    Howdy Sledgeheads, the Shapiro reference could be to Robert Shapiro, a lawyer who represented celebrities. He would go on to be part of the team that defended O.J. Simpson (though that was after Sledge Hammer, so it’s not a reference to that specific trial).

    One thing I thought odd about this episode (Iain, you watch American football, I believe) is that though the boyfriend is referred to as a quarterback he acts more like a running back or wide receiver. A quarterback throws the ball. When Dori throws him the ball she is the quarterback, and he a receiver.

    You are right about Jack Webb. He’s a conservative by-the-book cop. I teach Dragnet occasionally when I do classes on the police procedural.

    Every breath you take; every move you make; I’ll be watching you” is a reference to The Police song “Every Breath You Take”. He’s quoting the song there.

    That’s all the trivia I have!

    • Hi Steve. Thanks for this, some great trivia. Agree completely on the QB. One too many knocks to the head already!
