The episode: “Hercules Unchained,” ep. 408
The riff: Added by Crow after someone tells Herc that he’ll be sending “servants, books and provisions” to his brother.
The explanation: They’re quoting a track by the same name, “Lawyers, Guns and Money” by Warren Zevon from 1978. The main character is a ne’er do well of sorts who has gotten himself mixed up into all kinds of trouble in South America. Throughout the song he instructs his dad to send lawyers, guns and money to bail him out of the jam he has found himself in.
Novelty factor: My friend Allison loves this song. She makes me listen to it all the time. Thanks, Allison.
