This time Rockford is the innocent victim of a car accident when a couple of drunks drive into him while he's driving Rocky's truck. While in the hospital, the groggy P.I. sees a Dr. Yost (John Considine) removing the corneas from a donor--only the donor doesn't appear to be dead yet!
Of course, everyone shrugs it off on the fact Rockford was medicated and groggy. But Jim's not convinced, so he decides to investigate Dr. Yost. There's a good scene where Rockford visits the farm where Yost grew up and another where he tries to get info from a V.A. patient.
The humor is there and it is a good mystery, while Considine kind of phones in his part. They needed someone with more presence and a sense of underlying menace (like James Woods or Eric Braeden) to play Dr. Yost. Considine is just bland.
Jesse Wells returns as Yost's secretary. She was in two season one episodes, most notably playing Nancy Wade in "Roundabout". She's good playing the dumb girl who thinks she's smart (though what Rockford sees in her is beyond me!)
You'll notice at the beginning the Firebird is no where to be seen. First Rockford drives Rocky's truck, but then gets a big sedan from the rental company. The reason for this becomes apparent later in the show when they use Universal stock footage of a car going off the road, down a cliff and exploding. If you look closely, you'll notice while the car in the stock footage is a dark sedan, its a Continental with suicide doors, while the car Jim drives is a Ford with doors that open regularly.
