Trivia

Jo's response to Flack's question of what the team's first move should be was, "Leave the Canollis; take the gun." This quote is an exact reversal of the famous line spoken by Clemenza in the movie "The Godfather." When Clemenza and his subordinate kill Paul Gotta, Clemenza tells him to "Leave the gun; take the Canollis." See more »

Quotes

Jo Danville: Did they contact you?
Detective Mac Taylor: "They"?
Jo Danville: The FBI.
Detective Mac Taylor: We're expecting a call?
Jo Danville: Well, they usually get their panties in a wad when we start getting in their business.
Detective Mac Taylor: And... we've done that?
Jo Danville: Well, AFIS got us the match off of the print that Danny recovered from Stan Ridgeway's makeup. The name is Bobby Renton. He's gonna be tough to track down, 'cause Bobby Renton hasn't existed for the past five years.

Jo Danville: But there's...

Very Dramatic & Involving Story
9 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Why would anybody kill an owner of a pastry shop? Were the muffins bad? Even crazier is why would the killer be dressed like a circus clown?

This was a very, very interesting episode with a good story behind the killing. Without giving anything away, Eddie Cahill ("Don Flack") is the star of this episode, having, it's revealed, connections to the killer.

Solving this complicated crime isn't easy but it will keep you glued to the set, especially with several dramatic scenes at the end.

JD Pardo does a nice job as the guy playing "Bobby Benton," the key man in this story, along with "Flack." It was also kind of cool to see actor Ron Glass again, who I haven't seen in a long, long time. He was a regular on "Barney Miller."

All in all, a very cool episode.
