    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

    • QUOTES (5)

      • Teddy: (to Desmond) You know, betrayal comes in all shapes and sizes. The treacherous office gossips to backstabbing, both figurative and literal. At the heart of each betrayal is this: Someone you know breaks the bond of trust between you.

      • Dr. Balo: The hurricane, the suffering, the deaths. They've hardened us. The government's promises remain unkept. And Chief Bankole is trying to bring hope back to the village.
        Teddy: Yeah, hope I can get behind. It's the bullets that bother me.

      • Teddy: How am I gonna get General Umar to cough up $100 million?
        The Dealer: I know Umar.
        Teddy: Do you know what I can blackmail him with? He got a coke problem? Leather fetish?
        The Dealer: No, no. He's the worst kind of politician, Teddy. Self-righteous and incorruptible.

      • (Teddy displeased General Umar by insulting him)
        Philip: Teddy, I need you to see this oil deal through. Umar is making unpleasant grunting sounds.
        Teddy: Oh, come on. It's not as if I slept with it.

      • Teddy: Fathers and sons. We do things because of our fathers, we do things for our sons.

    • NOTES (2)

      • This episode is out of sequence. Olivia refers to the fact that Philip is still healing from surgery, but Philip does not undergo surgery till the following episode, "Kosovo".

      • When Teddy is watching tv he is watching the episode of Homicide: Life on The Street "Three Men and Adena" which was written by Philanthropist co-creator, co-producer and writer Tom Fontana. Fontana won a Primetime Emmy for writing that particular episode.

        Knowing this makes Teddy's seemingly random line ("So hokey, who wrote this rubbish?") much funnier.
