Trivia

When Jim and Rita are following Dr. Nevitt, he stops at a Mobil station, where the fuel prices are .69, .72 and a whopping .73. Before anyone says how 'high' prices currently (2017)) are, those sane prices are equivalent to $3.13, $3.27, and $ 3.31, adjusted for inflation (sill doesn't make me feel better, though).

Jim Rockford: Rita...
Rita Capkovic: Yeah, but Jim I had such a good time spending it!

Return of Rita
22 August 2006 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

Rita Moreno makes her second appearance on the series as Rita Capkovic, the hooker with the heart of gold. This time Rita is doing business when her "client" is taken out by mobsters. Rita sees who does it, and they know she's seen them. So naturally Rita turns to Jim for help and protection. Not a big fan of the Rita Capkovic character (I liked Ms. Moreno much better as her "Hey, you guys!" character on "The Electric Company") but this is a pretty good episode, enlivened by the appearance of "Godfather"/"Barney Miller" veteran Abe Vigoda, who puts in a fine performance as a mob boss, kind of a flip side to Rocky's lovable character.
