The fourth episode of the US science fiction crime drama, Life on Mars known as Have You Seen Mother, Baby, Standing in the Shadows was first broadcast on 30 October 2008 produced by 20th Century Fox Television and ABC Studios for ABC.
Sam busts a guy for accosting his mother, only to find out he's a loan shark and she's into him for a thousand dollars. When his mother doesn't want to prosecute, she, unwittingly, leads Sam down a road that puts him on the outs with Annie.
- This episode is an relatively faithful adaptation of the fourth episode of the British version of the series. Among the main differences are that Sam does not temporarily accept a payoff and that his mother goes to the club in an attempt to pay off her debt.
