When they thus cause the disappearance of Dr. Brian Lefcourt, who practiced Archeology there but owns several newspapers and is engaged with reporter Tawnia Baker, she sends in the A-team, who find it poetical the masquerade as a coffin's escort after springing Murdock -who now claims to be directing 'the' movie- from the lunatic asylum in that very coffin.

Quotes

"Hannibal" Smith: [Murdock is in a coffin, talking to himself] What is this all about?
"Faceman" Peck: Oh, this is gonna be fun. He's making a movie, a classic little film called 'Closed for Remodeling'.
"Hannibal" Smith: [Hannibal contemplates this as Murdock jabbers on inside the coffin] Well, that's already opened. I saw it on a theater marquee last week.
"Faceman" Peck: Don't you do that to me, Hannibal, one lunatic in this outfit is enough!
