Quotes

Jim Rockford: [Rockford, as Jimmy Joe Meeker, has barged into Lessing's office] It's funny sometimes how people get invited to a picnic and never eat no chicken.
Richard Lessing: I've never been to a picnic. Now, there's a door over there and I suggest you go through it before Virgil here helps you off with your hat.
Jim Rockford: Ah, now I understand that kind of talk, I do. My daddy used to say,"When you look a man right in the eye it's hard to get your hand on his wallet."
Richard Lessing: How insightful. Virgil, throw this sodbuster out.

The "Larry Hagman" episode
21 February 2007 | by (Manchester, England) – See all my reviews

This is how I always remember this episode since soon after Larry Hagman became synonymous with his role as JR in "Dallas". Curiously at one point his character says "...the more I'm involved in the oil business the less I'm surprised". The things I like here - the plot revolving around the development of a submersible craft for oil exploration and the complexities of the financing and insurance gives the episode the feel of real substance to it. The fact that Beth's client was also a former college rival and the difficulties this places her in means there is always more going on than a straightforward investigation. The scam which Angel runs in restaurants show once again what a brilliant comic creation he is. He can always be relied upon by the writers to drop Rockford in more trouble.
