  • Trivia

    • Dutch has a late reaction to the knock on the door. You can tell it was a mis-timed sound cue.

    • Look carefully, you can see Green Tape on the floor of the kitchen in front of the fridge, used as a marker for an actor. It's visible while Vic is talking to Dutch.

  • Quotes

    • Monica: You've cost this city tens of thousands of dollars in clean-up.
      Raga: Send me a bill.
      Monica: We will. But you tell me who's planning this war with Poolboys, who's giving you these messages, I can make things better. (To Danny) Bring her something to eat while she thinks it over.
      Raga: Burger and fries.
      Danny: Settle a bet first. What's Raga stand for?
      Raga: Righteous Angel, Gorgeous Ass.
      Monica: I don't admire the artwork, but I gotta admire the confidence.

    • Dutch: So, you're going under with Slick, right?
      Claudette: Do me a favor, get somebody else.
      Dutch: It's our case...
      Claudette: Well, I'd rather not.
      Dutch: Well, that's great. That's fantastic. (Claudette starts to walk away) Hey! Hey, don't you walk away from me! (Claudette stops walking) Not after I've had your back everyday, for the past six months. (Ducth walks over to her) Look. This is our way to get back into the rotation, okay? They'll never buy me in this one, it has to be you.

    • Suvato: We'll check it out.
      Vic: Good, look for flowers, he poses as a delivery guy to get into the house.
      Suvato: Right homes.
      Vic: Someone sees him I want a call.
      Suvato: Hey! aren't you gonna swear us in?
      Vic: Blessed is he who delivers this asshole onto me.

    • (After beating up Halper)
      Shane: You know what, tell Antwon there's a new scoop law. (Pointing to Halper) Come pick up his dog shit.

  • Notes

    • This episode features the "Prophet's" gang again, who were last seen in the episode Slipknot. We also learn the leader's name (who was originally just called Prophet's Leader) is Savuto.

    • Music featured: Demon Called Deception by Grant Lee Buffalo.

    • The original promo for this episode had "sexual sounds" being heard over the phone, but was taken out at the last minute due to content.

  • Allusions

    • Antwon: We got these cops coming after us like Stormtroopers.

      An obvious reference to the Star Wars series of films.
