Memorable QuotesEdit

Burke: We are the Scorpions, when we sting, you die.

Hannibal: Face, you surprise me. Now where is that indomitable thrust?

Murdock: [to B.A.] Oh, Frowning One!

Lily: What are you going to do?
Hannibal: Lady, if I explained it to you, you wouldn't understand.

CommentsEdit

Face slips up and calls Hannibal by name while under cover.

The setup requires Hannibal to predict a long string of dice rolls, which he does flawlessly. His method for doing so is never explained.

The team was uncharacteristically sloppy in their first encounter with the Scorpions, in that they didn't pay enough attention to notice people reaching into their pockets and tossing grenades. The team had guns pointed at the Scorpions, but when they ran for their vehicles none of the team fired.

Face acts jealous when he hears that Tawnia has been seeing someone else.

Somehow Face has authentic release and transfer documents when he arrives at prison to collect a prisoner. It is never explained how he acquired them.
