The Bobble Head doll that was in Dallas' apartment was that of Scotty Bowman, coach of the Detroit Redwings at the time, holding the Stanley Cup. This was from his last season as their coach in 2002 when they won the NHL championship.

The name of the band in the Russian bar is the Red Elvises.

Episode Quotes
Dallas Roberts: Start walkin'. You'll thank me in another life.
Deaq: You got a name, slick?
Dallas Roberts: Sure do,... buuh-bye.

Van: I feel for any guy who is so committed to staying in character, he lets himself get beat down and loogied on.

Billie: What are we toasting or we just getting lit on the job?

Episode Goofs
The picture of Deaq's family that he shows doesn't coincide with what they look like in the episode, "Overkill". This is most likely due to the fact that Overkill is 16 episodes later and probably had not even been cast yet.

Cultural References
Dallas Roberts: Go back in and tell him you love him in those Tim Conway golf videos.

Tim Conway did a string of comical satires on golf instructional videos called 'Dorf on Golf'. In them he played a midget who tried to improve the viewer's golf game.

(About Wisdom Bailey.)
Deaq: Six months for hanging a white rapper out a window and shooting five or six brothers that tried to leave his label.

This is a lot like the stories of Suge Knight, the CEO of Death Row records. He allegedly hung Vanilla Ice upside down out a window over money and has allegedly threatened rappers he had under contract to stay with his label. He also spent a bit of time behind bars.

Deaq: Alright, how about this one, "We deal in lead, my friend".
Dimitri Federov: Steve McQueen - The Magnificent Seven.

The Magnificent Seven was a 1960 film starring Steve McQueen about an opressed village in Mexico that puts together seven gunfighters to defend their homes and property.
