When McCloud and Clifford go to Sydney, Australia, to investigate a mob hit in New York, a panicked mole recognizes McCloud from a New Mexico murder case where he jumped bail, and puts out a contract on McCloud.
Did You Know?
When Alfred Donnelly's wife asks him why he is so panicked about trying to "get" McCloud before McCloud recognizes him, Donnelly shouts out: "Because I'm in the Mafia!" The M-word was practically never used on television during the 1970s because Italian-Americans resented the use of an Italian word to describe a crime syndicate (writers generally used the terms "Mob" or "Syndicate" instead). McCloud may have been ahead of its time in having an Australian use the word: the term popped up in Russia (as "Mafiya") after the fall of the Soviet Union and has since come into general use for crime rings all over the world.

You know, you really should stay. Tomorrow is a big celebration in Sidney. The Australia day parade.

The only parade I wanna see is me and that 6 foot side of beef climbing up that boarding ladder 11 a.m. sharp, comprende?
