Face was already enjoying the possibilities to spend the profits from a no-sweat $300,000 job offered by a foxy millionaire when Hannibal guesses right it must by a Decker trap, and goes collect the money dressed as a bum, but a real one gets the briefcase and the MP arms before his nose, and is even erroneously sprung by the other team-members while Smith checked out a restaurant where the bum told him to ask for a certain Wiiliam to get free food- he finds himself in the hands of a dodgy group giving him a full medical and then ordering him to dig his own grave, but escapes and tells the team they must be after homeless men's identities, which sell for a small fortune to criminals. Therefore they set up their own 'mission' to draw potential victims and the goons, run by 'reverend' Face and evangelist Murdock, which sets more in motion then they bargained for...

Throughout the episode, Murdock is obsessed with turning himself invisible. He claims that all he needs to do to turn invisible is think about "white paper." This is a reference to an earlier Stephen J. Cannell series, "The Greatest American Hero". See more »


When Face is scamming the building, he claims it was designed by an architect "before his untimely demise in the mid-19th century." Murdock then says that the architect was hit by a streetcar in 1948, which would be the 20th century. See more »


"Howling Mad" Murdock: [as Father Harry Dean Hanover] Men, remember some of us won't be coming back, but those of us that do, will be back and those of us that don't come back, won't be coming back. Now I point this out because if you don't come back, you won't be back and if you do come back, you will be back. Any questions? Road to Hope Rangers, mount up!
