Jim Rockford's California Private Investigator License is seen up close in this episode, number 463025, and lists him as "Height: 6' Weight: 195 Age: 37." Interestingly, James Garner's height in real life is 6'2", and at the time this episode was broadcast, he was 46 years old. Since there is no issue date on the license, there is no way of knowing when Jim Rockford was actually age 37. See more
As Rockford leaves the airport he is followed. In an attempt to lose the tail he pulls into a parking lot. When the tail fails to find him in the lot he tries to leave but Rockford drives toward him and forces him to back up, making him run over driveway spikes and giving him 2-4 flat tires. Moments later the tail drives out of the lot with no damaged tires. See more
I don't know what's goin' on, but believe me I don't want any trouble.
You already got trouble. The only question is whether you're going to wake up tomorrow breathing air or dirt.
