Early in the episode, the blond, teenage boy seen selling Amgel's stuff is listed as 'Buddy' - who's screen name is Buddy Foster, and who's real name is Lucious Fisher Foster IV (whew!). He's the older brother of Jodie Foster, and Buddy - who worked as a child actor - appears here, in his next-to-last professional appearance. See more »


When Jim returns from his meeting with Dominic Marcon on the golf course, he finds Rocky putting away groceries in his trailer. Rocky approaches him during the conversation holding a box of Grape Nuts Flakes, but during their conversation it turns into a box of Kellogg's Corn Flakes, even though Rocky never goes back to the grocery bag or the kitchen cabinets.

This is a terrific segment of the great Rockford Files, and has many aspects, including excellent writing, which make this episode a very memorable one. It's quite surprising how this was fit into a program which lasts only an hour; on my season 3 DVD disc, it barely went 50 minutes. Without writing the entire plot, it basically revolves around Angel buying a piece of land, and the local mob wanting him out of the way. Robert Loggia is very effective playing the boss, and has a few terrific scenes with Rockford on the golf course, and another with his nephew, who is ordered to kill Angel to prove his loyalty; the nephew(forget his name at the moment)plays the nervous mobster quite well, and is good friends with Jim, and that confounds matters. They share an interesting scene in the trailer when he tells Jim he needs to kill Angel, who's stashed in Jim's bedroom, and you can tell the man is both confused and scared; there's also a small dose of Rocky and Beth, but not until the latter parts. The scenery, especially when both Jim and Angel travel in Jim's car while looking for the latter's "property", is excellent. There's something about Jim Rockford in his car cruising the roads on a warm and sunny day which I enjoy very much to watch. I highly recommend this episode if you get the chance to watch it.
