Trivia

This episode was a "backdoor" pilot for a possible spin-off television series starring returning "Rockford Files" characters Marcus Aurelius 'Gabby' Hayes (Louis Gossett Jr.) and Gandolph 'Gandy' Fitch (Isaac Hayes) as a pair of private investigators, one a smooth talker (Gabby) and the other the muscle (Gandy), with the proposed title of "Gabby & Gandy." The pilot was not picked up to series. See more »

Gandolph Fitch: [limousine phone buzzes] Hey Gabby, you got your phone fixed.
Marcus 'Gabby' Hayes: ...yeah... Hello, Marcus Aurelius Hayes.
Tom Flannery: [condescending voice] Mr. Hayes this is Tom Flannery at Limousine World. How much longer are you going to need our car, sir, on a trial basis before you decide to buy it?
Marcus 'Gabby' Hayes: Well, Mr. Flannery, I may need it a little longer, you see, I've been thinking of buying a fleet of five or six...

Poaching a case
5 January 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Two of the characters that the Rockford Files introduced previously come back for this episode and look to form a partnership. Isaac Hayes as Gandolf Fitch and Lou Gossett, Jr. as Marcus Aurelius Hayes may both be black, but this is a case where the similarities are truly skin deep.

Gossett was Jim Rockford's former parole officer and Hayes was the Hammer of Cell Block C back in the joint. Isaac decides he might want in on the PI racket and James Garner takes him over to Hayes who has a better line of con than Garner ever could muster.

Garner has a missing heir case from the county and it's quite a tidy sum, $600.000.00 to be precise. It's also not ethical to poach a case from another PI, but Gossett has always had a loose sense of ethics.

Sadly this was a pilot not picked up by television for a series. That's a pity because Hayes and Gossett have a nice chemistry between them.

As for the heir, he's got great reason not to want to be found. Must be if he'll ignore 600 grand.
