Tuesday May 2nd, 1:00pm. Mickey Patchek was a snitch, a dealer, a peddler of information. His clothes were as cheap as his reputation. So when he phoned me with some information to sell I was surprised that he wanted to meet me in the heart of Chicago’s chic-chic high fashion district.

Episode Quotes
Carl: (opening narration) Tuesday, May 2nd, 1:00pm. Mickey Patchek was a dealer, a snitch, a peddler of information. His clothes were as cheap as his reputation. So when he phoned me with some information to sell, I was surprised that he wanted to meet me in the heart of Chicago's chichi high-fashion district. What started out as mild surprise culminated in stark raving terror.

Carl: He gave me a deadline – with the accent on “dead”.
Tony: Well, threats are the standard situation with newsmen, Carl. You know that. It goes with the territory like the high salary.

Carl: Can you get up out of your chair and walk to the window? Can you make it??
Tony: [arriving at window] Now what do I do? Jump?
Carl: You want me to open the window for you? Look. Look, look down there in the street. See the guy leaning up against the car reading the newspaper?
Tony: Yeah…
Carl: Well, does he look like a scoutmaster to you?!?
Tony: Well look, Carl. We can call the police; they’ll pick him up and shake him down.
Carl: On what charge? Slow reading in public?

Carl: Okay, how much is it?
Witch: There is no charge. A nominal contribution will be appreciated.
(The witch offers a bowl and Carl puts some money into it.)
Witch: Not that nominal.

(Carl has discovered that Madelaine can kill people with a kind of doll.)
Madelaine: I could make you… so important.
Carl: How? By killing off all my enemies? You’d have to buy out a controlling interest in a doll factory for that!

Cultural References
Carl: Yeah, yeah, floats like a butterfly...
Carl is quoting part of prizefighter Muhammad Ali's most famous tagline: "Floats like a butterfly, stings like a bee." It referred to the boxer's tactic of tiring opponents with footwork and then finishing them with fist work.
