The office for the newspaper in this episode is the same building used as the studio for QSKY radio in the movie FM (1978). The advertisement to the left of the building has the sign "QSKY FM 71.1". See more »
Incorrectly regarded as a goof:
On the stairs of the crypt, Coop yells "Dive, Jim!", so Rockford dives behind a tree.
One of the gunmen in the drive-by is using a silencer; this hits Johnny Bongard in the chest, then you hear the shot from the other gun. See more »
This is Jim Rockford. At the tone leave your name and message, I'll get back to you.
Joseph 'Rocky' Rockford #2:
Sonny, this message ain't for you, it's for me. I just wanna remind myself to pick up the big ladder at the paint mart.

Pretty weak episode in which Rockford goes undercover at a tabloid newspaper fashioned after the National Enquirer. He's been hired by a doctor to find out if they've broken in to his files and stolen information for their gossip mag. For the second time, Jim calls upon his new attorney, John Cooper (Bo Hopkins) to help him solve the case. Yes, I'm a big Gretchen Corbett fan (Beth Davenport was HOT) but honestly there is no chemistry at all between Garner and Cooper. Maybe his laid back style of playing was too similar to Garner's style...except Hopkins was almost lethargic. Most of the episode's screen time is spent not with Rockford or Cooper, but with a crime family who's had its leader's medical files stolen. Unfortunately they were not a particularly interesting crime family and thus this is not a very good episode.
