Revenge and Remorse (The Guilty Alibi)
AIRED:
Frank investigates a district judge's courtroom after it is booby-trapped with a powerful explosive. The main suspect is a recently paroled ex-convict with a history of similar bombings. Upon questioning the bomber's ex-wife, Frank and Ed find she's more interested in getting charity than the fact that her ex-husband may be up to his old tricks. Frank and Ed discover the bomber has a showgirl girlfriend on the side. She has the perfect alibi for her boyfriend, but Frank and Ed wonder if she's really just covering for him.moreless

    • TRIVIA (5)

    • QUOTES (11)

      • Lana: He hangs out there with some chorus girl. A floozy named Mimi De Jour.
        Ed: De Jour? Is she French?
        Lana: That's just her stage name. Her real name is Mimi Coffee.
        Ed: Coffee?
        Lana: No thank you.

      • Frank: That evening we caught Mimi De Jour's show at the Club Flamingo. We hoped the talk with her would be half as revealing as her act.

      • Mimi: Is this some kind of bust?
        Frank: Yes, ma'am, it's very impressive, but we need to ask you a few questions.

      • Mimi: He was with me. We went to the movies.
        Frank: Oh, yeah.
        Mimi: On the Waterfront.
        Ed: Come on, there are no movies on the waterfront.

      • Ted Olsen: So you see, Katie, fish have gills to extract oxygen from water. But, but air-breathing species have lungs, which are equipped only to accept oxygen in it's natural state. And that's why most mammals must live on land. (tries to down a cat)
        Katie: Wow, that's neat.
        Ted Olsen: Oh, hi, Frank. Would you like to keep him, Katie?
        Katie: Can I? Gee, thanks, Mr. Olsen.
        Ted Olsen: Why don't you run along now, Katie, and next week I'll show you why women can't play professional football.

      • (after a man is killed in a car explosion)
        Norberg: I can't believe anyone would do something so cruel.
        Frank: Senseless brutality, senseless waste.
        Ed: Cut down in the prime of life.
        Norberg: That car was a classic, a '68! You suppose the widow would take $1,500 for it?

      • Norberg: I've got the sandwiches, sir.
        Ed: All right, Eddie, you went to the movies. Now what did you see?
        Eddie: I told you, I don't remember.
        Norberg: Who had the egg salad?
        Ed: "I don't remember."
        Norberg: Somebody ordered it.
        Frank: You can't expect us to buy that.
        Norberg: But I already paid for it.
        Eddie: Why don't you give a guy a break?
        Norberg: Thanks a lot.
        Eddie: What's the charge, huh?
        Norberg: About $4.58.
        Ed: What are you trying to do, insult us?
        Norberg: Okay, $3.50. Coffee's on me.
        Eddie: I told you, I went to the movies. I fell asleep. I don't remember.
        Frank: You don't expect us to swallow that?
        Norberg: All right, I'll eat it. But I don't think it's fair that I should have to pay for it.

      • Ed: Let's say you did go to the movies.
        Eddie: Okay.
        Frank, Ed and Eddie: You did go to the movies.
        Frank: And let's say that you were nowhere near the Club Flamingo.
        Eddie: All right.
        Frank, Ed and Eddie: You were nowhere near the Club Flamingo.
        Frank: Then explain this. (shows him a Club Flamingo matchbook)
        Eddie: Well, you take this little cardboard stick out, with sulfur on the end, and you rub it on the edges and it makes fire.

      • Frank: When I got home I received a call from Mimi De Jour. She said she wanted to see me at the club right away. Since I had no idea where the Club Rightaway was, I suggested the Club Flamingo. She agreed.

      • Dr. Joyce Brothers: Johnny, I've been getting a lot of mail about the Cinderella Complex.
        Johnny: So? (she slips him money) Women's fear of success have left many of them confused about their wants and needs. Consequently, stress-related burnout has driven many women from feminist aggression to female passivity, dependent upon their partner for vicarious fulfillment.
        Dr. Joyce Brothers: Well, what do I tell them? (slips him more money)
        Johnny: Tell them to get in touch with their unconscious feelings and to share in the growth process with their partner.

      • Frank: Just in time, Eddie.
        Eddie: Piece of cake, Lieutenant.
        Frank: No thanks, I just ate.
