  • Rona Barrett attempts to find out what's behind the malaise at Blue Moon. Show ends with a blooper reel.

    7.5
    Entertainment reporter Rona Barrett stops in to see what's been disturbing the peace at the agency. Each detective gets to present their side of the story. Neither seems to have anything good to say about the other--so Rona does all she can to salvage the atmosphere.



    There follows a parade of clips from the preceding episodes. We see the gumshoes scream, yell, slam doors, risk life and limb to solve cases, and battle their increasing attraction for each other.



    The episode concludes with a few minutes of very funny blunders. Enjoy watching them mess up some of your favorite scenes.



    This might be a stopgap show, but it's worth it.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • During the flashback clip of the scene in Brother, Can You Spare a Blonde? where Maddie dances with David's brother Richard, the song (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman by Aretha Franklin is heard.

      However, in the original episode Brother itself, the song used at that moment was If Only You Knew by Patti Labelle.

      The reason for the difference is not known.

    • Pierce Brosnan appears as his character from the NBC series Remington Steele in this episode.

  • QUOTES (3)

  • NOTES (5)

    • A group of all-time fans of Moonlighting provides DVD commentary for this episode.

    • Bloopers from many episodes are seen throughout the closing credits.

    • This episode contains clips from nearly every episode from the first two and a half seasons.

    • Music: "Natural Woman" by Aretha Franklin (seen in a clip from Brother, Can You Spare a Blonde? even though it wasn't used in the original airing); Bruce Willis sings "Popeye the Sailor Man" during an outtake from The Dream Sequence Always Rings Twice.

    • Actor/Director Peter Bogdanovich refers to his real-life romance with Cybill Shepherd, as he says that he had a rebound fling with Maddie in the 1970s shortly after the end of a long-term relationship with a "Memphis model who went on to become an actress" and worked in several of his films.
