Guest agent: trapeze artist Crystal Walker



Episode Quotes
Tosk: You know, I just won my bet.
Crystal Walker: What bet? With who?
Tosk: With myself. Said you'd come by to see me before you left.
Crystal Walker: Oh, you have a very low opinion of yourself.

Cinnamon: (Dan's) all wrapped up in his work, forget it.
Crystal Walker: If you say so.
Cinnamon: I'm sorry.
Crystal Walker: Do you mind if I worry about him?
Cinnamon: I said I was sorry.
Crystal Walker: You worry about Rollin, right?
Cinnamon: I worry about earthquakes.

Crystal Walker: Dan, have you ever been up on a high-wire?
Dan: No.
Crystal Walker: Most people are high-shy, how do you know you're not?
Dan: I'll find out. If I am, don't wait for me.

Willy: You know, I hate to admit it, Barney, but I'm tired. I'll sure be glad to get home.
Barney: What? And quit show business?



Episode Goofs
Rollin binds Vossek's hands together so he can wrap them over Rollin's chest as they slide down the wire. When Rollin approaches the wire, Vossek doesn't have his hands around him. The camera cuts to a quick reaction shot of Willy and Barney. When it cuts back, Vossek has near-instantly put his tied-together hands around Rollin's chest.


When Cinnaman and Crystal fight, the overhead shots make it clear they're on astroturf, either because the stunt women are in a studio or because the astroturf was put down for additional protection.


Supposedly Dan is sliding down the wire using his belt. However, in the long shots it's clear that the stuntman is using a pulley device.
