Storyline

An F-14 Tomcat crashes nearby while students watch from a school playground in California. While Harm investigates, he smells a cover-up; he eventually discovers both a second F-14 (previously undisclosed) and a civilian death on the ground (previously unknown); he finally gets some answers about the strange crash and the strange program. Harm negotiates a good settlement for the daughter of the civilian victim; he impresses both a blonde (his assistant in California) and a redhead (the daughter of the victim). Bud's anger-management course degenerates into a fight. Mac beats the general during an annual requal on a pistol range. Written by DocRushing

Cmdr. Sturgis Turner: Bud, I defended you in court. I know better than anyone that you're not a violent man, but... for a mild-mannered guy, you sure do piss a lot of people off. Plus, uh... you've got a father who's a bully.
Lt. Cmdr. Bud Roberts: Ah, I've gone out of my way to be everything that my father isn't and none of the things ...
