Eliot Ness, acting on anonymous tips, has already picked up off of Madikoff's previous runners. Corbin gets picked off too getting gunned down in a shootout with Ness, Hobson,and Rico...

Location: Chicago

Episode Quotes
Rico: (about the wounded Corbin) I wouldn't wanna give odds.

Luciano: (to Madikoff) Pavanos don't take. I take and you like it.

Luciano: (to Madikoff) You got a dirty house. You better clean it up.

Pavanos: Maybe you forgot I don't say your name without spitting.
Madikoff: Somebody wants to see me in jail.
Pavanos: I don't wanna see you in jail. I wanna see you dead.

Hobson: (about Madikoff) He'll plant two of his boys in other cars. They'll be right behind you.
Ness: I don't think so. You and Rico will.

Episode Goofs
Narrator Walter Winchell wrongly identifies Agent Rossman as "Rossi" in the dialogue.

This Romeo and Juliet mob style episodes has its moments but you walk away with the feeling that you should have gotten a lot more than what was presented. Especially the lack of screen time for veteran heavies Jack Elam and Warren Oates.
