Quotes

Policeman: Joseph 'Happy' Cartello? You want to file assault charges?
Jim Rockford: You're damn right. Assault and battery, public endangerment, illegal parking, grinnig hideously in public. You make the list, I'll sign it.
Babs Honeywell: So I'll sign the complaint, too, I'm a witness.
Jim Rockford: No you won't; don't need you on the complaint, I'm plenty.
Nurse Marylou: Might leave a little scare, but it's mostly in a wrinkle, so it shouldn't show too much.
[attending to the cut on Rockford's face, in the hospital]
Jim Rockford: My modeling agent is going to be crazed.

Another CBS Rockford movie with him vs the Bi-Polar Mafia man
4 September 2000 | by (Alameda, CA) – See all my reviews

Rockford's friend from the Sandcastle, Babs, is investigating the murder, 18 monthes earlier. She suspects a local mobster and is harassing him to get him to make a mistake that she can tell the police about. Unfortunately the mistake he makes is killing her when Jim Rockford is on the job. As usual a group of friends collects to help solve the crime, and Jim signs up for Lt. Chapman's class on criminology to get the inside track on the investigation, and becomes the class cut-up.
