Episode Summary

EDIT
Who Killed Molly?
AIRED:
A rose-covered cottage is the scene for the death of a seemingly ordinary housewife. Burke and Tim (who is contemplating settling down with his current girlfriend) soon discover that all is not what it seems in suburbia. The dead woman's husband, her totally gaga neighbor, a stripper with a boa constrictor, a flustered physician, several predatory landladies, a tennis bum, a couple of wigs, and the surly head of the Burglary Division all help to turn what at first seemed like just a slip in the bathtub into one of Burke's more complicated cases.moreless

      • Hoagy Carmichael: "Captain Kirk?"
        On Mr. Baker's second meeting with Amos, he mistakenly calls him "Captain Kirk." OK, so this in itself is not a big deal; however, in this same episode there is a character named Mrs. Tribble! I should also point out that this Mrs. Tribble, as essayed by Nanette Fabray, has to be one of the SPACE-iest characters in the entire series--and that's saying a lot!

        Did Gene Roddenberry watch this episode? [RW]


        It predates "The Trouble with Tribbles" by about 3½ years. [DH]

      • :
        Molly's murder scene is very reminiscent of the opening of the shower scene in "Psycho".
        Baker's constant comments about "just Molly and me" is a reference to the lyrics in the old song "My Blue Heaven".
