Goofs

At the beginning of this story, when Jim and Rocky arrive in Hawaii on a trip they think is a prize that Jim won in a drawing of some kind, which turns out to be a scam. Rocky says that he has never been in Hawaii before. However, Rocky had visited Hawaii in a third season episode, Dirty Money, Black Light (#3.22), where Rocky also won a trip to Hawaii (but he went alone), which also turned out to be a scam, although a different kind of scam.

The end of the line
8 April 2006 | by (South Pasadena, CA) – See all my reviews

This was the last "Rockford Files" episode to be shot and it was a chance for all the regulars to make one last appearance and get a trip to Hawaii.

Like many episodes, Rockford is convinced to help out an old friend, in this case his former commander in Korea, in a seemingly simple task that will become far more dangerous as it unfolds.

Rocky gets a chance to complain about his son not appreciating him. Angel shows up briefly just to be his usual sleazy self. And Dennis Becker appears and gets to complain about doing a favor for Rockford.

Like many "Rockford" stories, the reasons for just why everything happened just gets tossed in at the end. The episode is really more about the characters and not the storyline.
