  • Trivia

    • The shredded document that Neal puts back together refers to him as "Cafferty" rather than Caffrey.

    • When Peter first calls Neal about the heist, he calls the Le Joyau Précieux "the most expensive clothing boutique in the city". Later in the episode, when Neal shows Peter the documents Frowler shredded which contains transcripts of Peter's phone calls, the conversation is replayed and Peter doesn't say "clothing."

  • Quotes

    • Peter: (to Neal) Is it fake?
      Lauren: (to Jones) He's talking about the necklace, right?
      Neal: (to the model) It's beautiful work.
      Model: Thank you.
      Jones: Guess that answers that question.

    • Neal: (looking at his mug shot in the newspaper) It's better than my driver's license photo.
      Peter: Which one? You have several... Alright one crime at a time.

    • Neal: Peter, I'm starting to like you again.
      Peter: Then we're hanging out too much.

  • Notes

    • The bakery Neal buys is called "The Greatest Cake" in order to escape from the judge's office. It's meant to be wordplay for the phrase "The Great Escape."
