Walter Winchell said the immigrants had come 6,000 miles. Since it's only 4,058 miles from Bremen, Germany, to Chippewa Lake, the immigrants must have taken some really roundabout detour through Canada.
Garchek: (to Ness) Just tryin' to make a buck.
Nitti: They know how to live in Miami Beach, I tell ya that.
Nitti: We're hittin' the New York market hard. Kulak's beginnin' to sweat. It'll do him good.
Nitti: If the job's too tough for you, Kova, we can get you another one--lookin' for the bottom of Lake Michigan.
Nitti: I don't like to run second.
Kulak: You remember Karl Hansa?
Louie: He's a hard one to forget.
Schultz: (about Hansa) He makes Vinnie Coll look like a Boy Scout.
Schultz: (about Hansa) I was right. He is a maniac.
Hansa: (to Kulak and the boys) Good day, gentlemen. It's always good to see old friends.
Kulak: If you want an explosion, Mr. Schultz, the best thing to use is dynamite.
Hansa: (to Kova) If the money is good I will do whatever you say.
Kova: (to Hansa about Mady) The food's good. I can't say the same about the company.
Ness: When's the next shipment?
Mady: Monday night at 11:00.
Ness: Is that straight from the old Indian?
Hobson: (about Mady) You got yourself a fan, Mr. Ness.
Ness: You think too much.
Nitti: There's a leak, Kova, and you plug it.
Kova: (about Hansa) He doesn't know anything, Frank.
Nitti: Whadda you know, Kova? You know where the door is.
Nitti: (to Hansa) The way you talk, you better be good.
Ness: (to Mady) Sounds like your movie could only have an unhappy ending.
Mady: What do you want?
Hansa: The world, Mrs. Koerner. The world that belongs to Nitti and that pig Kulak. And you'll get it for me.
Ness: NItti's deals are pretty one-sided.
Hansa: The one who informed Mr. Ness and the one who has stolen the books are one and the same.
Kova: Even the dumbest cop on the beat can figure that out.
Kova: You're crazy!
Hansa: Now that is a word I do not like.
Kova: Then stop actin' like it.
Hansa: With Ness and Kova both gone I can go to Nitti on my terms. I've got the records and he'll have to listen.
Narrator: (about Mady) She may never have found a new dream but at least her nightmare was over.
This episode marks the fourth consecutive one in which Agent Youngfellow is missing. All in all, Abel Fernandez missed 12 episodes in Season Three for some reason or another. He would return in the Season Four premiere The Night They Shot Santa Claus.
This marks the only episode in which Frank Nitti and Joe Kulak both appeared although they have no scenes together.
This episode marks the final appearance of Oscar Beregi as New York/St. Louis crime boss Joe Kulak who was dropped as a recurring character at the end of Season Three. Beregi had played Kulak in seven episodes and in another he had played a Kulak-like character. Frank Nitti was also supposed to be dropped along with Kulak but the character returned for three mid-season appearances when the Season Four ratings nosedived.
This marks the only episode where we see Nitti's living quarters. His scenes take place here instead of the usual council room of the Montmarte Cafe. Since this was the final episode of Season Three perhaps the Montmarte council room sets had been put into storage by Desilu and the apartment set was the only one availabe for Nitti's scenes.
Warren Kemmerling becomes the third actor to play Dutch Schultz with his appearance in this episode.
This episode ranks as the bloodiest of Season Three as at least 11 people die.
