Trivia

After Jin first meets Arnold Love, he gets the check, which is dated '10 22, '74' - which, even though it's a fictitious prop-check, the date on it would be pretty accurate for when this scene had been filmed, as it's usually about 6 weeks - 2 months on average during regular season production for a TV episode to go from production to first airing.

Goofs

Rockford's picture is taken outside the courthouse, but when it appears in the paper he is standing in front of a black background. See more »

Quotes

Doris Parker: [Jin's been asked to come to Mrs. Parker's home, as she has more information, which she hope will encourage Rockford to stay on the case. But, he's hesitant, as he's already been beaten up, charged w/ filing a false police report, and is facing the possibility of a $10 million lawsuit] You're turning into a big disappointment for me. Don't you ever think about anyone but yourself?
Jim Rockford: [Matter-of-factly] No. Well, yeah, sometimes at Christmas.

A tentative client
4 November 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

An officer of Ned Beatty's company Fiscal Dynamics comes to the Rockford Trailer and is looking to hire James Garner. But Garner can't get any information out of him, not even his real name. But John Carter has good reason to be scared and Garner sees that well enough when two thugs come into his trailer, knock him out and spirit Carter away.

Others might forget and certainly Garner has no reason to pursue this case, but getting beat up by a pair of thugs will tend to set some people off. He finds out about Fiscal Dynamics and its president Ned Beatty a most paranoid individual.

But he gains another client in Sharon Spelman and there's a murder of a man who owned a printing shop Val Bisoglio that Spelman swears is connected to the goings on at Beatty's company. Her own husband was killed in an automobile crash that she says was suspicious.

The two part story leaves off with a tentative alliance with Spelman and Garner.
