Quotes

Tony Marino: [he's offering Leo money to give him back his belt so he can hang himself] I could write a letter to my attorney. It's as good as a cashier's check. $10,000... just give me my belt and go away for a few minutes.
Leo Schnitz: No soap, Marino, you get nothing.
Tony Marino: Maybe I'm just trying to do the honorable thing.
Leo Schnitz: It's not going to be that easy for you.

Corrupt cop Marino (an excellent performance by Vincent Baggetta) gets busted and spills the beans on Marty Nichols. The sniper shoots Coffey (likable Ed Marinaro) in the arm before offering to give himself up at Freddie's diner. Belker (Bruce Weitz in top growly form) works undercover as a rabbi.

Belker dressed up as a rabbi not surprisingly rates as a total hoot to watch. A subplot involving a love triangle between three police officers makes a valid point that personal matters can directly compromise one's professional life. A tense confrontation scene between Hunter (terrific work from James Sikking) and the sniper proves to be genuinely nerve-wracking. Moreover, there's a nice and touching conversation between Fay (an endearing portrayal by Barbara Bosson) and Davenport (a spot-on Veronica Hamel) in which Fay tells Davenport that she can be a surrogate mother to Frank Jr. This episode further benefits from bang-up guest contributions from Linda Hamilton as the sweet Sandy, Caroline McWilliams as the distraught Ann, Barry Tubb as eager rookie Peyser, George Wyner as the nervous Bernstein, and, in a memorably twitchy, yet still sympathetic turn, Dennis Lipscomb as the unhinged and dangerous sniper Freddie.
