When Dr. Carbo leaves the Purple Peacock, returning to Sunset Memorial Hospital, he walks east along Sunset Blvd. Not only is he walking towards the entrance of the very same bar he just left, but he's also heading away from the hospital, which is located less than 500 feet west of him. As if that's not enough, he arrives at the hospital while still walking east down Sunset -- towards the location of the bar. See more »

I pretty much agree with the first poster. Good episode, horrible ending. I just need to comment on the "Filthy Magazines" comment. What it actually showed was "Filthy McNasty's" which was a club on the strip. It IS a fun "blast from my past," looking at the old strip. MMMMmmmm...Scandia!

A Martinez is at the height of his "hunkiness" in this episode. He's totally yummy. The funny Scottish nurse who gives Quincy a hard time at the clinic is a hoot. Lots of adorable young women (A Martinez is a magnet!LOL). AND lots of guys with feathered 70's hair and porn mustaches. I'm old enough that I think they look hot!LOL
