Trivia Edit

Location: About 14 minutes into the episode, right before the pawn shop scene, there is a nice street shot of Clifton’s Cafeteria which has been a landmark at 648 South Broadway in Downtown Los Angeles since 1931. Founded by Clifford Clinton it reflected his Christian ethics by feeding 10,000 people free in a 90-day period during the Great Depression. Submitted by Eric Cooper, 2 July 2010.

Goof: About 19 minutes into the episode, we see the exterior of a building at least 20 stories high. But once inside, we see the elevator only goes to 12 floors. Submitted by Eric Cooper, 2 July 2010.

Sightings: As Burger redirects the testimony of a witness, we find Distinguished Gentleman #1, Quiet Old Man #1, and “Miss Carmody” watching events unfold. A little later, we see a Pencil Mustache Man on the defense side of the room. Read more about these recurring but anonymous spectators here. Submitted by gracenote, 3/3/2011.

Perry: There was never anything between you and Reed?
