No. No. My dear sir, you're merely serving - not fighting off pirates. You brandished that like a weapon. Proffer the food - don't stab the customers to death.
Good evening, Leslie.
Mr. Gunn, that may be your considered opinion. Now, Lafitte, you suppose you can take your blade, return to the kitchen, and without impaling yourself - try another entrance? It isn't always simple.

Average episode unless you like ogling a shapely girl (Cummings) parading in her underwear and tight skirts. Then it really gels. Pete's hired by Paula to save her from her husband who she says is trying to kill her. But is she on the level since there's a ton of stolen money on the line. Good hook, as usual, along with one heckuva brawl in what may be a studio prop room. Looks like the brawlers broke about everything breakable, and catch that unexpected outcome. Then there's the old Irish guy who's working on a gas mileage extender. Talk about being prescient, and that was 50+ years ago. We could sure use him now.
Anyway, an underrated part of the show's success are the droll exchanges between Jacobi and Gunn. Here the chemistry is again on amusing display. One thing I've noted over time. Whenever a street is blocked off at one end by a cross-street, you can bet it's a studio set. Nothing wrong with that since it allows producers to create desired effects. This was especially significant to the Gunn series, which depended greatly on moody atmosphere. Note the water-slickened street scene here. Anyway, nothing special, just one more solid entry in an outstanding PI series.
