A re-run of many of the gags from the original TV series 'Police Squad'. An Airplane type spoof, this time with the an incompetent lieutenant (Drebin) who always 'gets his man'. Visual gags come thick and fast, and it's impossible to catch them all with one viewing. The plot.. Queen Elizabeth II of England is coming to town, and Vincent Ludwig has plans to assassinate her using a brainwashed baseball player. Written by
The Villain. Even Mother Teresa wanted him dead.

When Ed looks at the picture in the hospital, he says "I LUV YOU, out of Caracas. A Panamanian ship.." Caracas is in Venezuela, not Panama. Also, when the picture is shown to the audience, there is no indication of the ship's registry (no visible flag, crest, or wording). Ed would have no way of knowing that the ship was from Caracas.
