About to be executed, former crime czar Doug Quinn announces in an interview from Death Row that when he dies the ones who testified against him will die too. This isn't good news for Toots Brendan who was one of the State's main witnesses against Quinn but he inexplicably heads to Isola anyway.

Episode Notes
This episode marks the first appearance of Paul Genge in the recurring role of Lt. Byrnes.

Alvy Moore, who plays a hit man in this episode, is best known as goofy county agent Hank Kimball on Green Acres. Moore would return in Step Forward.

Barbara Stuart's best known TV role is that of Bunny Oleson, Sgt. Carter's girlfriend, on Gomer Pyle, USMC.

Episode Quotes
Brendan: Quinn's friends might wanna know who really put him in the chair.
Morgan: They might at that. Why don't you tell 'em?

Carella: What are you doing back?
Brendan: I'm looking for an honest cop. They're hard to find.

Carella: Everybody has their ups and downs. Even crooks.

Meyer: (about Brendan) Wouldn't it save a lot of money to throw this clown in a cell?

Havilland: (to Morgan) We kept Quinn's old cell warm for you.

Good episodes with Alfred Ryder and Barbara Stuart leading the way for the guest stars and Norman Fell taking honors for the series regulars. We also see comic Dave Barry cast against type as a mob boss.
