Storyline

When Lieutenant Hunter upsets clerk-typist Rhonda Kimmel, she barricades herself in the male toilet LaRue spends the night with Cathleen McConnell, the victim of a car-jacking, but during the night she receives news of the murder of her husband - LaRue wonders if he has been set up as an alibi. An illegal cable TV installer is arrested, and Davenport turns out to be one of his customers; she is unwittingly involved, but Furillo uses the situation to engineer an end to their separation. Rachel Goldblume's rapist is released on bail, murders his girlfriend, and is re-arrested. Two new rookie officers cause trouble; Laurence "Larry" Swann (Tim Robbins) by his timidness, and Randall "Randy" Buttman by his arrogance and insubordination, leading to first day reprimands from Sergeant Bates and Captain Furillo. At an end-of-shift gathering of rookies from across the precincts, Swann is tied up and stripped, and forced to engage in sexual activity with a prostitute in front of the other ...

Early appearances by future stars
28 May 2017 | by (Boston, MA) – See all my reviews

This episode features three young guest stars who would go on to future fame. Pivotal to the title story as a rookie cop is future Oscar-winner Tim Robbins, looking incredibly boyish but immediately recognizable. I had to look more closely to spot Mykelti Williamson (credited as Mykel T) as another rookie cop and Jere Burns as a rapist/killer. Both Williamson and Burns turned up a few years ago on one of my favorite modern cop shows, Justified. It was a kick to see their younger versions from this 1984 episode of HSB.
