  • Quotes

    • Murdock: Just think: if we get a pardon, we may never have to eat a knuckle sandwich again!
      B.A.: I wouldn't bet on it crazy man. Looks like Hannibal's on the jazz again!
      Face: Oh no...
      Murdock: (to Hannibal) No, you tell me right now, you tell me right to my face, you tell me that you don't have a plan.
      Hannibal: Well, I...I was thinking, like Bernie and George. What are we gonna do when this thing's over? I mean, what are we really qualified to do?
      Face: Go after thugs in the park…
      Hannibal: And outlaw motorcycle gangs…organized crime figures…why, there's a world of slime-balls out there!
      Murdock: I knew it. I just knew you had a plan.
      Hannibal: Comforting, isn't it?
      B.A.: I'll get the van.

    • Frankie: Oh, great. B.A., if this maniac doesn't kill us, we're all goin' to jail. I bet we don't get to collect $200, either.

    • Nemchek: Those people are so afraid of me, they talk to me as little as possible.
      Bernie: (laughs) Can't say as I blame them.

    • Face: Since when did we go into the stray kid business?
      Stockwell: Since the so-called "stray kid" became a national security risk.
      Frankie: What'd she do -- smuggle some Clearasil out of the country?

  • Notes

    • This was the series finale although another episode aired later, after the network pulled it out of its archives. On Murdock's T-shirt in this episode "Fini" (the French word for "end") is displayed. In the installment shown later, his shirt reads "almost fini".

  • Allusions

    • Frankie mentions going to jail and collecting $200.

      This is an allusion to "Monopoly," a popular American board game where a penalty of jail time is assessed, and a normal collection of $200 is disallowed.

    • Frankie references Clearasil.

      Clearasil is a leading over-the-counter acne medication, most frequently used by teenagers like the one Frankie is discussing.
