Goofs

When detective Mackey is placing the two bricks of cocaine into his bag after the Armenian drug dealer raid, he says "I don't want my kids going through that UC Northridge hell." The college in Northridge is part of the California State University system, not the University of California system. So it is "Cal State Northridge", not "UC Northridge." A streetwise experienced detective in Los Angeles like Mackey would certainly not make that mistake. See more »

Quotes

Vic Mackey: [after Ronnie sneezes] Is there anything you're not allergic to?
Ronnie Gardocki: Sheet metal.
