Episode Recap

In the midst of an already rocky marriage, Tina Brazil, after hearing her mobster husband Ricky Brazil planning a murder, runs away and heads to her old friends Cody and Nick for help. Cody and Nick aren't around when she arrives, but Murray greets her and assures her they'll help; unfortunately, at the same time, Cody and Nick have been accosted by Ricky's henchmen, and "given" the job of finding his missing wife.

With Ricky Brazil not being the sort of man you can say no to, the PIs have even more trouble when the target of the planned murder turns out to be none other than Lt. Quinlan. Quinlan doesn't listen to the PIs at the best of times, and after Cody gets into a brawl with him when trying to convince him of the murder plot, the Private Detectives find themselves the prime suspects when Quinlan is kidnapped, and end up wanted by both the Police and Ricky's men...
