Goofs

When Rockford is searching through the dresser drawers in the episode of "Sleight of Hand," he shuts the upper drawer and a piece of clothing is sticking out of it. Then he looks in the other drawers. When the camera switches to him walking away from the dresser, the clothing that was showing is now suddenly missing. See more »

Quotes

Jim Rockford: This is Jim Rockford. At the tone leave your name and message, I'll get back to you.
Caller: Rockford, this is Mr. Dow. If you think I'm going to pay to have your car repainted, you're nuts! You can take your expense bill and *stuff* it!

Rocky Comes Through
31 March 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

This episode of The Rockford Files starts as a flashback as James Garner narrates to Noah Beery, Jr. the sequence of events that occurred after an idyllic day in San Francisco and the drive back home with a girl that Rockford is seeing and her little daughter. She walks in the house ahead of Jim who is carrying the sleeping little girl in his arms. But she's not there. Worse than that, a dead body is found by the police led by his good friend Dennis Becker. If Joe Santos hadn't been the one leading the posse Rockford would have been jailed that night.

This is one case that Jim Rockford is doing without the $200.00 a day plus expenses. When Garner finishes telling his story it's Beery who points out the one thing he hasn't considered because of his personal involvement, the part of the story that seemingly made no sense. Good old Rocky, he who keeps telling his son to get out of the PI business is the one who comes through with where to look.

It turns out that the woman's disappearance the murder on her property and still another murder of a woman who impersonates her are all part of a big case that Santos and Tom Atkins as Lt. Deal are working on. They owe Jimbo for this, but I doubt Atkins will see it that way.
