If I'm remembering this episode correctly, I flipped my lid when Ed Asner in a rerun of these episodes begins citing the amount of his pension in exactly the terms that Hackman did in the Kris Kristofferson flick "Cisco Pike" after I had viewed the latter film and realized not only that sequence but nearly the entire plot had been adapted for the show.
I had never seen so a clear-cut case of "wholly lifted" in my young life until the series "AlieNation" ripped off Don Johnson's Sonny Crockett tension-ratcheting "Maybe. He. Won't. Even. Twitch." shooting scene.
Regardless, this is one of the best episodes of "Mod Squad". Asner's terrific as the veteran, highly-decorated cop on the verge of retirement. But go rent "Cisco Pike" to see what I mean.
My only confusion is to which came first, since both were produced contemporaneously.
