Former military helicopter pilot A.J. runs a delivery service, Speedy Express, with his blind sister Lisa Perry. Garbage collection company manager Ike Hagen wants them to sell to him, and pulls all the stops to force them, including threats and violence against both vehicles and staff, so they hire the A-Team. When Face springs Murdock from the asylum, he believes his hand 'Lefty' has a vicious will of its own. Hannibal pretends to be the new owner, is swiftly abducted, hears they mainly want the building so he pretends to plan a six-store on the spot, and plants a wire. When he's sprung free, they hear Hagen is in illegal toxic waste disposal for Oxem Chemicals, underground into the city sewer system, and switch the drums with water. They get a written confession from the Oxem manager, but Hagen finds the wire and kidnaps A.J. and Lisa... Written by KGF Vissers

Murdock impersonates James Mason each time his right hand takes on the persona of 'Lefty'. See more »


At the end, it is revealed that B.A. used his own name to order something through the mail. This is odd as he is a fugitive on the run from the military. It is worth pointing out firstly that it's not stated if B.A.'s "name" is in fact an alias he has adopted, however, assuming it is, the team have used their real names on numerous occasions. Plus it is inconceivable that the military would mount a full scale operation every time the name of a member of a team wanted for so long popped up in the U.S. Mail system, for example. See more »

H.M. "Howling Mad" Murdock: You know, Colonel, It's not gonna be easy going in there to find out what that guy is all about.
"Faceman" Peck: But, eh, you have a plan, right?
"Hannibal" Smith: Well, Lieutenant, if you can't get in, you're gonna have to get them out.
H.M. "Howling Mad" Murdock: You know, I have to tell ya, I find your, your, your small quotes to be utterly inspirational. As a matter of fact, it's the most interesting part of my day.
