  • Trivia

    • It would seem that Inky is able to capture Jaime's bionic abilities on film from an amazing number of angles while sitting in a tree with a single camera.

    • When Inky goes to the bar, a Musak version of Elton John & Kidi Dee's Top 40 hit "Don't Go Breakin' My Heart" is playing in the background. Funny because EXACTLY the same song was playing at Duke's bar in the previous week's episode, "Iron Ships and Dead Men"! I guess they figured no one would notice a week later.

    • As with most writers that write TV scripts, they don't know the difference between a Chimp and a Monkey. Inky's pet is the former.

  • Quotes

    • Oscar: What if you continued to go along with him?
      Jaime: You want me to become a bank robber?
      Oscar: Help him with the robbery - and I'll be there to catch him for his third felony.
      Jaime: You want me to set this man up?
      Oscar: I can pull some strings, Jaime, and have him sent to Alcatraz.
      Jaime: Alcatraz is closed down, Oscar.
      Oscar: You're beginning to get the idea, babe.

    • Oscar: Do you have any idea what you're dealing with? I ran a fast check on this character; this is the file on him. Carl Inkervoya, also known as 'Inky.' He's got a string of arrests as long as your arm...
      Jaime: Which he knows all about...
      Oscar: ... mostly petty thefts. He's not wanted for anything now, but he's gone down on grand theft twice. The last time he was caught because a... because a monkey triggered the burglar alarm?!
      Jaime: (laughing) I'll believe that!
