Storyline

Former military helicopter pilot A.J. runs a delivery service, Speedy Express, with his blind sister Lisa Perry. Garbage collection company manager Ike Hagen wants them to sell to him, and pulls all the stops to force them, including threats and violence against both vehicles and staff, so they hire the A-Team. When Face springs Murdock from the asylum, he believes his hand 'Lefty' has a vicious will of its own. Hannibal pretends to be the new owner, is swiftly abducted, hears they mainly want the building so he pretends to plan a six-store on the spot, and plants a wire. When he's sprung free, they hear Hagen is in illegal toxic waste disposal for Oxem Chemicals, underground into the city sewer system, and switch the drums with water. They get a written confession from the Oxem manager, but Hagen finds the wire and kidnaps A.J. and Lisa... Written by KGF Vissers

Goofs

Hannibal plants the bugged dart in Hagen's office by throwing it at the dartboard, yet B.A., through the bug, is able to hear very clearly that Hannibal has later been taken outside the office, down the stairs, and into a waiting car, as if Hannibal is still carrying the bug. It is, however, shown that the bug is quite sensitive. Hearing a car outside doesn't mean you yourself are outside. The same is true with this bug. See more »

"Faceman" Peck: But, eh, you have a plan, right?
"Hannibal" Smith: Well, Lieutenant, if you can't get in, you're gonna have to get them out.
H.M. "Howling Mad" Murdock: You know, I have to tell ya, I find your, your, your small quotes to be utterly inspirational. As a matter of fact, it's the most interesting part of my day.
