"The Radical" finds Wojo bringing in a shoplifter with a past: his real name is Jonathan Dodd (Corey Fischer), a wanted fugitive from the FBI for ten years, still railing against Vietnam and other radical causes of the decade. Being a former Marine, Wojo is none too pleased to learn that both Harris and Dietrich were part of that 'underground movement,' who had the freedom to protest but no understanding of what the soldiers had to endure. Dodd even gets into an argument with Inspector Luger, who suffers a mild cardiac fibrillation, punching out a hapless intern for giving him a shot in the you-know-where. Stuart Pankin (first of two) plays an obese thief constantly joking about his weight, like suggesting he take two chairs instead of one (Luger: "hi Curly...where'd you pick up El Blimpo?"). Yemana's absence is here said to be over at the DA's, while ambulance attendant Sam Ingraffia would play another in "The Tontine."
