Episode Summary

Dewey, an old "acquaintance" of Huggy Bear's, robs a candy store for a few bucks, only to realise he's scored thousands of dollars and the store is a Mob gambling front. Dewey, having once saved Huggy's life, calls in the debt and asks Huggy to use his underworld contacts to return the money to the Mob so they can forgive him for the robbery. But the hapless Dewey's girlfriend and her new lover learn about the stolen horde, and decide to bump him off and mug Huggy for the money before he can return it. So Huggy's left owing the large haul of money to the Mob, and Starsky and Hutch must untangle the web and save their friend, who's now marked as a dead man.moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (3)

      • This is the first episode where we see Hutch driving Starsky's Ford Gran Torino. Also, Starsky comments that the car is painted "candy apple red".

      • When the red Gran Torino is running without brakes, we see that Hutch attaches the Mars "bubblegum" siren light to the roof of the car. In some takes we see the car dodging other cars on the street with this siren light on. But when we see closer takes (front take of Starsky and Hutch inside the car, trying to save their lives) we do not see any sign of the Mars light on the roof of the Gran Torino.

      • Huggy says that his bar closes at 2 a.m., yet the sign outside reads 'Open All Night'. [Editor note: Many municipalities in the US have laws that state alcohol can't be served after 2 a.m. local time, though the establishment can stay open as long as it wants.]
