    • France: July 12, 2007
  • This is the second episode where Shane Vendrell doesn't appear, although his name still appears in the opening credits.
  • Actress Svetlana Ivy Dizon was 18 years old at the moment of filming, but she plays an underage prostitute in the episode.
  • During a conversation, Detective Dutch Wagenbach and Vic Mackey make various references to Nazi Germany. Vic calls Dutch "Herr Wagenbach" using a heavy German accent, after being ordered by him to do something. "Herr" is a nobility title in Germany meaning "Lord". During their exchange, Dutch refers to Vic's "Gestapo tactics" as a potential reason for the case to be dismissed. Gestapo was the secret police of Nazi Germany infamous for their interrogation techniques.

QuotesEdit

  • Dutch Wagenbach: Vic!
  • Vic Mackey: Yes, Herr Wagenbach?
  • Dutch Wagenbach: You got a problem with me running the show, take the night off.
  • Vic Mackey: I thought you wanted this case solved.
  • Dutch Wagenbach: I do.
  • Vic Mackey: No. You only care about being the one who solves it.
  • Dutch Wagenbach: When I do, I don't want it thrown out of court because of your Gestapo tactics.
