Trivia

Several times in the episode, Ironside sarcastically calls Mark 'Judge Sanger'. Years later, in the 1993 reunion movie The Return of Ironside, Mark, who studied law in the original series, passed the bar and became a lawyer, did indeed become a judge! See more »

Quotes

Robert T. Ironside: [Looking at a piece of potential evidence outside a door, behind which a hostage may be held] This is a peppermint candy wrapper; break the door down.
Mark Sanger: This candy wrapper looks like a street car transfer.
Robert T. Ironside: Looks like a candy wrapper to me; must be the generation gap.

More of a hindrance
8 February 2017 | by See all my reviews

Over the course of the run of the Ironside series we saw Don Mitchell as Mark Sanger develop from an angry young man into a police officer. He's still got a lot of issues with cops as we see in this episode.

After going to a party and dropping his date off the next morning Mitchell awakens to find that the girl was found dead in a public bathroom and that someone slipped her a hotshot of pure heroin. Of course Ironside and his elite team take the case. But Mitchell is more of a hindrance than a help.

Especially when he breaks into the apartment of the chief suspect and taints evidence that could be used if a search warrant had been granted.

Note good performances from Roy Glenn as the grieving father, Burr DeBenning as the suspect, Parley Baer as DeBenning's attorney and Dwayne Hickman as the host of the part.

A bit of recidivism on Mark Sanger's part for understandable reasons.
