Gardeno: [after Barney asked him to shave off his large beard] Cute, ain't I? Clean cut. Charming. Now when I bust some punk in the street and I say, "Freeze! I'm a police officer", he's gonna look at me and laugh, and say "Ha ha ha, look at that kid". Then he'll pull out a piece and blow my keister off.
Barney Miller: Don't be ridiculous.
Gardeno: Freeze! I'm a police officer.
Yemana: Ha ha ha.

Michael Lembeck and Charles Fleischer
21 February 2014 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Hair" introduces a new detective to the 12th, a loner transferred from narcotics named Gardeno (Michael Lembeck), whose long hair and heavy beard must go if he's to fit in the squad room (never seen again following this episode). Yemana introduces him to the washroom: "that explains the sign!" Wojo discovers that Gardeno, like himself, is a Vietnam vet: "well I guess you didn't have time to change since you've been back!" In his lone appearance since the filmed pilot, Henry Beckman plays a drunk, who responds to his one phone call, "you know anybody who delivers?" Newcomer Charles Fleischer, soon to play Carvelli on WELCOME BACK KOTTER (in only his second TV role), scores as a junkie/thief, a seeker of wisdom and truth: "I like to smoke while I seek!" Barney's wife Liz shows up with Fish's wife Bernice (Florence Stanley, second of six), who is shocked to find her husband returning from a scheduled appointment in a massage parlor that's already been busted three times (she's reassured he fell asleep on the table). Why didn't he ask her: "haven't I always told you, you rub me the wrong way?" Bernice made her next appearance in the episode "Fish" (played by Doris Belack), while Florence Stanley returned for "The Recluse."
