Goofs:
Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): Tony describes a diamond as "three carats, grade E, flawless, one minor inclusion". This is contradictory: by definition, a flawless diamond has no inclusions (internal flaws) or blemishes (flaws on the surface). A stone with one minor inclusion would be clarity grade VVS at best. "E" is the color grade and indicates that the diamond is colorless.See more »

Love that ending!, 3 March 2010
Author: lor_ from New York, New York

This is one of my favorite segments of the long-running series, thanks to a beautifully written, directed and acted ending (which I won't give away, to avoid spoiling the fun).

Harmon brings up his game to meet the challenge of acting opposite the great Gena Rowlands, cast as his estranged, ex-mother-in-law. Since he's investigating a murder, and she becomes a "person of interest" if not the prime suspect (wow -I can imagine Gena vs. Helen Mirren already!), the finale is fraught with suspense. But I'm singling it out for a back-of-the-neck tingle in the surprise execution of the story's final twist -immensely satisfying, and up there (in reverse) with the Bogie/Mary Astor climax in John Huston's THE MALTESE FALCON. Also worth noting is the denouement which follows, featuring a brilliantly ambiguous facial expression by Rocky Carroll summing up the whole story.

The public has in a rare example of good taste made this the numero uno show on TV, and they have been rewarded with classic acting in this segment.
