George Murdock and Phil Leeds
13 April 2014 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Group Home" was the one episode among the last five concluding this third season that Abe Vigoda's Fish made a rare appearance, and includes one of his most indelible images on mugging detail, dressed as a woman, wondering whether to use the men's room or the women's. Popping in for a brief spell is Florence Stanley's Bernice (fifth of six), taking Denise Miller's Jilly (third and last appearance) and John Cassisi's Victor (second and last) to see the dentist. Phil Leeds (second of seven) plays Lou Hector, the unfortunate fellow who sees Fish walking by his park bench, making him an offer he couldn't resist (Fish: "why didn't you leave me alone, I told you to!" Lou: "I thought you were flirting!" Fish: "what did you offer me 20 dollars for?" Lou: "that's all I had!"). Harris has invested $35 for a genealogy report on his family background, having viewed the recent broadcast of ROOTS, and is stunned to find his ancestors living in Scotland; either that or his grandfather owned a liquor store in Cleveland. In his second appearance is George Murdock, better known as Lt. Ben Scanlon (11 episodes), here for the only other time in the part of Master Sgt. J. R. Reville, hoping to identify a bomber (Don Calfa, first of seven) threatening a recruiting facility (his revolting description of the suspect's cough is enough to make Harris cringe). A strict military disciplinarian, Reville takes an instant dislike to the Japanese Yemana, until learning they both served on OUR side during WW2 ("so it didn't make any difference to YOU who won!"). James Cromwell (first of four) plays the police artist who sketches an accurate depiction of the bomber, still upset over the army conducting germ warfare experiments in the New York subways, which they discontinued by 1970 (Fish and Barney decide to take a cab).
