Did You Know?


In the intro scene when Hillary tells her father "I need to use the kybo" and he tells her to "speak English", Hillary is using a slang term for bathroom. A "kybo" is a temporary toilet set up when camping, often also referred to as an "outhouse" or a "porta-potty". The term is often used by some groups which promote camping activities such as Girl Scouts, Girl Guides and Boy Scouts. See more »

Heart Breaking

I am adopted and born in the era this show took place and will say the events of this were right on target for what happened to unwed mothers and babies during this time. I am reunited with my first parents after being separated 43 years and will say not only do I wish it hadn't happened as it did but also wish my first mother could have at least had a goodbye room to hold me, rock me, and comfort me before we were separated. I am thankful to have her in my life now I only wish it could have always been. It appears to me the writers of the Cold Case show have done their homework to make sure the facts were true to the time. So many times writers want to candy coat what really happened making it seems much easier than it really was. I appreciate that this wasn't the case with this sensitive subject.... Jo Ellen
