  • Episode Description
  • Joe stops at an all night launderette to buy cigarettes and interrupts a burglar working the coin changer. When he shouts "Freeze," the criminal comes up shooting. Joe returns fire, hitting the man, who flees with the help of his girlfriend. He's later found dead. When SID tries to find the bullet fired at Joe, they come up empty and Joe faces a shooting board with no proof the man ever fired at him. A great surprise ending.moreless

    Trivia (3)

    • The bullet fired by Arthur Ashton (killed by Sgt. Joe Friday) traveled along the bottom of the shelf behind Joe Friday. It lodged in the wall after lifting the shelf leaving what appeared to be a carpenter's mark. The shelf fell back into place hiding the bullet from the vision of those searching for it, until Lt. Pierce Brooks moved the shelf finding the bullet.

    • Joe Friday appears in the perpetrator ("perp") end section. In his case it reports "Sgt. Joe Friday. Returned to duty."
