Storyline

After an off night at the shooting range, Reed leaves work and stops at an all night grocery. As he is leaving with both arms full of groceries, a young man approaches as if he knows Reed. He points out a friend in a green Volkswagon Beetle holding a pistol on Reed. Reed drops the groceries, pushes the young man, leaps, and fires at the car hitting it. The man in the car fires hitting his friend. The grocer heard only one shot as he comes out of the store, the car races off, and the young man hit in the head makes a dying declaration that Reed was gun happy and shot him. Reed is on desk duty until a review board clears him but the young man dies increasing the pressure on Reed. Malloy with a new by the book partner spends time on and off duty running license plate number combinations looking for the green Beetle. Written by Anonymous

Goofs

There is no way that a 1962 VW Beetle could ever get away from a 1972 AMC Matador police car. The bug had a 72 cubic inch engine with only 40 horsepower and a top speed of 72 MPH. Malloy's patrol car would do a quarter mile in 14.7 seconds and had a top speed of 125 MPH. They should have easily overtaken the suspect vehicle with very little effort. See more »
