Episode Quotes
Rosetta: We could have been killed.
Youngfellow: Lady, we still might.

Towers: I make it a rule never to molest peaceful citizens.
Ness: Peaceful! He's got a record a mile long.

Morelli: (to Towers) I'm sending over six more men. Put 'em in uniform and swear 'em in. Don't worry about hardware. They got their own.

Rosetta: I'm not asking for help.
Ness: I am.

Morelli: (to Towers) Don't worry about my neck, just worry about your job.

This episode is a bit of an acquired taste. Some Untouchables fans like it while others don't care much for it at all. Pretty good episode but not a classic from where I sit. The supporting Untouchables get more screen time than usual if that's your bit.
