A husband is driving his wife home after their anniversary celebration when he apparently runs down a man on a darkened street. The couple returns to the scene but can find no evidence of the man they thought they hit. Reluctant to go to the police because the husband had been drinking that night, they hire Mannix to make sure that no one was injured. Mannix approaches the only witness to the incident posing as the driver of the vehicle, but the witness suddenly claims that he saw nothing. Then the mystery deepens as Mannix is visited by two men who accuse him of having been hired to kill the hit-and-run victim. Written by aldanoli

Did You Know?


While speaking to Jimmy Vincent, a.k.a. Jimmy Vincenzo, Mannix says that his going rate for private investigator work is $100 per day -- one half of the price that Jim Rockford frequently quotes on "The Rockford Files," which premiered about five years after this episode was produced. See more »

Despite a few plot problems, a decent episode.

A husband and wife are driving home when they hit a pedestrian. They go back but the body is gone. The only witness suddenly announces that they hit no one and everyone is in a hurry to forget about this. However, the couple have consciences and decide to hire Mannix to look into it. Surely SOMEONE was hurt and they want to do the right thing. However, Mannix also comes up against a stone wall--as everyone insists nothing happened and everyone should forget about it. Eventually, the trail leads to a mob boss--a mob boss who was deported and has no business being in the US. Not surprisingly, the man is not about to let Mannix go when he learns the truth. Can Mannix manage to save his life, solve the mystery and do the right thing?

This is an enjoyable episode of "Mannix", as it's quite exciting and has a neat ending. However, it's also a bit sloppy. In the final big fight, dozens of shots ring out and hardly anyone is killed! Also, in the basement, Mannix is being pursued and the lady of the house (who should be scared for her own life) just stands there...doing NOTHING. I hate screaming/do-nothing females--they are a bad cliché and it's hard to imagine anyone just standing by and screaming when it would have been so easy to help.
