Location: Chicago

Episode Quotes
Lt. Stewart: Funerals of newspaper reporters are always well-attended.

Episode References
The name of a mob murder victim in this episode, Joe Fuselli, is the same as a character in the pilot episode for The Untouchables.

Barbara Stanwyck--Round Two. This one is talky and boring in most spots although it does contain a nice performance by Anthony Carbone as the oddly named Rudy Portuguese.
