In this season 1 episode of the Rockford Files, Jim is hired by a young woman to help locate her friend, who's been missing for some time. The very beginning has Jim and 2 other guys(who were they?)grave digging looking for missing money, then shortly after 2 goons break up the party and Jim gets grazed by a bullet and falls into the empty hole in the ground and sustains a serious concussion; he spends a few weeks at the hospital, as the episode is shown to us in flashback form. Most of the remaining scenes revolve around Jim and Sandra Turkel(Sian Barbara Allen), who looks like a teenager. We get to see how Rockford creates his phoney business cards, with something looking like a printing press in his car, as he plays 3 different undercover roles, and this is where James Garner shines. He plays an associate of a funeral director, a federal agent(Jim was conned by fake agent Harry Stoner, and returns the favor), and he plays a doctor with funny looking glasses while on a train. George DiCenzo, Susan Damante, and James Murtaugh round out the cast, although there's no Rocky or Dennis to be found. This episode ends on the rare occasion where there is no convenient conclusion, as the money is never found, as Jim is left pondering where the money is.
