Goodbye Mr. Fish
17 April 2014 | by kevin olzakSee all my reviews

The conclusion of "Goodbye Mr. Fish" begins with the retiring Fish still a no-show, with even Bernice wondering where he is (Luger's ice cream melted in his trunk). He finally arrives humming, having walked all the way from Brooklyn, and jumps at the chance to go out on a liquor store robbery. Wojo reports that Fish caught up with the guy (Timothy Jerome) and 'introduced him to the sidewalk,' seemingly more determined to do his job than usual. In fact, Barney has to force him to deal with the fact that today is his last on the force, after 38 years of solid work, turning in his gun at the end of the day, congratulations all around. Larry Gelman (first of four) plays Edward Sellers, a candidate for the 'twinkie mobile,' according to Harris, guilty of trying to take out the cameras at the local grocers store. After a word from Capt. Miller about his euphemisms, Harris makes the call to Bellevue: "we've got a customer for the enchanted kingdom!" Florence Stanley made her sixth and final appearance as Bernice (played by Doris Belack in the character's third appearance, "Fish"), while Abe Vigoda made only two return appearances as Fish, in "Burial" and "Lady and the Bomb" (55 episodes of BARNEY MILLER, plus 35 more on FISH).
