Episode Quotes
Georgie: (after Marty pulls a knife on her) Nitti would kill you for that.
Marty: Nitti sent me.

Nitti: (to Georgie): You're not a dame! You're a cash register!

Georgie: (to Marian) Nick should see you now. You don't look so cute and cuddly.

Marian: (about her boyfriend's death) You get over everything in time.
Ness: It's only been three days.

Rico: (about Maxie) He took the bait.
Ness: Let's reel in the line.

Dolov: Me, I don't buck the Organization. It ain't healthy.



Episode Goofs
Narrator Walter Winchell wrongfully identifies Georgiana Drake as "Georgiana Blake" in one line of dialogue.



Analysis
Ruth Roman ranks as the nastiest and most ruthless female villain in show history as she gives both Eliot Ness and Frank Nitti runs for their money. Yet even though she is nasty and ruthless, Roman manages to endow her character with a certain degree of sympathy.
