Episode Summary

EDIT
Imposter
AIRED:

Clark Palmer, a renegade government agent, breaks into Harm's apartment and incapacitates him. Palmer then makes a cast of Harm's face in order to prepare a mask that he can wear to pass for Harm. Palmer plans to murder the key witness in the trial at which Harm and Mac are currently prosecutors. When Harm doesn't show up for the start of the trial, Mac takes his place, leaving Bud to search for the missing JAG lawyer. When Bud finds Harm trapped in an ingeniously booby-trapped apartment, the two must find a way to escape before the assassin can carry out his plan.

    This was one of the coolest episodes ever! It was so weird and creepy, yet funny and exciting! I loved the part where Bud had to dive to unplug the motion detector on the bomb, that was funny! I really enjoyed this episode! The whole molding of the face thing was cool and creepy! And Harriet and Bud were so funny! And the ending was hilarious with Mac pulling on Harms face! lol! I love the line," One Harm in my life is enough!" and then Admiral says, "More than enough!" lol! Classic line! aNd once again lovely episode! Very enjoyable!moreless

    I wonder how the imposter got into Harm’s apt to learn so much about him. I didn’t know you could make your own personal make in your kitchen, pretty cool. Bud went above and beyond the call of duty to locate Harm. Who do you know that would go to the roof and climb down to enter through a window? I thought Clark pulled off being Rabb fairly well considering he knew which article he was going to do for the next case. Clark had Rabb under surveillance for a long time. All in all, I thought this was written and performed very well.moreless

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Palmer: (objecting to the term "wet-boy") It's a vulgar term, coined by some government geek with an overactive imagination and a love of juvenile catch phrases. I prefer to think of myself as a forensic artist. I mean, any psycho can walk up to some poor soul, put a gun to the base of his skull and blow his brains out his forehead. But it takes true artistry to have that same guy choke on a hot dog at a baseball game in front of 15,000 people, or suffer a stroke on the dance floor at his daughter's wedding.

    • Mac: Wish us luck, sir.
      Chegwidden: Break somebody's legs.

    • Harm: So what kind of man becomes an assassin?
      Clark Palmer: I don't know. What kind of man becomes a lawyer, Rabb?
      Harm: The kind that believes in justice.
      Clark Palmer: I believe in justice. I think we just have a very different approach.

    • Harm: If I don't show up, they're gonna send someone here looking for me.
      Clark Palmer: Who says you won't show up? You just won't be yourself when you do.

    • Clark Palmer: So tell me, how goes the search for Papa Rabb? You know, I hear he's living very well outside of Kiev, or is it Smolensk? Anyway. It' s a shame he never calls.

    • Harm: How long have you had me under surveillance?
      Clark Palmer: Long enough.
      Harm: Long enough for what?
      Clark Palmer: Long enough to know you have two overdue library books, some serious issues with your missing father, and your love life sucks.
