Did You Know?


During a presentation Eric refers to several men as "former Marines". In the real world, however, there's no such a thing as a "former" Marine; once a Marine, always a Marine; there are dead Marines, retired Marines, discharged Marines, and Marines no longer on active duty, but there's no such thing as a "former" Marine.

Henrietta 'Hetty' Lange: I imagine you're still smarting from where the Chief of Police just ripped you a new one.
Marty Deeks: How'd you know that?
Henrietta 'Hetty' Lange: Because I just experienced something similar from my Director. It seems we need to co-ordinate our operations a little better. My boss wants to assign a liason officer from LAPD. And your boss thinks it's a good idea.
Marty Deeks: Yeah. You guys don't need a liason officer.
Henrietta 'Hetty' Lange: I agree. I told him we already have one.
