    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (4)

      • Steve: (sings through the phone) Please do what these people say.

      • Chief Green: Now we're really gonna be under pressure. I want this case solved, and I want Stringbean returned safely.
        George: I couldn't agree with you more, Chief. And if it's any consolation, sir, Martha feels the same way.

      • Chief Green: Solutions just don't jump up and bite you on the bottom. You have to earn them.

      • Announcer: (during Lousa and Tyrone's mugshot) Both John Phillips Lousa and Floyd Tyrone were convicted of stealing a rock musician, and sentenced to an appropriate number of years away from society and the University of Michigan marching band.

    • NOTES (1)

      • In the final part of the mystery, George says, "There are three Area Codes in the greater Los Angeles area." Clearly, this was filmed, and first aired, before Los Angeles introduced Area Code 310 in late 1991.
