  • Episode Description
  • While Cliff, Jerri and Billy plan to throw Matlock a surprise party for his birthday, Matlock goes to the city to pick up barbecue. While there, his car breaks down, he's mugged, the phone eats his last quarter ... and by the time he is rescued by activist Stan Johnson and returned to his car, it's half-stripped and they've stolen his barbecue. Matlock is very impressed by the young man, and when he's accused of trying to kill the landlord of the apartment complex he lives in, Matlock steps in to defend him and to stand up to the landlord, who is a very respected man in the legal community.moreless

    • Although this was not the final episode of the series to air, it seems like it was intended to be the series finale, as the ending scenes of the episode have Matlock taking one last, lone look at a dark, empty courtroom before turning and walking away.

      I DEFINITELY agree! I feel this MUST have been meant to be the final episode & have always wondered why it wasn't promoted & shown as the Series Finale.
