With Sally at home with the new baby, Mac is happy to entertain his mother, Beatrice, who has come to San Francisco for a visit. She has some big news: his sister Megan is getting married. Beatrice likes the young man but Mac's quick check of his background reveals that he has a manufactured identity and history. When he confronts him, he admits to being Randy Murphy and claims to have changed his name and history to hide his working class background from them - though not Megan - so they wouldn't think less of him. He does, however, seem to be keeping secrets and when Mac sees him in surveillance footage with a known thief, he concludes that his future brother-in-law is a con artist. With the wedding day fast approaching, Mac decides to run a little con job of his own...but then Murphy has been keeping a few secrets and has a surprise or two of his own. Written by garykmcd

Did You Know?


Randy Murphy says he works for "Central Security" (the word Agency wasn't used). For some reason in the mid 1970's, NBC or Universal did not want to use the real names of governmental agencies. It was common for the CIA to be called something like the National Intelligence Agency, or as in this case, just Central Security. See more »

A conman in the family
11 February 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Two new McMillans are introduced in this episode of McMillan&Wife because Rock Hudson's sister Gretchen Corbett is planning to get married and that means that his mother Mildred Natwick also comes to San Francisco for the ceremony.

The intended bridegroom is David Birney gets caught in a couple of white lies enough to arouse the suspicions of the Police Commissioner. It turns out that Birney's white lies have him involved with a pair of known confidence men who are part of an ongoing investigation of a murder of a known counterfeiter and another unsolved murder of a Japanese businessman that has Hirohito himself more than interested.

I'm hardly believing that Birney was juggling both his romantic life and a rather complicated con. And it isn't over even when the case is done.

Not one of the better episodes.
