Allusions Edit

  • The game that Odin Quincannon is playing on his computer is Q*bert. It was first produced as an arcade game by Gottlieb in 1982. Its interesting to note that the computer monitor and keyboard he's using are of a very old model, which is strange since Quincannon is a man of means.
  • Reference is made to Linus Dilmoe in this episode. Linus is the child predator who drives the school bus as first seen in "See" and in "The Possibilities". His last name is supplied for the first time in this episode.
  • After Tulip O'Hare's reaction to the way Lacey was treated, Mosie says "It's Chinatown". This is a reference to the 1974 drama film Chinatown starring Jack Nicholson where the final line of the film is "Forget it, Jake, it's Chinatown".

Quotes Edit

  • Cassidy: : But I mean, after that, these two fella come by, right, dressed as cowboy blokes on the outside, but sounded more like two blokes who just stumbled in out of a pub in Clerkenwell, if you know what I'm tryin' to say.
  • Jesse Custer: I have no idea.


  • Cassidy: Now I'm a big believer in 'live and let live', but when somebody comes after one of my friends, brandishing a bloody chainsaw, we're gonna have issues.




  • Mosie: Fun, funny, such a great spirit. But that temper of yours... not even your mama could handle it.
  • Tulip O'Hare: My mama never tried, Mos. She was too busy up there, handlin' all them boners and balls.
