Quote1.png Carl, Carl, Carl, here you go again... Bobbing and weaving, because you're too scared to take a hit. It's just like I taught you in the ring. No matter how much you duck, eventually, you're going to have to knuck' and buck. Quote2.png

  • The Gang Starr song the episode is named after is "Now You're Mine", from their album Hard to Earn. The song was produced after the two members of Gang Starr fought with each other. This could be seen in the episode in the ongoing conflict between brothers and former best friends, Luke Cage and Diamondback.
  • The song featured in the episode is "Son of a Preacher Man" by Dusty Springfield.


  • Shades says, "what'chu talkin' 'bout, Willis?" when questioning Diamondback's orders. The line is a reference to the catchphrase of Arnold Jackson (Gary Coleman), a character from the 80s TV sitcom Diff'rent Strokes. Willis, in this situation, is Diamondback because his real name is Willis Stryker.
  • When ordering Lopes to escort Claire downstairs, Sugar calls her "Night Nurse", which is a reference to a character called Night Nurse in the comics, who Claire is partially based off of.
  • Stephen Rider reprises his role as Blake Tower from Marvel's Daredevil in this episode.
  • When about to drop Candace Miller to her death, Diamondback bids her farewell by saying to her, "bye, Felicia." This is a reference to a quote from the 1995 film Friday. The quote usually has the connotation of saying goodbye to someone that is irrelevant.
