Episode Summary

EDIT
Downhill All the Way (2)
AIRED:

A small boy witnesses a crime, but proves to be an awkward witness due to a mental condition that doctors cannot explain. An attempt is made on his life while he is under the Chief's sole care, and in order to capture those responsible, the story is put out that the boy is dead, and that the Chief has retired through a sense of guilt. Putting it about that he has new evidence, he sits back to wait for somebody to make an attempt on his life, while spurning the efforts of his friends to help him. It looks as though his attempts to make it look as though he is turning to drunkenness and depression might just be costing him his life.

    I very much enjoy this excellent episode but, what I don't understand is why can I not understand what is going on or being said in the second half of this episode? All I get is the audio track from the first half of Downhill All The Way overlapped into the second half of this episode! I wonder however if it was a technical problem on their end or something?

    • Ironside: Well, I guess that you've heard that I retired from the department some months ago. I settled in down here and I got thinking I might make a little extra money, supplement my pension, you know, by selling my life story. I don't want much for it, I just thought that maybe, well, you know, maybe...
      Jim Rogers: Yeah, we might be able to do something with that. I have to figure out the right format, you know. How about a drink?
      Ironside: Oh, not right now, it's too early for me.
      Jim Rogers: (smiles and pours two glasses) So, uh, you have any ideas how to go about this?
      Ironside: Actually, I do have a couple of ideas. You see I'm thinking of making a comeback.
      Jim Rogers: Good angle.
      Ironside: I think so, too. Say, do you think--do you think you could give me a little advance? Not much, you understand.
      Jim Rogers: How would, uh, twenty strike you?
      Ironside: That's generous of you. Very generous.
      Jim Rogers: You were, uh, telling me about a comeback was that it?
      Ironside: That's right, right before I quit--ah, retired, there was this boy who was involved in an accident. Well, I've come up with a lead.

    • Wilson: (talking on the phone) The word is the old fox knows a lot more than he lets on. Yeah, he's half stoned all the time, too, so he never does any real work on it. I know what you mean, it could end up bad for both of us if he does know something and he knocks off the bottle. Yeah, I'll take care of it.
