A black gang infiltrating a white ethnic gang's numbers racket makes four very big mistakes, in ascending order of importance: robbing and killing a pickup man for his bets and the numbers; shooting Broadhurst (knocking him out of the episode after the first scene) when he tries to interfere; framing the unconscious Broadhurst for skimming money from the numbers runners; and depriving a VERY well-connected Jewish tailor of his winnings.

A shivaree (charivari) is an Old World custom in which the members of the local community perform a celebration, usually when a couple gets married, often through the banging of pots and pans at the home of newlyweds. Shivarees can also be used a way showing the community's disapproval of someone, like a couple living together out of wedlock, or someone the community feels is of ill repute. See more
