  • The police and FBI battle it out in the hunt for a Ray Luca operative; meanwhile, Lt. Torello's private life falls apart.

    Torello and his wife try to have a relaxing weekend off and get closer together. It backfires in a big way, when the unsatisfactory hotel conditions add to their volatile mood. Unable to recover, Mike heads out to Toledo, Ohio to join a police team that is working with the FBI.

    Such efforts often go haywire, and this one is no exception. The two squads don't enjoy sharing the same turf. Tension is bulding to the breaking point.

    At least one couple seems to be happy--David Abrams and Suzanne Terry. Not everyone shares the joy. Another cop reminds them that society is still little used to interracial relationships. Suzanne, however, maintains she is not about to cave under pressure.

    Ray Luca moves to establish a new scheme, and must put the heat on a union boss to do it.

    This is an emotionally wrenching and powerful episode. Very strong acting, and utterly believable, as always.moreless

    • Steadman: Who are you? Who do you work for?

      Luca: Let's look at it this way, Mr. Steadman. There's an angel perched on your shoulder. We're looking after you, that's all.

      Steadman: Look, I was part of building this union. I stood on picket lines, I froze, I fought scabs--and dozens of punks like you. This union works for its membership. You got something to take up with it? You pay your dues, you do the job. And it's not for sale to no lowlifes. And I don't need anybody looking after me. Now you get out of here before you are carried out.

    • Torello (to hotel clerk): Now, listen. My wife and I are here to have a nice vacation. Either you accommodate us, or I'm going to knock you into the middle of next Wednesday.
