Nucky makes preparations for the annual Celtic dinner on St. Patrick's Day, which are complicated when the dwarfs from Tiny Town who traditionally play the leprechauns insist on a raise and brother Eli wants to male a divisive speech supporting the IRA. Jimmy tries to get Pearl through the trauma of her disfigurement with drugs and Capone insists that she should leave the bordello. Written by duke1029@aol.cim

The purple magazine that Gillian peruses is the March 1920 issue of Photoplay. Actress Alice Joyce is the cover model about whom Gillian asks Angela, "Do you think she's pretty?" A readers poll in Ladies' World Magazine in 1915 (five years prior to this episode's events), Alice Joyce came in as second most popular film actress, after Mary Pickford. See more »


As Dale Carnegie became famous, he changed the spelling of his last name from "Carnegey" to "Carnegie" (around 1922). When Elias shows Nucky a pamphlet for a course he has been taking on public speaking, the pamphlet has the "Carnegey" spelling. As the show takes place in 1920, this spelling is correct. See more »
