Interesting Questions, Facts, and Information
"The Pilot". Crumb appears in the very first episode of the series as the detective in charge at the scene of the bank robbery.
"Chicago Sun-Times". According to the episode "The Paper," the "Chicago Sun" and the "Chicago Phoenix" merged to form the "Chicago Sun-Times." In reality, the "Chicago Daily Times" merged with the "Chicago Sun" in 1948 to form the present-day "Sun-Times." The "Chicago Tribune" is the other main newspaper in the city.
in the back of a Camaro. To quote from the episode, Lois said, "A moment of passion in the back of a Camaro may have led to a wedding, but do you think it guaranteed a successful marriage? No sir, it did not."
Lowe. Sibella got the name "Lowe" from the "Lost Chicago" book she found on Gary's coffee table. The author's name is David Lowe. She told him that it was short for "Chloe."
Lily. Rose was the good twin and Lily the evil twin. This episode was done in the "film-noir" style, complete with a smokey bar-room, low-key lighting, a hard-boiled detective, and a femme fatale.
Rebecca. Gary had a major crush on Rebecca, and used his "early edition" to give her the correct weather forcast. Renee, Erica, and Emma are some of the names of Gary's other girlfriends.
Crullers. Gary was staying at the Blackstone Hotel because his wife had locked him out of the house. Chuck stopped by to wish him a happy anniversary. And to offer him a cruller (which they both hate, by the way).
Show Me The Monet. Gary pretened to be a police officer to help Clive replace a forged painting with the real thing.
Mr. Boggles. When Mr. Boggles hopped away, little Allie Chapman went looking for him and she quickly lost her way in the drainage tunnels under the city. (Allie Chapman was played by Taylor Momsen, who went on to play Cindy Lou Who in "How the Grinch Stole Christmas".)
cab driver. Emmit was Marissa's boyfriend. They met in the Valentine's Day episode, and he was in a few other episodes. He was studying to become a lawyer, but worked as a cab driver.
Patrick. Patrick worked at the bar before going to college. He wanted to become a teacher.
Jeremiah. In the episode "Fate", Jeremiah was a homeless man trapped on the roof of a burning building. Gary tried to bring him to safety by crossing a ladder onto another roof, but Jeremiah lost his balnce and fell.
Hickory. "The Fourth Carpathian", "Home Grown", and "Duck Day Afternoon" are the only episodes you actually get to see Hickory in. In "The Fourth Carpathian" and "Duck Day Afternoon", you only get to see Gary's house, but in "Home Grown", you get to see most the town.
Henry. Henry is the only person to figure out the paper on his own, and Gary was not very happy when he did.
J.T. Marley. J.T. Marley was posing as John Dobbs, Morris is the man who works in the newspaper morgue, John Dobbs was the agent after Marley, and Harry Hawks is the newspaper editor.
Gave it to Marissa to buy a dog. Yes, Gary gambled. In the first episode, Gary takes Marissa out to lunch after he quit his job. She tells him she likes to eat at the restaurant at the racetrack. While she is sitting at the table by herself, he is betting on horses. In the end, he gives the money to Marissa so she can get a seeing eye dog.
Bernie and Lois. Lois was in a total of seven episodes, and Bernie was in a total of five episodes. Bernies ends up arrested in one of the episodes, and Lois refuses to bail him out.

a cat. It is the same cat that Lucious Snow had.
Hickory, Indiana. Chicago is where 'Early Edition' takes place.
Spike. Gary buys it for her with money he earned from using the paper at the track. This is only one of the few times he uses the paper for profit.

McGinty's. He buys it with Chuck in season 2.
Amanda. Amanda is played by Mae Whitman, who appeared on 'Chicago Hope', a show someone referred to on the street after she got hit.
Strauss & Associates. It is only shown a few times throughout the series even though Chuck still works there. Gary's old boss makes several other appearances during the first season as well.
November 12, 1996. In other episodes, the timeline is changed for some reason. For instance, when it is Gary's 4 year anniversary of getting the paper, the date on that paper is different than the day he originally started to receive it.
So that she would someday get the paper. In the episode "Time", Gary discovered that Lucious Snow, the man who had received the paper before him, had not only saved his life, but given him the pocketknife (with Gary's initials on it) when he was eleven. It was a way of "passing the torch". When Lucious Snow died, Gary began receiving the paper. So Gary gave the pocketknife to Lindsay, so that when Gary died, Lindsay would start getting the paper (when he gave the pocketknife to Lindsay, the initials on the pocketknife magically changed to Lindsay's initials).

The St. Valentine's Day Massacre. The St. Valentine's Day Massacre happened in Chicago in 1929. Quite simply put, a gang led by Al Capone and a gang led by Bugs Moran began fighting, leading to the death of seven people.
Gary went down into the basement of McGinty's and messed with the fuse box. Getting shocked, he woke up in the 1929 version of the basement, complete with a change of clothes. From there, he followed the paper's changes, trying to stop the shootings.
Elmer Fudd. "Faith" was one of my favorites. In "Faith", Gary got hit by a car, and while he suffered little trauma, in the hospital he met an eleven-year-old girl named Rachel, who needed a heart transplant. In the end, Gary had to choose between Rachel's life, and a gangster's life.
Rachel told her mom that "his name is Elmer Fudd - it's an alias. He's with the witness protection program. The crime he witnessed is just too horrible to even think about".
latte. A favorite episode of many, "Fate" was an episode that made more than one viewer shed tears. Gary accidentally let a homeless man die, and the guilt raged in Gary throughout the episode. The episode ended with Gary sobbing and nearly dying, with a revelation from Lucious Snow, who told him to "Count the living, not the dead, Gary".
The line I gave was from the beginning of the episode, when Gary was on a date with his girlfriend, Erica. He wanted to stop for a coffee, when he only had forty-five minutes before an apartment building would catch on fire. Erica quickly talked some sense into the lovestruck Gary.
