Did You Know?


This episode features one of the very few times a scene takes place in - and is shot in - Jim's bedroom. The scene takes place after Jim's left Lori's apartment after she'd been frightened at the airport. We see Jim drinking a glass of milk, and eating a cookie (Oreo, it looks like), and gets ready for bed, and cuts to Lori's when he starts to set his alarm clock. See more »


Evelyn 'Angel' Martin: [Rockford's Firebird pulls up in front of a dilapidated bungalow somewhere outside of L.A. He and Angel climb out, Angel talking with enthusiasm] Huh? What do you say? Is this what you asked for? Huh?
[He laughs excitedly]
Jim Rockford: Yeah, perfect... I couldn't have done better myself. How much?
Evelyn 'Angel' Martin: Look at that. You said no neighbors, right? Well, right over here is an empty lot and right on this side is an empty house, huh?
Jim Rockford: All right, Angel, how much?

One paranoid hit man
12 December 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Occasionally Jim Rockford does a pro bono case and usually for a friend. The friend here is airline reservation attendant Sharon Gless who while making a little small talk with a client she's helped before, John McMartin, she says something that gets McMartin on her case and wanting to terminate her. A narrow escape and Gless is on her way to see her friend James Garner.

McMartin has to be one paranoid hit man. Gless doesn't know what he does for a living but when she mentions casually how she took care of a flight to Detroit for him he gets huffy and flustered. Seems as though he did a recent contract there.

I mean really, he should have just ignored it or made a small joke. But McMartin is paranoid and therein lies the episode.

Nothing like having a PI for a friend.
