Did You Know?


Although Godley and Creme's "Cry" is closely associated to the Definitely Miami episode, it was not featured on the original NBC airing. Instead, an original Jan Hammer incidental piece - which sounds very similar to the guitar rhythm in "Cry" - in select scenes such as when Crockett (Don Johnson) drives out to the sand dune junkyard to confront Charlie Basset (Ted Nugent), and when Crockett appears on the beach to reveal he is a cop and arrests Callie (Arielle Dombasle). Godley and Creme's "Cry" replaced the Jan Hammer original score when Miami Vice went into TV syndication. See more »


When Gravas runs from Crockett and Tubbs by the pool, his hair and clothes are dry. But when he jumps into his getaway car, his hair and clothes are soaking wet. A shot of Gravas falling or jumping in the pool was probably deleted. See more »

Trekkie in the house

Yo-yo-yo-yo!!!!!!! I just this episode of Miami Vice on cable and I was totally shocked to see one of my favorite actors playing a Ted Nugent crone.

Actor Jim Fitzpatrick (IV) was in the beginning of the episode supposedly dropping some money or drugs or both and Ted Nugent shot him and then covered Jim with sand.

I don't know if you've ever watched Star Trek Enterprise, but Jim Fitzpatrick whom played the characters of Commander Williams would've been such a great Captain.

But it seems that Paramount felt the show needed a pseudo star to prop-up the dying genre'.

You go Jim Fitzpatrick! Love seeing my heroes in anything.
