Episode 81
AIRED:

In Part 1, Jodie and Maggie meet an informant at a spa who reveals that Carol has taken Wendy to a Kung-Fu fortress in Malibu. Burt single handedly storms the Mob's compound and arrests everyone, including Tibbs. Mary informs Chester that he is Danny's father and is the only person who can donate a kidney to Danny. Jessica catches El Puerco in the basement with a prostitute. Scottie's odd behavior renews Mary's fears that he really is an alien.

Danny learns that he needs a kidney transplant and that Chester is his father. Burt is declared a hero and appears on live television with the governor. Chester and Danny are prepped for surgery.

    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (4)

      • Danny: Chester is my father? The man I respect least in the world has my chromotons.

      • Godfather: I know I speak for all of us when I extend my sympathy for the passing of Vito Hirsch, whose heart unfortunately gave out moments after his throat was cut.

      • (Jessica finds El Puerco with a prostitute)
        El Puerco: Jessica, marry me, and I'll stop all this disgusting stuff I do with other women and do it only with you.

      • (Dutch wants to have sex, but Eunice doesn't)
        Dutch: Eunice, it's been two weeks, and I got all these little genes running around inside my body. You had them thinking they were leaving tonight. You can't just cancel their trip.
        Eunice: Maybe tomorrow, sweetie.
        Dutch: They're already packed!

    • NOTES (2)

      • After yanking Soap from its schedule during the all-important February sweeps period (a sure sign a show is in trouble), ABC decided to burn off the remaining ten "Soap" episodes as quickly as possible by combining them into five hour-long episodes (#81-#85). In syndication, the episodes are re-edited into half-hour shows. Strangely, many scenes within these episodes are re-ordered, and some are cut totally, not just trimmed as all episodes are for syndication. Not much is lost really, but the changes are noticeable, especially when episodes end with entirely different cliffhangers.

      • This episode was one hour long.
