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 »

Best Vice Episode Ever!!!
25 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The episode starts out with a drug deal in a gravel pit. One of the dealers is Ted Nugent & he was a very convincing baddie. Callie (Arielle Dombasle) plays his girlfriend/seductress/partner/prostitute & is a total hottie. Arielle Dombasle plays this Machevellian part perfectly. The scene at the pool with the bottles of water, bowl and her shirt was so ahead of its time & so unexpected that it still leaves an impression 20 years later. The cat & mouse game between the vice team & Nugent's character interwoven with Crocket's obligatory "falling in love" with the stunning Callie is masterfully done. The final gravel pit scene left me shocked, anxious & wanting more. The final scene also shows just how disturbed, clever & calculating the Callie character truly is. Great Episode.
