On the money episode
22 July 2015 | by (The Last New Jersey Drive-In on the Left) – See all my reviews

LaRue (a nicely smarmy Kiel Martin) gets Vic Hitler (a hilarious turn by Terry Kiser) a gig at a seedy nightclub. Coffey (a fine Ed Marinaro) takes a lie detector test. Davenport (well played by Veronica Hamel) accepts Furillo's (Daniel J. Travanti in customary sterling form) proposal to tie the knot. Hill (an excellent Michael Warren), Renko (likable Charles Haid), and Bates (a sturdy Betty Thomas) work undercover on a bus. Belker (a spot-on Bruce Weitz) tries to overcome the death of his dad.

The volatile atmosphere created by the murder of a black man in the holding sell is extremely well captured in this episode, with the black community up in airs due to this gross injustice. Moreover, Bates has an amusing altercation with an obnoxious punk on the bus and there's an exciting shoot-out with several guys who try to rob the bus. Popping up in stand-out guest roles are Ron Silver as cagey lawyer Weiser, Ally Sheedy as enticing teenager Kristen, and Dennis Burkley as hulking brute biker Sonny. But it's the various poignant moments featured throughout that makes this particular episode so special: Furillo has a moving conversation with his ex-wife Fay (a touching performance by Barbara Bosson) in which he informs her that he's married Davenport, Vic's nightclub act concludes on a bittersweetly abrupt note, and Belker relates an affecting story about his father and how tough he was.
