Plot Summary

Slightly offbeat television police comedy-drama. Tony Scali is the Police Commissioner in a small town, where solutions to difficult situations often require considerable creativity. Tony's easygoing manner and clever intellect are much more useful to him than weapons or brute force in his fight against crime. Written by Tad Dibbern

Trivia The character of Tony Scali was supposed to be in his late thirties. Michael Chiklis was actually twenty-eight-years-old when cast as Scali, in part because he looked much older than his real age. When Chiklis lost weight during the course of the series, the network, fearing that such weight loss might negatively effect the ratings, reportedly had Chiklis stuff his clothing to appear older and heavy set. Chiklis was also discouraged from shaving his hair off to look still older. See more »

Cyd: Thanks, but I think one is enough.
[Long pause]
Cyd: It's on my shoulder, okay?
Tony: Did I ask?
Cyd: In a manner of speaking.
