FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • In this episode we see a Captain Danza grilling Hooker, indicating that Captain Sheridan, who hadn't been seen since the fourth season episode "Anatomy Of A Killing," is no longer stationed at the headquarters.

    • Though with a number of new shots mixed in, the car chase at the climax is recycled from the third season episode "Slay Ride" – in many exterior shots, if you look closely, you can see Hooker dressed as Santa Claus.

    • When Stacy stops from her jog on the beach to talk to Steven Kennedy, the sound of the ocean behind them noticeably fades as she speaks, and crashes back in again on Steven's lines.

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Hooker: (to FBI agents) Either of you get in my way again, you're going to need a flashlight and forceps to find your badges.

    • Hooker: (to prostitute) Stay away from people that can hurt you. I don't want you to end up in a drawer, wearing a toe tag.

    • Corrigan: You know, you could learn to be a tad more diplomatic with [Cpt. Danza].
      Hooker: I'm taking up needlepoint; I can only concentrate on one thing at a time.

    • Hooker: I don't know what's being hit, and I don't know what's being heisted; but I don't like my streets being dirty.
