Evelyn 'Angel' Martin: [the episode ends as it began - with Angel getting a haircut, except, this time, it's Rocky who's playing barber, as Angel is sitting in a beach chair, drinking a beer, outside Jim's trailer] I-I'm gonna interject something here. I appreciate the fact you're cutting my hair for free, because, I'm so broke, but, uh, we're not getting that layered look that we were talking about, you know.

"That's Rockford, R-O-C-K-F-O-R-D"
8 January 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Noah Beery, Jr. wins a contest for a vacation in Hawaii and little does he know that's an important part of a mob laundering scheme where bundles of cash are sent to the contest winners while away and then retrieved with break-ins. But not all the contest winners had sons who are private detectives who take care of their father's business while away.

Not all those detectives have prison buddies like Stuart Margolin either who helps himself to some of the loose bills which he doesn't know are marked by the Feds for tracking. Angel pays off a loan shark played by Roger E. Mosley whom he's into with some of the marked loot and that starts a merry criminal justice ball rolling.

In the meantime Joe Santos has a dead mob courier who took a fall out of a window. It all ties nicely together, but it takes James Garner to do the tying.

Once again Angel Martin proves he's the last guy you want to be in a foxhole with. Best scene is his interrogation by Feds Wesley Addy and John Bryant where Stuart Margolin spills his guts and gets poor Beery some time in the Federal lockup. It's a good thing Angel such a good ferret for information otherwise Rockford might have left him in an alley somewhere.

Every Rockford Files episode with Stuart Margolin is special.
