A 227 Reunion

When Southland reunited Marla Gibbs and Regina King from 227, the writers threw in a few winks to the audience.

During their initial encounter, they don't share much time together. However, Regina's character begins to question Marla's lucidity. During their second encounter, Marla Gibbs refers to Regina as "Brenda" and wonders where "Curtis" is. On 227, Regina's character was named "Brenda" and had a boyfriend named "Curtis". A nice little nod to the audience.
