Goofs

The escapist magician is referred to as Kandinski by his wife, David and Maddie, as well as a large sign on stage proclaiming him "The Great Kandinski", but when David and Maddie knock on Mrs. Kandinski's front door the door placard reads "Kanoinsky". This is the only reference to the name "Kanoinsky" in the episode. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Nealy: I'm Dr. Nealy. Can I help you?
Madelyn 'Maddie' Hayes: I'm Madelyn Hayes and this is David Addison. We're investigators. We'd like to ask you a question about Mr. Kandinski, the magician.
Dr. Nealy: And that would be what?
Madelyn 'Maddie' Hayes: When you sent him to the mortuary, was he dead?
Dr. Nealy: Was he dead? No. He just checked in, had his chest cracked open, his lungs drained, his brain weighed, and his stomach emptied onto a table. After that he walked out of here and caught a bus. Hell, yes, he was dead!
