Did You Know?


On the plane, Monahan makes a joke that had he known he'd be taking a flight he'd have brought a toothbrush and pair of socks. Deliberate or not, this resembles a situation in the Odd Couple, a show that starred Klugman and often featured Garry Walberg, who here plays Lt. Monahan. Felix once was appalled that Oscar took an overnight plane flight without any luggage to which Oscar said he didn't need any luggage. Felix asked why he didn't even take a change of socks? Oscar takes a pair of socks out of his pocket. Felix asks what about a toothbrush? Oscar says it's inside the rolled up socks. Monahan's line was dubbed in on a voiceover, apparently it was thought of after the fact. See more »

A continuity problem
14 May 2013 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

why is Quincy excited when mummy brought to airport--in previous episode he was bored and couldn't have cared less two agents--same ones from the diamonds in corpse case/Las Vegas

This is an episode which you might enjoy--provided you haven't watched one of the earlier episodes in the series. Let me explain. In "Dear Mummy", Quincy, Asten and Sam are all excited to have a chance to examine a famous mummy. However, in a much earlier episode, Asten and Quincy are invited to examine another mummy--and Quincy couldn't have cared less. In fact, instead of participating, the Doctor spent the entire episode running about and doing ANYTHING but watch the work being done on the mummy!! Couldn't someone have said something?! Why didn't Jack Klugman say something? All I know is that I hate continuity errors like this.

If you've never seen the other episode, then this one should be a good bit better. It involves a lot of crazy international intrigue--murder, Nazis, stolen diamonds, etc.--a lot to keep the viewer interested. And, if you liked the two Customs agents from the 1979 episode "Hot Ice", then you'll be in for a treat. As for me, the continuity knocks off a point or two.

Now back to THIS mummy. When a famous mummy arrives, it coincides with the arrival of a man that is suspected of smuggling diamonds. However, they find no diamonds on him--and somehow he and the mummy are related. But how? And what BIG secret does this dead princess hide?
