra-Three... They're trying to make us into digits and I'm tired of it!
      Starsky: Hey, hey, know, it's important. I enjoy being Zebra-Three. I don't think I could sleep at night if they took that away from us.
      Hutch: Starsky, they feed us numbers all day long. They try to make us into one of 'them'. You see, 'Zebra-Three, 10-4, 40 buffalo and a gaggle of geese--'
      Starsky: --And a partridge in a pear tree. It sounds like Christmas.
      Hutch: That's not funny.
      Starsky: I know it's not funny, but it's not the end of the world, either. But look at it this way, they coulda made us 1 Antelope-4?
      Dispatch Operator: Zebra-Three?
      Starsky: You see? Isn't that beautiful?
      Hutch: (grabs mike) Hello there, fellow person, nice human being. Are you calling us?
      Dispatch Operator: Zebra-Three, come in please?
      Hutch: 10-4s, 40 zebras. What are you talking...two-headed antelopes? What are we, a zoo?
      Dispatch Operator: Who is this?!
      Hutch: This is Detectives Hutchinson and Starsky. No numbers today. What do you wish, warm person? Please talk now.
      Dispatch Operator: There's a 187--that's a dead body--in Lincoln Gardens near the museum.
      Hutch: (now serious) 10-4. We're rolling.
