An episode to be rehashed
23 March 2014 | by See all my reviews

"Hash" is deservedly one of the best remembered episodes, as Wojo brings in a box of brownies baked by his latest girlfriend (she gets turned on by police officers), which has interesting side effects on anyone who eats them. Not knowing they are laced with hashish, all except Barney partake of the goods, and soon enough, people begin acting funny (VERY funny). We have a Polish actor (Walter Janowitz, 5 episodes) dueling sabers with a Polish critic (George Perina), and Michael Tucci ("Grease"), in his first of four appearances, popping in long enough to make an impression, after 'the old guy' Fish belied his years and successfully caught up with his burglar (Fish: "whaddaya think you're playing with, kids?"). Ed Peck appears as Officer Frank Slater, an old friend of Fish from his long ago academy days, when Slater lost the dancing Bernice to our favorite 'tired old cop,' but still seems to have the hots for her (Slater returned once in "The Harris Incident"). Wojo has been ingesting brownies all day, but claims "I don't feel a thing." Fish is saddened by the knowledge: "first time in 20 years I felt really good, and it has to be illegal!" The overbearing Levitt naturally assumes he'll be required to cover things up, to Barney's consternation. Nick has been dunking brownies in his coffee, making them soft and "mooshy mooshy mooshy!" Harris is the first to recognize the symptoms, but insists he's "sharp as a tack!" When Nick starts singing and dancing, Capt. Miller realizes something's wrong (Yemana: "Barney, Barney, Barney, here's your mother from Killarney!"). Nick is escorted home by Harris after asking if anybody's seen his legs: "they're about that long, ten toes, one of 'em's busted!" Barney instructs Harris to "stay home until you feel better" (Harris: "okay Barn, I'll stay, but I ain't never gonna feel no better!").
