Trivia

When Lazlo looks down at the boys sleeping in the street, this is a nod to a picture by Danish-American photographer Jacob A. Riis, who famously documented the lives of the poor in late 19th century NYC in his photo series "How the Other Half Lives". Riis worked as a crime reporter for several decades and was close friends with Theodore Roosevelt. See more »

Goofs

Banker J.P. Morgan, at his request, has his photograph taken twice with Roosevelt. Morgan was very sensitive about his misshapen nose (which is depicted) and tried to avoid being photographed as much as possible. See more »

User Reviews

 
Good show, disorganized episode.
9 April 2018 | by CharWomanSee all my reviews

The part of this episode that should have been extremely tense lost a great deal of energy by showing all the team members distracted and off-task during a high-risk operation, which was confusing and out of character for most.
