Beth has trouble and is nearly killed by a client with tax trouble.
Did You Know?
When Rockford goes to see Solly, the bail bondsman, the establishing shot (a plain black-lettered sign with yellow & gold stripes around) is fake - it's actually the right-most parking space of the building across the street from which served for most episodes as the police precinct where Becker was stationed. Even though it (the sign) is fake, the spot had, until just a few months prior to this episode being shot, actually been a real bail bond office, which can be seen in the episode, The Rockford Files: Chicken Little Is a Little Chicken
(1975) (when Angel hustled Jim out of the station), and The Rockford Files: Where's Houston?
(1976), when Beth & Rocky get Jim out (of jail, what else). See more
(at around 24 mins) As Rockford, at the wheel of his Pontiac Espirit, resorts to a bit of dangerous driving to evade the car with Beth's pursuers, in the shot as seen from the car's left front fender, which shows only Rockford and the car in pursuit, the camera has inadvertently been mounted at an angle putting Rockford a bit too close to the center of the shot, making enough of the front passenger seat visible enough to reveal that seat to be empty; Beth has disappeared for that entire shot.

This is Jim Rockford. At the tone leave your name and message, I'll get back to you.
Mr. Rockford, Miss Miller of the Bartlett Book Club. "Great Detectives of America" is not in stock, so we sent you "Cooking Made Easy". Hope you enjoy it.
