The Shield

Season 2 Episode 10


Aired Tuesday 10:00 PM Mar 11, 2003 on FX



  • Trivia

    • Watch Claudette's fingers when she's typing a letter to her daughter. She's only taping the keys, not actually punching them.

    • Vic says that he´s known Gilroy for 15 years, but in a previous episode whilst Gilroy is commenting on their friendship and him betraying Vic, Gilroy says "One bad year in twenty years of friendship, it isn´t that bad."

    • Watch frame by frame when Vic sends Gilroy south. The giant spotlight behind Vic is a pro-light, not a regular light. You can see the tower it's attached to.

    • When Claudette is talking to Danny, the line "or another cop" is edited in, probably due to bad audio the first time around.

  • Quotes

    • Dutch: A transexual or a cross-dresser?
      Long John: Is there a difference?
      Dutch: Yeah, a pretty big one.

    • Vic: (Sees Claudette staring at him) Yeah?
      Claudette: Just reading the newspaper. Have you?
      Vic: Lakers cut it pretty close last night.
      Claudette: They're not the only ones.

  • Notes

    • This marks the final appearance of John Diehl in the series, as his character is sent south of the border.

    • Several scenes were cut from the episode due to time, including Vic telling Shane about Tavon's past, and Aceveda's smear campaign against his opponent. You can find them on the Season 2 DVD.
