  • Trivia

    • In the closing credits, Kevin Hare's character was misspelled "Carrillo" instead of "Carillo."

    • In Rabbi's, signs could be seen advertising "Red Beech Lager". There is no such brand in the real world.

    • Since the previous episode, Bernie made good on his plan to retire as a police sergeant and open a cop bar named "Rabbi's."

  • Quotes

    • Yuri Babchenko: She likes the beach. All I do is look at the water and think about...what's underneath it.

    • Tommy: Would you quit looking at me like doing something I shouldn't be doing with her?
      Frank: Are you?
      Tommy: Hey, I'm not like you, Frank. I can only manage one girl at a time.

    • Frank: How did you get onto Matthews?
      Rytell: Why should we tell you?
      Frank: Because I'm going to save both your careers from going down the toilet which is exactly where they're headed if you don't do exactly what I say.

    • Frank: I'm going to have a little chat with IA. See what they know.
      Tommy: And what? You think IA is all of a sudden is just going to open up for you?
      Frank: Yeah. They have to. Look, the feds come in to clean up that department, and IA is gonna look like a bunch of idiots who can't do their job. They'll do anything they can to avoid that.
      Tommy: You want to save IA's ass?
      Frank: It's either deal with IA or deal with the feds, and I'd rather deal with the devil I know.

    • Frank: IA shows up, so you're investigating a cop. Who is it? Matthews? The guy that just left?
      Rytell: Who?
      Frank: Right.

    • Alex: (raises his glass) Well, here's to all of the pretty Russian girls....who never made it home.

    • Chief Wycoff: Listen, they bring in the Feds, I'll resign. I can promise you that, Frank.
      Frank: Ed, the only way you're going to resign is if you've got another job to go to.
      Chief Wycoff: See, that's the difference between you and me: I know how to adapt. Got it? It's how I survive. You, on the other hand, will always be a gigantic pain in the ass.
      Frank: So, you do have another job to go to.

    • Tommy: Yeah, well Frank, you can't force a guy to take your help.
      Frank: Who says I can't?

  • Notes

    • John Cassini, who plays the recurring character Max Rytell, is the real-life brother of series regular, Frank Cassini.

  • Allusions

    • Jill: Then Alex starts singing these old Russian folk songs. He kinda got all Rasputin on me.

      Grigori Yefimovich Rasputin (a.k.a. The Mad Monk) was a hedonistic monk whose excesses and debauchery helped turn public opinion against the Romanov Dynasty and sparked the Communist Revolution in 1917.
