Jeff takes on fashion design piracy amid a parade of swimsuit models
Swimsuit and sportswear manufacturer, Surf 'n Sun, hires Jeff Spencer to discover who is stealing their new designs. By the time they show the new line to department store buyers, a rival firm has already sold them the same items. Jeff enlists the aid of Kookie (seen tossing boxes down chutes as well as keeping watch from closets at Surf 'n Sun) and Suzanne as a model at the rival firm, Rainbow Modes, to help catch the design pirates.
Roscoe wanders through the episode as comic relief, showing off his latest winnings at the race track and handling the switchboard in Suzanne's absence. Stu and Rex put in a brief appearance at the end, meeting in Jeff's office to learn how the case was resolved and how Roscoe's big day at the track went.
An entertaining if superficial look at the world of early 1960's fashion design, manufacturing and theft, this episode spends more time on runway shows and models' dressing rooms than creating suspense. Fans who like to see Kookie and Suzanne away from the office will enjoy it.
IMDb's cast list was incomplete so I added names of series regulars who appeared but was unable to catch the names of the actors who played Polly, a S 'n S model, or RM's Cliff Jarrett when the list of guest appearances flashed so rapidly at the end of the episode.
