Trivia

The scene where Trixie trims the calluses on Al's feet with a razor was suggested by Paula Malcolmson. She had seen her father do this for her grandfather when she was a child. Her final line, and Al's response, were improvised. Malcolmson had been worried that Trixie might be killed off. But the scene convinced David Milch that there were depths to her relationship with Al that were worth exploring. See more »

Brom Garret: Wouldn't surprise me in the least.
Charlie Utter: That would make these accomplices you're talkin' about... dangerous people to deal with.
Brom Garret: Yes, I quite take your point. No honor among thieves.
[pause]
Brom Garret: Well. Thanks for your time: I'll pursue my remedies in some other fashion.
[leaves]
