Quotes

[first lines]
Constable George Crabtree: And you say there's nothing wrong with it at all?
Mrs. Haan: Uh, how should I know? I've never driven the thing.
Constable Henry Higgins: It's a fine automobile, George. And the price...
[chuckles]
Constable George Crabtree: What do you think, Jackson?
Constable Slugger Jackson: You know what I think; I already gave you my share, George.
Constable Henry Higgins: We could own a motorcar, George, and for only fifty dollars.
Constable George Crabtree: The price does actually seem rather low, Ma'am.
Mrs. Haan: Well, you can pay more if you like; makes no difference to me.

Wimpy Murdoch rides again
13 May 2015 | by ctyankee1See all my reviews

This episode is worse than the previous one Murdoch got married in. He is in a hotel in the US and has a reserved room for his new wife. He introduces himself as Murdoch and Julia introduces herself as Mrs Murdoch. He is surprised and happy (what a jerk) that she would use his name. He smiles and she says she used it "as a convenience"-->another slap in the face by Julia. Julia Odgen Murdoch cuts Murdoch off when he talks and gives her own description of things. How dumb can William Murdoch be.

There is some kind of crime planned in the hotel and Murdoch and his wife instead of being romantic are figuring out what is going on about them and he removes water pipes to spy on the apartment above by holding them out their room window. Later they find out President Roosevelt has a room at the hotel.

Back in Toronto Crabtree and 2 other cops buy a red motor car you have to crank up. Later they find out a man found dead in the street was run over by two different motor cars. The dead man has 2 sets of car tires on his body. The red car they bought was his from his wife.

Probably the funniest and dumbest part of this episode is when Crabtree is taken prisoner by a man that is a killer and has Crabtree driving the motor car that goes really slow and if some one was chasing it could out-run it. Dr Grace sees Crabtree in trouble, gets in a motor car with Brackenreid and drives it to chase the other car which is laughable because both cars are slow.

I am a female and have come to dislike the women that have regular roles in this series. The writer makes them smart but they are rude, bossy and arrogant. While the head man is Murdoch who is like a jelly fish the only thing he got going for him is his looks and his facial expressions and gestures.

Brackenreid and Crabtree are humorous and men with guts.
