Storyline

Betrayed by Josh Curtis, the A-Team has finally been captured and is put on trial for the murder of their commanding officer in Vietnam, Col Samuel Morrison. In court they recall exactly what happened during that fateful bank job on 27 January 1971. New evidence implies that Morrison was working with the Viet Cong and that Murdock may have discovered it. When The A-Team is asked to incriminate their favorite pilot, Hannibal makes a startling decision. Written by The TV Archaeologist

Trivia

The "crime they didn't commit" which led to The A-Team being fugitives from military justice was robbery of ten million piasters, the equivalent of one million dollars, from the Bank of Hanoi. See more »

Goofs

According to Hannibal's testimony, the bank robbery was committed in January 27th 1971 - long before the Vietnam war ended. But in the pilot episode The A-Team: Mexican Slayride, it is said that the robbery was committed four days after the war ended. See more »

Quotes

[after Hannibal described how they had robbed the bank]
Mayor Laskov: That's quite a heroic saga, Colonel. How much did you steal from the bank?
Col. John "Hannibal" Smith: Ten million piasters.
Mayor Laskov: That's about... one million US dollars. A bank of Hanoi audit showed a loss of fifty million piasters.
Col. John "Hannibal" Smith: Then some North Vietnamese got very rich. All we got was ten million.
