    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (4)

      • When going through the players' files in Sybil's office not long after Jackson's death, Reeves mentions he has five players graduating. After Season 2, the characters of Gomez, Goldstein, Hayward, and Reese all "graduated." Jackson was dead by then, so who was the other player graduating?

      • During footage of Carver playing for a spot in the city championship, Gomez is seen making a lay-up. However, in the very next shot of Coach Reeves and the bench, he's sitting on the bench.

      • When the team is in the locker room before the city semi-final game, Vitaglia is nowhere to be seen. However, during the actual game, we see him on the bench.

      • In this episode, Coach Reeves meets Curtis' brother and later presents him with Curtis' championship trophy at the end. However, in "Here's Mud in Your Eye" in season one, Curtis was said to be an only child.

    • NOTES (3)

      • According to the DVD commentary, when this episode originally aired on CBS, there were no commercial interruptions right up to the point where Curtis Jackson was killed.

      • In season one, Jackson had a problem with alcohol in "Here's Mud in Your Eye" and supposedly got cured through rehab. In this episode, a little over a year later, he's in a liquor store during a holdup. Apparently, and tragically, he must not have learned anything.

      • Final episode for Erik Kilpatrick, whose character, Curtis Jackson, is killed off.
        He was shot during a holdup of a liquor store.
