Episode Quotes

Dirk: That's one method I haven't tried yet, Mr. Reid.

Dirk: What are you selling?
Hornet: How would Britt Reid, editor of the Sentinel, do for an opener?

Episode Goofs
Britt's wearing a blue suit but the Hornet has on black trousers at the dairy.

There are two explosions when Dirk drops one bomb while chasing the Black Beauty.



Cultural References
Dirk: You must have a touch of a Don Quixote in you, Hornet.
Hornet: I don't tilt at windmills, my friend.

Don Quixote is the hero of Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra's early 17th century novel Don Quixote de la Mancha. Tilting, in the context of the novel, means to joust. The phrase itself never appears in the novel: in fact, the first appearance of the phrase "tilt at windmills" is in Agatha Christie's Death on the Nile in 1937.
