Episode Notes
The IMDB wrongly lists Robert Stack appearing in this episode as his Untouchables character, Eliot Ness. Stack never appeared on the series although Lawless Years star James Gregory did appear on an episode of The Untouchables entitled Jigsaw.

Episode Quotes
Ruditsky: (about Creel) An outlaw. He preyed on the ganglords themselves.

Max: (about Bobo) He hasn't moved since the day Billy Boy almost got him.

Creel: (about Bobo) Keep right on squirmin' until Billy Boy gives you the old rockabye.

Bobo: (about the bounty on Creel) Spread the word around. Bobo pays fifty grand on delivery.

Kiki: The cops'll give you protection.
Creel: And the hot seat.

Ruditsky: We took Bobo unscathed. He was still unscathed when the state of New York strapped him into the electric chair.
