Interspersed in the discussion are clips from movies, TV shows, and newsreels that highlight a particular point of discussion. Clips include: the John Belushi film Continental Divide, an un-credited documentary, and a 1955 newsreel featuring Mayor Richard J. Daley giving a speech about public housing. Quotes include:

1:30 Joe Cummings: “I stopped counting dead [bodies] at 3466.”

14:38 Joe Cummings: “I’ve got a solution to the [problem of] missing mothers: build detention homes and orphanages next to senior citizen centers. There’s a lot of love to be given by both sides.”

21:11 Anne Keegan: “I see a real lack of leaders. Politicians: yes. Leaders: I don’t see ’em.”
