      • The term "Blue Flu" has been in use since 1967, shortly after the State of New York enacted the Public Employees Fair Employment Act which prohibited public employees, especially police officers, from striking.  The first known major "blue flu", however, was in Detroit later the same year.

      • Special billing was given to Kimberly Scott (and) in this episode.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Luke Jarrett: Scali promise you thirty pieces of silver?

        According to the Bible, Judas agreed to betray Christ to the Romans for thirty pieces of silver. The Judas reference is repeated again a few moments later when Luke refers to Lopez as a Judas for defending Scali.
