The message left on Jim's answering machine is: "This is Marilyn Reed. I want to talk to - is this a machine? I don't talk to machines!" See more »


When Rockford calls Mr. Moss to report the $10,000 check has been stolen, Moss rebukes him by saying,"You were hired to find Miss Wade and give her the check. You've lost her and the check." Rockford had only told him about the missing check; Moss had no way of knowing that she was also missing. See more »

Bug off, Jim
11 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

For this gritty episode, Rockford's on location in Las Vegas searching for a woman in order to hand her an insurance check, but of course, certain factors get in the way of an easy transaction. There's plenty of recognizable faces like Ron Rifkin, Mills Watson, and George Wyner, all having other appearances in this series; Jesse Welles, who played Nancy, was only decent, and she also has guest starred a few other times. The most notable moment for me, personally, was the slick chase on foot between Rockford and Tom Robertson(Rifkin) inside the Hoover Dam of all places, and it probably was real how both men were easily out of breath when Jim eventually catches him, as both had to take a break on the steps. Nancy was a lounge singer somewhere, but was discovered by the crooked Robertson, and signed a contract with him to play in Vegas, but she never saw that much cash to show for it, and he and his goons are skeptical of Rockford's presence. In the end, naturally, the cops catch the bad guys, and soon after, Rockford has that cool chase scene. I wouldn't call this close to one of my favorites, as not many from the early seasons are, but the writing was solid and the story was interesting, as well as the many cool sights.
