White Collar

Season 2 Episode 10

Burke's Seven

Aired Thursday 9:00 PM Jan 18, 2011 on USA



  • Trivia

    • When Frederick Bilal takes out his phone to call Larssen, Mozzie is heard to be saying "spare some change?" but his mouth doesn't voice the words at all.

    • After Elizabeth has dumped the businessman who was blocking the phone booth, camera 2 from inside the phone booth shows him leaving, but on camera 1 the businessman doesn't move.

    • Neil hands out cards to the forgers with the website address 42685th.com written on them. This is in reference to the place where he'd like for all of them to meet him: 4268 5th Ave. At the time of this episode's original airing, that website address redirected to the Fellowship of Fools website (www.fellowshipoffools.com), which at that time featured a huge White Collar background advertisement and front page media about other USA and SyFy shows (both channels are owned by the same parent company).

    • Mozzie is admitted to hospital under the name Ivan Bliminse which is an anagram of Invisible Man.

  • Quotes

    • Mozzie: Wait, wait, wait, wait. A true con gets you everything you want. Suit, once this is all finished we may have Larssen, but you're still framed for planting the gun.
      Peter: One con at a time.

    • (After telling Jones about the music box)
      Peter: Clinton, what I'm asking you to do isn't sanctioned by the Bureau, and it's very dangerous. You can walk away right now, no questions asked.
      Jones: I'm on your team, Peter. I'll back your play. Anything to get out of that van.

    • Neal: Look at the bright side. You're not dead.
      Mozzie: I know. It's worse. I'm in the system.
      Neal: Not exactly.
      Mozzie: Ivan Bliminse. Invisible man? That's apropos.

    • Peter: No. No, the FBI is not gonna pay for your combat training.
      Neal: Think about what I could do for you guys if I knew how to fight.
      Peter: No, I'd rather not. New York is safer if Neal Caffrey is lacking in at least one skill set.
      Neal: Okay, what about self-preservation?
      Peter: No, you've done pretty well with the whole running away thing. It suits you. Get a dog.
      Neal: Can I borrow Satchmo?
      Peter: No, you can't borrow Satchmo.

    • Neal: I've been a prince.
      Sara: When was that?
      Peter: Yeah, when was that?

    • Neal: (refering to Peter without his FBI badge) He's like Superman without his powers.

    • Sara: What now, boy wonder?
      Neal: You're mixing your superheroes.

    • Neal: "Keep an eye on something" is code between me and Peter, okay? It means do some digging, see what I can find.
      Sara: Does Peter know that's what it means?

    • Elizabeth: (handing Mozzie the straws he asked for) You know, they do wash the glasses here.
      Mozzie: Oh, yeah. Next you'll tell me that Paul McCartney wasn't replaced by a lookalike in 1966.

    • Elizabeth: Good luck with your little con.
      Peter: It's not a con.
      Neal: Well, technically, it's a con.
      Peter: It's a sting.
      Neal: Yeah, but a sting's another word for... (Peter gives him a look) Okay, let's start the sting.

    • Peter: A good con never admits to anything. (to Neal) You taught me that.

  • Allusions

    • Neal: Nice ride, Butch.
      Peter: Thanks, Sundance.

      Neal and Peter are referencing an American Western movie from 1969 called Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. The film that was directed by George Roy Hill and written by William Goldman follows two Wild West outlaws played by Paul Newman (Butch Cassidy) and Robert Redford (Sundance Kid).

    • Title:
      The title is a reference to the British television show Blake's 7 (1978-82). The characters actually mimic the personae of the original, with Mozzie playing Orac, the cynical, pessimistic computer. Peter is Blake, Neal is Avon, Jones is Gann, etc.
