John Dullaghan and Larry Gelman
21 July 2014 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Contempt" marks the fourth of six appearances from John Dullaghan's Ray Brewer, a former derelict now working with the Salvation Army, reporting a series of thefts involving both cash and food. Lt. Melinda Holly (Maggie Brown, first of two) would prefer the police not be involved, but is convinced by Wojo's persistence. Larry Gelman (second of four) plays Sidney Bouton, who objects to not being served at a restaurant that apparently caters only to the physically attractive ("all I wanted was an omelet!"). The staff even took to comparing him to the Elephant Man ("I admit that I'm no Gavin MacLeod!"). Barney's day in court involves him testifying in an $8 million cocaine case, which concludes with him being cited for contempt for not revealing his confidential source. At the end of the day, he reports to Officer Perelli (Jack Murdock, first of two), checking in with an unseen cellmate (William Windom, second of three), who doesn't like to be ignored. To be continued...
