Goofs

When Jim and Susan are driving from Las Vegas to Reno, there's a scene where the sun is directly in their eyes, even with the sun visors down. Since the trip is mainly North by North-West there is no way this could have occurred. See more »

Quotes

Jim Rockford: [Rockford bends down and looks into open car window of rival P.I. Kirmit Higby] Hi Kirm, it's good to see you crawling out from under your rock from time to time.
Kermit Higby: I thought I gave you a good lesson last time, Rockford. What's wrong? Don't you remember how I spread your nose out for you?

Jim Rockford: Looks that way, let me help you.

More Lee Purcell!
15 January 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a typical early episode in which the producers were still developing the dramatic thread that would define the series.

While some "Rockford" purists feel the first season was by far the best written, I think the middle years, '76 and '77, are when the character development and writing fully meshed and reached their true peaks.

In The Dexter Crisis I was a little annoyed by the cut away shots of the girl's speedometer during the last car chase in that they were not taken from a Camaro.

All and all not bad with one exception: Gorgeous Lee Purcell, epitomizing to me the super sexy woman of the 70's look, was not given enough screen time!
