Did You Know?


The fire engine at the club is Engine 51, the 1974 Ward LaFrance Ambassador assigned to Universal Studios at the time. It was previously featured in the TV series EMERGENCY!. Its 51 markings are, however, covered up in this scene. Interestingly, it has appeared as Engine 51 in some other Quincy episodes. See more »


At the club fire, the Battalion Chief is wearing a turnout coat and a dress uniform cap. He should be wearing a white fire helmet instead. This is inappropriate fire scene dress for the Los Angeles County FD and nearly all other departments. See more »

Quincy becomes uncharacteristically unprofessional.
18 May 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Darleen Carr Quincy goes a bit too gaga a bit too quickly too

While I enjoyed "Of All Sad Words", I must admit that it's a very inconsistent episode. Up until this episode, Dr. Quincy was VERY professional and determined to discover the truth. However, here he behaves like a love-sick teenager and his professionalism is out the window.

The film begins with a fire. A mobster dies in this fire and there's evidence that it was not an accident. An insurance investigator insists that it's the dead man's wife--especially since there appears to be a pattern and at least one other might have been killed by her. However, Dr. Quincy is very easily taken in by the lady--she seems very sweet and innocent. So, instead of being his usually determined investigator, he's a goof-ball...and, potentially a dead one!

I think this is a good episode but could have been a great one. Had Quincy not fallen so hard and so fast, then this one would have seemed plausible. But the dead husband's body had barely stopped smoldering when Quincy and the widow started dating!! A slower and more believable story would have made this one work great, as is it's good but inconsistent and a bit hard to believe.
