Goofs

When Jim and Dwight (the rookie government agent) arrive at the hotel, they are driving a rented Mercury Monarch. As they get out of the car Dwight asks Jim to put the briefcase in the trunk. As Jim does so the trunk clearly shows "Plymouth" with the lettering centered over the trunk lock. Later, the Mercury is shown again from the rear and the model name "Monarch" appears only on the passenger side of the trunk not centered over the trunk lock. See more »

Quotes

Jim Rockford: This is Jim Rockford. At the tone leave your name and message, I'll get back to you.
Ofc. Billings: [beep] Billings, L.A.P.D. You know, Thursday is Chapman's twentieth year, and we're giving a little surprise party at the captain's. I think you should come. By the way, we need five bucks for the present.

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.
