Episode Quotes
Latito: (to Marco) A man likes to come around with good news like Santa Claus.

Marco: It shoulda gone right, Louie.
Latito: So who gets the blame--the porter who cleans up or the owner of the mess?

Latito: (to Marco) One mistake they turn their head. The next mistake it's your head.

Marco: (to Marconi) One relative I got and he's stupid.

Rico: Not a bad haul last night.
Ness: Not good enough. I wish we'd gotten the big boy.



Episode Goofs
Why are there so many books in the apartment being rented by Charlie Steuben and his fellow Purple Gang members? None of them appear to have read anything other than a comic book or a racing form.



Analysis
An episode that contains some decent acting performance but a weak, pathos laden script. It all adds up to one of the weaker entries for Season Two.
