  • Gordon tricks Mick and Joey into investigating an attack on his "God daughter" who is a famous model. Joey gets a modeling gig, and Mick poses as a photographer.

    A top fashion model for the "Sea Splash" company is attacked and injured. Gordon calls Joey asking them to go check on her (his Goddaughter). Mick tries to get Joey to say no, but he agrees. When they get there, they find out about the attack and how there are no suspects and the husband of the owner expects them to investigate. Mick figures since they are there, they might as well. He goes undercover as a person from a camera club and Joey is a waiter, who later turns model. When the photographer is fired, then killed, Mick takes his place, kind of funny to see Rick on the other side of the camera for a change. Mick finds out that Gordon is not the Godfather (big surprise), but in fact a major stockholder in the company. We find out that Mick gets his photography knowledge from his forensic training in the police force. Joey almost gets blown up when he goes to turn off the alarm of the owners car. They think the owner's husband was the target. Mick hauls some ass to save his life. Come to find out, the car bomb was indeed meant for Joey. The Sea Splash designer was having an affair with the owner's husband and that when she didn't gain control of the company, she decided to destroy it by going after the models. She killed the photographer because he had a side job as an investigator and he had gotten pictures of them together. Another case solved.

    A couple of strange things, in one scene Fritz tasted some of the sauce Gordon was cooking, then stuck the spoon back in the pan (major health dept. violation). Another scene, Joey had a beeper, it went off, he showed Mick how cool it was, said "you can't take your phone everywhere", Mick asked where the phone was, it was in his jacket 5 feet away.

    The opening volleyball scene was nice, and the closing scene where Mick dragged Joey into the water was really cute.

    Some of the funnier lines:

    Joey: I'm "it"

    Mick: Yea, you're full of it

    Mick calls the photographer a "first class turd"

    Joey: she says they are one big happy family

    Mick: must be quoting Charles Manson

    Then when Mick finds out about Gordon's stockholder ownership, they tell him "you look surprised". He says "I'm too stupid to be surprised"

    Mick: Do you ever simply tell the truth

    Gordon: never simply

    Designer: You are going to be the biggest thing in Lycra the world has ever seen

    Joey: You keep squeezing my leg like that, you never know.

    Designer: She's really a doll

    Mick - Barbie she's not (aka Rick Springfield's wife's name is Barbie)moreless
