Ron Feinberg and Richard Stahl
21 January 2014 | by kevinolzakSee all my reviews

Third episode, "Snow Job" is the best yet. The precinct is colder than the winter outside, with Yemana answering the phone "Nanook speaking," while Barney needs a cup of coffee to sit in. Fish comments on a wife beater found in a bar on 3rd Ave. (Fish: "he looked worse than she did!" Barney: "she'll never press charges!" Fish: "she won't, but HE will!"). Wojo takes responsibility for over $200,000 from Siegel's department store, which astonishes a petty crook (Jeffrey Kramer) attempting a failed stickup behind bars. Ron Feinberg plays flasher Lyle W. Farber, caught in 10-degree weather, who is advised by Barney to call his lawyer: "I AM a lawyer!" Complications ensue when Farber goes to the men's room and tries to commit suicide by sticking his finger in the light socket and his foot in the toilet bowl (Fish: "I didn't know he was that tall!"). A call to the morgue is put on hold, as Barney successfully performs CPR to keep the victim alive. The first Bellevue attendant (Reid Cruickshanks, repeating the role in "Escape Artist") congratulates Capt. Miller on a job well done: "I think you saved his life, and I know you broke his ribs!" (Farber made one return appearance in a third season episode, "Noninvolvement"). Making his series debut is Paul Lichtman (first of five), best remembered in the role of custodian Beckman, here playing Charlie, the Bellevue attendant holding the oxygen, amazed to see Wojo's money lying around (Charlie: "what's all that money on the desk?" Fish: "payday!" Charlie: "I didn't know cops made that kind of money!" Fish: "we're very good cops!"). Richard Stahl (first of three) plays Siegel's accountant Gross, whose job is to retrieve the $200,000, if he can recover the missing $5000!
