Storyline

After a jet liner crashes just outside of Los Angeles, Quincy is called in to help identify the victims as well as to help find out the cause of the crash. However, he is soon trying to solve two other mysteries as well. One involves trying to positively identify a man who was traveling under an assumed name with a woman he was having an affair with. The other involves three chemical engineers who all suffered from lung cancer, which might have been caused by a project they were working on. Written by Brian Washington <Sargebri@att.net>

Solid if unspectacular

A lot of avenues for Quincy to walk which makes the episode a little disjointed. As mentioned above, Quince is knee deep in some heavy science which limits some of the action but is technically strong. The plane crash was quite a set to build if indeed that is what it was. Some classic formulaic material including big business turning a blind eye to the dangers of its new miracle insulation. Episode is capped by a signature line delivered deadpan to Quincy: "It was a million to one shot, but you hit it right on the nose." Perfect. You also get a heavy dose of Sam and some of the gentle ribbing that made their relationship so comfortable. At one point Quincy goes so far to put his arms across Sam's back in a brotherly, almost affectionate way. At certain points Sam surprisingly Points out facts to Quincy which is rare indeed. Any episode lacking the Lieutenant (until a brief appearance at the end) is, of course, an automatic one point deduction in my book. Without his skepticism and frustration Quincy lacks the fire that he can especially bring to those he knows well. At least Astin manages to wring a few bucks out of Quincy by cutting his overtime which we all know is quintessential Astin.
