Did You Know?


This episode is told in a "Sam Spade" style, with the detective (Eddie Cain) as the main character (with a voice over), and David merely as one of the suspects. See more »


As Eddie and David drive past Eddie's office, Eddie's voice over says that he (Eddie) has a spare gun in his office - he had lost his main piece earlier - but he couldn't go in because the police were there after having discovered the body. Yet later, he has a gun just before the climactic fight scene. There is no indication in the story about how he got one. See more »

Eddie Cain: [narrating] You never learn from experience. There I was, chasing a guy twice my size with a guy four times my size chasing me. Yeah, Eddie, you got some intellect.

A Very Well-Written Episode
14 November 2009 | by (Chicago, IL) – See all my reviews

This happened to come on one of our local rerun channels today, and I was glued to the screen. I remember The Hulk being generally well-written, but this film-noir style episode is particularly good. One almost gets the feeling that the writers came across an old movie script and adapted it for the show. The notable exception to the otherwise excellent script are some awkward lines of dialog issued by Eddie Cain about two-thirds of the way into the episode--lines delivered in an almost goofy style that don't match the somber tone of Cain's narration. Beyond this, the word choices are so sharp, and the delivery so thoughtful, that it really takes you back to a much earlier age of screen writing. Combined with a convoluted plot that will keep you guessing 'til the end, this is a very good episode indeed.
