The title credits roll in conjunction to Provenza and Flynn opening and closing the door of the garage, making it appear as if they are the back of the garage door itself.

Episode Quotes
Provenza: (to Flynn about the body) I promise you, after the game is over Blondie will be just as dead.

Brenda: Fritz, it's about my investigation...I never thought I'd be saying this, but I need you to make a federal case out of it.

Sanchez: Chief, if you want to stop Campbell from saying where he found the body... (gestures towards the interview room) you'd better do it now.
Brenda: Why aren't they using Robbery/Homicide's interview room?
Sanchez: Technical difficulties.
Daniels: There was a problem with their monitors. (holds up a length of computer cable) Bless me, Reverend Mother, for I have sinned.
Brenda: (shaking her head) Oh, we are all going to Hell...

Brenda: I have the FBI on speed dial, Mr. Roth. In fact, we're so close I'm practially in bed with them.
