Quotes

Jim Rockford: This is Jim Rockford. At the tone leave your name and message, I'll get back to you.
Caller: Hi, Jim, we couldn't reach you so we went ahead with the job and I know you're really gonna dig it! But if you don't I suppose we could always tear it out.

So easily fooled?
13 May 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

I can understand Jim Rockford being taken in the way he was in this episode. He and James Hampton have a childhood relationship, in fact as a kid Hampton lived with the Rockfords for a spell as a foster kid. But when Beth Davenport gives her OK on a deal Hampton is proposing, that's where I get a little suspicious. Gretchen Corbett is usually pretty sharp, she must have been having an off day.

Now Hampton is a successful businessman in the trucking industry which certainly making Rocky proud. And he's got a sideline as a motivational speaker. Now he wants to turn his company over to James Garner temporarily because he's getting a blackmail squeeze. And Jim Rockford becomes a business tycoon for a very short time.

Of course it's too good to be true. Hampton is up to his eyeballs in fraud and he's got both the Feds represented by Ken Swofford and the Mafia represented by Jerome Guardino after him. Now they've got Garner in their sights as well.

I couldn't quite wrap my mind around the fact that Garner could be so easily fooled in this one.
