While speaking with Coop after being laid up in the hospital by the motorcycle gang, Jim tells Coop the gang members are 'one percenters' (also expressed as "1%ers'). One percenters' are (usually) motorcycle club members who do not comply with the law, as opposed to the other 99% of the motorcycle riding population who do comply with the law. See more »


Jim Rockford: This is Jim Rockford. At the tone leave your name and message, I'll get back to you.
Florence Boyle: [beep, a very attractive voice comes on] Jim, this is Florence Boyle. You worked for my husband last month in Glendale. You were so helpful then, and, well, I have a problem of my own I'd like to discuss... confidentially of course...

Cooper okay. Heavy stuff.
14 January 2012 | by (Rural Illinois, USA) – See all my reviews

Bad things happen to both bad and good people in crime dramas.

This one gets really disturbing quickly, and adds weight to the entire episode.

The acting by all of the major players was very good. This episode does seem to be a showcase for the Cooper character, who performs a convincing transformation to get the job done.

Because of the nature of the activity in the first few minutes, the conclusion isn't as satisfactory as one comes to expect from a Rockford Files episode.

Also, the behavior of Dennis is a little bit too close to that of Perry Mason's Hamilton Burger for my taste.
