The Detective pals investigate, only for it to turn out that the father of Hutch's girl-friend is one of the people owing money to the crooked racket, and that the vicious new collector is actually a notorious killer with an ulterior motive...moreless

    • TRIVIA (2)

      • When Starsky and Hutch are outside Annie's yard near the climax of the story, it's evident that the two alternating angled shots of them are edited together from two separately filmed takes – on all of the shots looking from Hutch at Starsky, there is a background whistling noise that noticeably disappears each time the shot cuts back to Hutch.

      • (Disputable) blooper: Starsky and Hutch leave Headquarters to go to Annie's, but when they arrive at Annie's, they are wearing in completely different clothes! Of course, it's possible that they might have got changed at the Station, but as they were in a hurry as to catch Cunningham / Gallagher, it's very unlikely that they would've done so.

    • NOTES (2)

      • In an early cameo role, a bearded Danny DeVito plays newspaper seller-come-book-runner "John John the Apple" in two scenes of this story. DeVito, of course, would go on to star co-star as Louie DePalma in popular sit-com 'Taxi' (1978-1983), before embarking on a very successful big-screen career.

      • In this episode, we see that Huggy Bear has recently taken ownership of 'The Pits', the bar previously seen in a couple of earlier episodes (the second season's 'Survival' and 'Huggy Bear and the Turkey'). Huggy continues to run The Pits until the end of the series; Owning a bar takes him almost full-circle, after he was seen owning 'Huggy Bear's' bar in the early first season episodes.
