Goofs

The scene when Crockett and Tubbs are racing in the Ferrari to assist Gina is the same exact footage used in "Calderone's Return Part I" when Tubbs raced over to Crockett's house. This is evident by the way its shot and the tail light that is out in some cuts. See more »

Quotes

Detective James Crockett: Alvarado walks.
Lieutenant Martin Castillo: Walked.
Detective James Crockett: Wonderful. That's just wonderful. We've got a pusher, a suspected mob hit man and God knows what else and he does less time in this case than I did!

A great cast, superb performances and an excellent script make this a memorable episode
10 March 2007 | by (England) – See all my reviews

"Give a Little, Take a Little" has several familiar faces appearing in it. "Lost"'s Terry O'Quinn plays a slippery lawyer, Michael Madsen plays bad guy Sally Alvarado and "Rocky"'s Burt Young plays the high-level pimp who is making Gina's life uncomfortable. The late Charlie Barnett makes his second appearance as 'Noogie' Lamont.

This is a well scripted, complex tale that is dark and uncompromising. Crockett reveals his sensitive side when he tries to protect a young informant's name from being revealed to the court. Meanwhile Gina finds herself in too deep when undercover as a prostitute.

This is solid, quality viewing.

Tina Turner's "You Better Be Good To Me" provides a memorable track in this episode.

9 out of 10.
