  • The most interesting piece of this episode is that Henry Goldblume looks much prettier as a woman.

    6.5
    This dud from Season Two was a waste of 48 minutes. The only part of it I truly enjoyed was seeing Captain Freedom - the caped, half-sane vigilante - get blasted at the end, signifying that he would mercifully not appear in any more episodes (he had already overstayed his Season Two welcome by three). Of course, instead of just killing him off in the relentless crossfire, they gave him a slow-death ending, muttering his ideals with Mick Belker tearfully holding onto his green glove as he crouched by his side - really, really corny and super-lame.



    Other than that, it was the usual fare: Fay annoyed the audience yet again with her pathetic presence, the "good ole boy" establishment showed itself to be two-dimensionally contemptible and corrupt thanks to the bias of the show's producers and writers, and Davenport and Furillo hooked up yet again, while she questioned his morality in the afterglow.moreless

    • Phil: Due to a shortage of female decoys, the less hefty and bearded of you will find in your lockers a varied selection of wigs, dresses, and appropriate foundation.

    • Furillo: Last time you went out undercover, you ended up getting booted out of your house and sleeping on my couch for three nights.
      Ray: Size fourteen, Henry. (gives him a pink woman's overcoat and red blouse to wear)
      Henry: ( takes it from him) Don't worry, Frank. I think my marriage is safe in this.

    • Chief Daniels: (about his bowel movement) I gotta tell ya, I feel great! For the first time in three weeks, this morning I had a normal sit-down. I can't tell you what a joy it was. Went in there with the sports section and it was unbelievable.

    • Captain Freedom: (as Fay walks by) It's you! 4000 BC, the Princess Zuma, daughter of Theluminkis, whose likeness graces the wall of the Great Temple at Amar.
      Fay: Excuse me?
      Captain Freedom: (holds her hand) The lips, the eyes, the regal slope of the nose. The sheer overwhelming majesty of your beauty. They taunted you. A woman of uncommon intelligence, a free spirit. They did not understand your sensitivity or the firey compassion that raged within you. You vowed you would return and now you're back, oh Princess of the Night.
      Fay: Umm, could you let go of my hand? I think you have the wrong person.
      Captain Freedom: (looking closer) You're right. The lights are bad in here. My mistake.
