Quotes

Sergeant Joe Friday: Mrs. Perriwinkle, you really should put your money in a savings account. You know that. You're taking a dangerous risk hiding it here.
Myrtle Perriwinkle: A bank? Never. Don't trust them, never will. Never! Anyway, money is not my god. The Lord is my god.
Sergeant Joe Friday: Yes ma'am, but a bank is still a good place to keep your money.

Not bad, but definitely a lesser episode...
29 November 2009 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

This isn't a bad episode at all, but it certainly isn't one of the more interesting or earth-shattering. It's worth watching, though, for the cute lady near the end of the show--she's a treat.

The show begins with a guy reporting that he was cheated out of $9000. The problem is, however, that the money wasn't even his in the first place--he found it. First, the detectives need to find the money and then they must find the rightful owner. It seems that when the guy living on skid row found the money, he was flashing it about and that is where someone got the idea of posing as a detective and "confiscating" the money. So, they track down the thief. But what about the money? Where did it originally come from and how could someone just lose it? As I said, this is a lesser episode. The crime isn't the most serious one and the show is very low on suspense. But, like almost all the episodes of "Dragnet", even the lesser ones are well worth seeing.
