Hoods snatch a stockbroker, and his sister hires Rockford for $23.64, because Jim's in the yellow pages and her big brother instructed her not to dial the cops. Jim's protective of the naive 25 year old bookkeeper, despite the tiny fee, because he fears her brother is dead, and she can't accept that her only relative, who's always taken care of her, may be mixed up in a securities scam.

Insecure securities
19 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I must admit to getting slightly confused at the plot and motives regarding my summary title, but the always exciting security scheme is at work here, and this leads Rockford to play an almost father figure to a baffled young lady. From what I gather, her brother(looked liked her dad, but I digress)is involved in a scam WITH the FBI to nab another party, and he ends up with $500,000 and involves his sister somehow, although he didn't want her harmed. The lead actress here was OK, as was her scenes with Garner, but the scenes without her were better. I enjoyed the scenes with Wayne Tippit, who played the FBI agent, as he and Rockford clashed heads, even though Jim got the upper hand. There's even a great moment later in the episode when Jim says to the agent, "you have your moments" as a compliment, and the agent basically says something arrogant like, "it pleases me that you approve". Great sequence there, my personal highlight. Lastly, we get a few scenes with Jimbo's car and some with Rocky in the trailer. That being said, the episode seemed slightly rushed as too much happened in just under an hour's time, even though I did enjoy it mostly.
