Episode Quotes
Parker: (to Flint) You're trying to tell me that your guess is better than my guess?

Gloria: Am I good?
Maung Tun: Don't make a joke of yourself. You're good.

Gloria: (to Maung Tun) You don't want a doctor because doctor's ask questions, right?

Episode Goofs
Nitpick: Although it was a frequent practice at the time, one wonders why a Caucasian actor like William Shatner was cast in the role of a Burmese sailor when Naked City was one of the few shows of that era that often used ethnic actors.
