Corny,but warm hearted endings.

JJ Starbuck is a millionaire who drives around in a 1960s Lincoln Continental Convertible (like Green Acres' Oliver Douglas)doing good and righting wrongs. In one particular heart warming episode,Starbuck's Lincoln breaks down in a town where the local restaurant (owned by Telly Savalas)was being forcefully taken over,Tellys son ashamed of his father and distant from him in his time of need.Starbuck finds out that Telly's character has cancer and tells the son.They re-team up to fight off the takeover of the family business.Starbuck's car gets fixed and everybody thanks JJ for his help.The family is back together and the restaurant is saved.Makes you want to tear up now doesn't it? A particularly good episode...as Telly Savalas would pass on a few years later.This episode is a good one to remember him by.
