This episode features the "Prophet's" gang again, who were last seen in the episode Slipknot. We also learn the leader's name (who was originally just called Prophet's Leader) is Savuto.

The original promo for this episodes had "sexual sounds" being heard over the phone, but was taken out at the last minute due to content.

Episode Quotes
(After beating up Halper)
Shane: You know what, tell Antwon there's a new scoop law. (Pointing to Halper) Come pick up his dog shit.

Suvato: We'll check it out.
Vic: Good, look for flowers, he poses as a delivery guy to get into the house.
Suvato: Right holmes.
Vic: Someone sees him I want a call.
Suvato: Hey! aren't you gonna swear us in?
Vic: ...Blessed is he who delivers this asshole onto me.

Dutch: So you're going under with Slick, right?
Claudette: Do me a favor, get somebody else.
Dutch: It's our case-
Claudette: Well I'd rather not.
Dutch: Well, that's great. That's fantastic. (Claudette starts to walk away) Hey! Hey don't you walk away from me! (Claudette pauses) Not after I've had your back everyday, for the past six months. (Ducth walks over to her) Look. This is our way to get back into the rotation, okay? They'll never buy me in this one, it has to be you.

Monica: You've cost this city tens of thousands of dollars in clean-up.
Raga: Send me a bill.
Monica: We will. But you tell me who's planning this war with Poolboys, who's giving you these messages, I can make things better. (To Danny) Bring her something to eat while she thinks it over.
Raga: Burger and fries.
Danny: Settle a bet first. What's Raga stand for?
Raga: Richeous Angel, Gorgeous Ass.
Monica: ...I don't admire the artwork, but I gotta admire the confidence.

Episode Goofs
Dutch has a late reaction to the knock ont he door. You can tell it was a mis-timed sound cue.

Look carefully, you can see Green Tape on the floor of the kitchen in front of the fridge, used as a marker for an actor. It's visible while Vic is talking to Dutch.

Cultural References
Antwon: We got these cops coming after us like Stormtroopers.

An obvious reference to the Star Wars series of films.
