Trivia

The title is based on a combination of jokes. The first is from the line con men have about their victims - there's a sucker born every minute. Since the con in this story involves maritime shipping the joke is now there's a sucker in every port. See more »

Goofs

After the ski mask guy rakes the door with machine gun fire, there are obvious holes in the door. However, when Rockford makes his escape through the same door the holes are gone in the close-up and reappear in the master. See more »

Quotes

Jim Rockford: [in his finest con-job Texan billionaire drawl] Nick, I've got a thing about loose talk. If you were to run out into the brush for about nine miles and whisper this to a gopher, I'd make it a personal point to bust the wheels off your wagon.

hard one to judge
30 June 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode started out strong, and has a very good cast including Howard Duff, Joan Van Ark(she of the very high eyebrows), Steve Landesberg, and Jack Riley, who you may recognize from Newhart. The biggest qualm was there wasn't that much Jim Rockford, especially the middle of the episode. Although it doesn't happen to me often with this fine show, I wasn't hooked in and it didn't grab my attention like normal; maybe it was because no one was who they seem, and the entire premise just seemed unrealistic to be able to pull off this major ruse. To add to this, Christine(Van Ark)even sells her father out at the end of the show, which seemed very pretentious. Most of this takes place on a shipping port, and there's hardly shots of the trailer or the beach, plus there's no Rocky or Dennis, which always adds flavor. It boils down to Marks(Duff)pulling a con on Jim early on and Jim returns the favor later on, but it was hard seeing Marks as an enemy to root against. I'm sure this won't be a popular review for the big Rockford fans, as I consider myself, but perhaps this episode was a bit too complex for me to get into and there were a few too many characters.
