Three. Two wrong numbers and an offer to cater a Bar Mitzvah. I told them 'no,' 'no,' and 'maybe.'

Yes. This is what happens when I can't afford my regular hairdresser.
Just remember, if you don't look good, we don't look good. Nice outfit; now that the first time you look like a real... girl.
Yeah, if I don't get my hair fixed, I'll need a guide dog.

The episode "Last of the Red Hot Vampires" ends with the dedication "In Memory of Mr. Blasko". Blasko was the real last name of Bela Lugosi. See more »
I laughed my ass off watching this show.!!! David Rasche had a ball spoofing Dirty Harry. This show sort of reminded me of Police Squad. They cancelled it because it was ahead of its time and people were too slow to catch all of the gags in it. Anne Marie Martin was wonderful as Sledge's partner and the chemistry between the two was irresistable. I have so many fond memories of this show and I only wish they would put it back in syndication.
