    • Title: My Brother's Keeper
      The title is taken from a line found in the Bible in the story of Cain and Abel. After Cain had murdered his brother, Abel, God asked him the whereabouts of his brother and Cain answered: "I know not; am I my brother's keeper?" (Genesis 4: 9-10).

      The title is also an allusion to the 1991 film, New Jack City. The film stars Allen Payne (plays Will's nemisis on the basketball court in this episode) and Payne's character speaks the line several times.
