  • The Title and The Colonel

    5.0
    The Title of this episode is appropriate for two reasons.One it is the final dispute between any opponents literally,and symbolically.Two,this will be Colonel Lynch's last chance to catch The A-Team.Some A-Team impostors are terrorizing a Wild West Carnival run by Colonel Winneka,and his daughter.These men calling themselves the a-team.They are really a trio of criminals who work for a record promoter who is trying to run Colonel Winneka out of business.When the real A-Team learn of the impostors,they seek to set matters right.First,they have to avoid getting caught by Colonel Lynch,whom they suspect will be waiting to catch them.Can the real A-Team expose the impostors,avoid capture,and restore their good name which had been milined in the Newspapers?moreless

  • TRIVIA (2)

  • QUOTES (6)

    • (Murdock tries to find a disguise for B.A.)
      Murdock: (holding out a cowboy hat) How about this hat? You could play like you're a cowboy, and then it'd be just you and me, Cowboys and Indians!
      B.A.: I'm gonna play stagecoach, fool, and run you over if you don't shut up!

    • Face: Hannibal, this is the third time this month I've got hit in the eye. I'm beginning to lose my sense of humor.
      Hannibal: Face, a little ice'll do wonders. And it looks good, gives it a little needed character.

    • Mason: Whatever Winnetka's paying ya, I'll match it, I'll double it.
      Hannibal: I like mathematical progression, but we're a little picky about who we work for.
      B.A.: Yeah, real picky!

    • B.A.: I don't wear disguises, Hannibal.
      Murdock: Not even a feather for your hair?
      B.A.: Get this crazy fool away from me. You ain't no real Indian! Real Indians don't look and act like a crazy fool.

    • Murdock: I don't wanna be a secret weapon! I want to be an exposed weapon!

    • Hannibal: It's not nice to impersonate the A-Team, that's us.

  • NOTES (1)

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • In Murdock's flooded room at the V.A., there is a life preserver ring labeled "Titanic"; floating inside are three rubber duckies.

      The 1912 ocean liner Titanic struck an iceberg just before midnight on April 14 and had sunk completely by 2:20 a.m. on April 15. There were life preserver rings on the Titanic; however, they were white with no lettering, unlike the one in Murdock's room.

    • Murdock: You fools! You didn't bring your Murdock. What's the matter, phony Face? Couldn't break him out? (He presses half a fruit into the face of "phony Face.")

      Murdock's gesture of shoving the fruit into the face of "phony Face" echoes a famous scene from the 1931 film Public Enemy, in which James Cagney pushes half a grapefruit into Mae Clarke's face.
