      • (Otis to Mr. Roarke)
        Otis: I hate to drop a weasel in chicken land Mr. Roarke, but we're all due back at work for the next shift.

      • Mr. Simpson: It's just so embarassing, Mr. Roarke, even my best friends don't want me around.
        Tattoo: You mean you steal from your friends.
        Mr. Simpson: I can't help it, naturally when I realize what I have done, I return the stuff, if it's valuable I give them cash too, double the amount of whatever I stole is worth. But my friends are getting a little tired of my habit, so am I.
        Mr. Roarke: Now tell me, Mr. Simpson, just what happens when this urge to steal overcomes you.
        Mr. Simpson: Well first of all, I only steal things that are shiny.
        Mr. Roarke: Shiny?
        Mr. Simpson: Yeah I see something shiny then I freeze up for a second and this boing sound goes round in my head.
        Tattoo: Boing sound?
        Mr. Simpson: Next thing I know I've stolen something again. I've tried everything Mr. Roarke, nothing works you gotta help me.
        Mr. Roarke: Well I can't guarantee that I can cure you Mr. Simpson, but I will do everything in my power to help you cure yourself.
        Mr. Simpson: That's all I'm asking.
        Mr. Roarke: Very well, in the meantime I will assign Tattoo to stay with you, shall we say keep him out of trouble. Oh a Mr. Simpson, my pen if you please.
        Mr. Simpson: I'm sorry, I couldn't help myself.
        Mr. Roarke: Thank you, have a nice day."

    • NOTES (1)

      • Sherman Hemsley and Roxie Roker were costars on the series The Jeffersons, which was still in production and very popular at the time time this episode first aired.  This may explain why Hemsley shaved his mustache for this role - an attempt to lessen the shock and confusion the viewing audience may have experienced seeing George Jefferson fall in love with Helen Willis.
