Did You Know?


Beth Davenport: Two years ago when I first met you, I thought, 'This is the one', and I took out my little lariat and I swung it over my head and I took dead aim, and I tossed. I must have thrown it 50 times since then. But I gotta hand it to you, Jim, you're a tough catch. Sometime, I don't know, last year I guess, I sort of settled for friend and I started looking for someone with more long range possibilities. David looked like a good candidate.
Jim Rockford: Thanks, but I'm still jealous.

A Fool for a client
2 October 2012 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

This episode of The Rockford Files gives Jim Rockford's personal attorney Gretchen Corbett a chance to shine as her personal attachment to Rockford is revealed.

One of the constants of the Rockford Files until she left the show and passed James Garner on as a client to Bo Hopkins in the last season was attorney Beth Davenport constantly coming to the aid of Rockford and I mean 24/7. Garner needs an attorney like that and for some reason he just takes Corbett for granted. In just about every episode, a lot of the time because he shows the cops up, other than Joe Santos, they really have it for him. Corbett is that rarity a lawyer who makes house calls. Taking her for granted like that makes Garner a fool.

So when of his played by John Saxon starts putting some moves on Corbett, the green eyed monster takes over. And then he's got a real jackpot when a pair of stiffs show up in the famous Rockford Trailer.

This was a well done episode where some hidden feelings on behalf of Garner and Corbett finally get aired.

James Rockford you are a fool not to realize what you have.
