Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Angels and Stadium Burglary

    The Angels are assigned to the case because of assaults that have been happening to the Duckies. It appears at first that the Panthers are the ones who are causing the assaults, however the burglars setup to make it look like Julia Smythe was behind all of the incidences.

    The Angels found out the burglars were planning to steal money out of the safe at the stadium.

    Definetly, the Angels showed team spirit, but what prevented me from rating this higher is I missed the mystery and the unknown right up to the end. I knew the outcome to soon that the excitement just was not there.moreless

    • Pokey: (In the Locker room with Bosley) You see I have dyslexia sometimes. Well, I used to keep taking the wrong turns home from school and getting lost. That's how my daddy and Dr. Higgins figured it how. I came out here to play football so maybe I could get it fixed.

    • Grinelda: (In the shower room) Well hello precious. Gonna wash some of that dirt off your nose?
      Kris: How would you like some skin off your nose?
      Grinelda: Cutie pie. (walking towards Kris) You're about a foot short and (Kelly walks in) forty pounds of doing me any damage.
      (Grinelda shoves Kris backwards and walks past Kelly)
      Kelly Hey! (Kelly grabs Grinelda's wrist) Think I can do you any damage?

    • Grinelda: (talking to Kris whom she knocked over again): Oh. Did precious fall down and go boom.

    • Grinelda: (talking to Kris whom she knocked over on the field): A little too rough for you, precious.

    • Charlie: Girls you'll need a cover. Kelly. Sabrina. Didn't you both play on the football team when you were at the Police Academy.

    • Kris(after getting tackled on the football field): I wonder if this is how O.J. got started.

      This is a reference to O.J. Simpson who, at the time, was a successful football player for the Buffalo Bills and the San Francisco 49ers.
