Did You Know?


Murder vic Kia Rowe's first name is a military acronym: Killed in Action (K.I.A.). The last name could be the acronym for "Rules of Engagement" except the spelling of the characters last name is "Rowe" and not "Roe" which is a valid variation of the word (i.e. singer "Tommy Roe" or the landmark case of "Roe v. Wade"). See more »


In the opening scene, several white-on-blue street signs are visible on light posts. New York City does not use this type of sign anywhere. See more »


Dr. Sheldon Hawkes: You know I've never been fishing, never even thought about trying. Seems kind of boring.
Detective Danny Messer: Until you hook something. I went fishing with my old man once on a pier near Battery Park. I caught the sweetest striped bass, must have weighed close to thirty pounds.
Dr. Sheldon Hawkes: Did you eat it?
Detective Danny Messer: Threw it back! Would you eat anything that came out of the Hudson?
Dr. Sheldon Hawkes: Good point.

Lots of Material In This Episode
22 October 2006 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

The episode opens in very dramatic fashion as a body comes suddenly crashing down on a young couple's windshield. Apparently she had been killed and thrown off an overpass onto the street. She was a dancer, it is surmised, and that's the main clue to find out who murdered her. That, and a winning Lotto ticket. Mac, Stella and Eddie all combine to work on this case.

The second story begins when Danny and Sheldon are called to an alleyway and find a dead smelly (fish odor) body that has a big bullet hole through the man's chest. It turns out the hole has been made by a swordfish impaling the man. This part was the most interesting of the three cases.

A third story, over 16 minutes into the episode, occurs when Lindsay is assigned to find out why a tram operator died. That death winds up related to the dancer and has so many twists and turns it would make your head spin.

In truth, this whole episode is a bunch of ups, downs, suspects, twists and turns.
