The death of Jack Soo in 1979 marked the passing of both a fine comedy actor and one of TV's most memorable characters: Nick Yemana, the deadpan detective known for his dry wit and wretched coffee. This tribute to Soo features reminiscences by the series regulars as well as some notable Yemana vignettes--Nick's curious response to an ink-blot test administered by a police psychiatrist; his attraction to a Japanese woman who turns out to be a hooker; and his inability to stop singing after he innocently eats brownies laced with hashish.
