At the Scott residence in Holgan, MS, Wayne tries to convince the sheriff not to kick him out of his own house. The sheriff says that the new owners have foreclosed and points out Henry Retzing and his two sons, Randy and Dennis, who have just arrived to inspect their property. Wayne says that he hired them to fix his house but now they’re taking it from him and walks over, asking for some time. As soon as he gets close enough, he punches Henry. The sheriff and his men wrestle Wayne to the ground while Henry smiles in satisfaction...

Episode Notes
Jonathan Frakes has a cameo as a neck-injury patient at the doctor's office. He gets several reaction shots as he watches Nate talk to the rest of the team via earbud.

Episode Quotes
Wayne Scott: When you need help, really need help, they let you hang. They let you hang and it's your kid who pays the price.
Nate: We, uh... we all pay the price.

Eliot: Where the hell is he at?
Alec: Maybe he overslept.
Eliot: No, he doesn't oversleep. This guy sets an alarm to set his alarm.
Parker: A man with one watch knows the time. A man with two is never sure. I had fortune cookies for breakfast.

Sophie: Are you drunk?
Nate: Technically, no. I was drunk a couple of hours ago. Now I'm just hung over.

Nate: Besides, we're going with a much bigger scam. One of the classics.
Parker: The London Spank?
Alec: The Genevan Paso Doble?
Eliot: The Apple Pie. (everyone stares) It's like the Cherry Pie but with lifeguards.
Sophie: Ooh.
Nate: Glengarry Glen Death. It's like a mutual fund, but instead of stocks, you invest in death.
Parker: Is it me, or is he getting creepier?

Eliot: You know, we could get another chamber. And then put a brain with a tumor in that one. And then send the signal to the monitor for this chamber. Cross the wires. (everyone stares) What? I dated a neurologist.

Nate: Somebody find me a brain.
Parker: Ohhh yeah. He's definitely getting creepier.

Nate: You know, you talk too much. You should go skip some rope.
Eliot: What? Want me to skip something? I'll skip your drunk ass of this marble floor.

Cultural References
Alec: Dennis, the Willy Wonka worker bee.

Alec: Space Mountain is now closed.

Alec: Just call me the Scarecrow. Ready to rock. Now if I only had a brain.
