    This is a great episode and it's about time that Frank and Joe join forces with Nancy Drew. I really enjoy the joint episodes with these three excellent characters, and this was a perfect way to begin. From the tense beginning to the exciting end, this episode is definitely a great episode to watch. The acting was for the most part very well done, and I was actually surprised at the end. I love twists and turns, and this episode kept me guessing as I was following the clues along with Frank, Joe, and Nancy. A great episode that is worth watching.moreless

    • Bess: Nancy, why don't we just come back in the morning.
      Nancy: Cause. Life might be hanging in the balance.

    • (about Allison Troy)
      Joe: Warm human being. Its that little personal touch, like a rattle snake.

    • Tim: Say, just who are you guys anyway?
      Joe: Just two frustrated performers who wanted to get into show business, remember?
      Tim: Yeah, I remember what you said. I wasn't born bleeding yesterday either.

    • Stavlin: You know what young people do when they move into a town for a rock festival? They destroy it.

    • (about Dracula's castle)

    • Nancy: One hand on those bags, you're gonna be lying on your back, checking out the ceiling.

      Frank: That's a cute trick.
      Nancy: Now then.

    • Nancy: What do you want? What are you doing in my room?
      Joe: We want our waiter back.

    • Joe: I have a feeling our paths are bound to cross again.
      Frank: Astrology?

    • Frank: You're having trouble with the natives?

    • Frank: Where's the food? Why didn't you order food Joey? If we miss the connection upstairs...
      Joe: I tried to order. She - she stole our waiter.

    • Frank: Was one of these people a fourty-five year old man with graying temples?
      Fritz: Together these two ladies would not add up to fourty-five.

    • Frank: What you don't understand is that I'm expecting another party to occupy the room.
      Fritz: Oh, I understand. It's the other party who doesn't seem to understand.

      Frank: Yeah.
      Tim: How much?
      Frank: $50 a night.
      Tim: Either you must be desperate to get into show business or he must be awful. (about Joe)
      Frank: Come on Joe. Sing a few bars.
      Tim: Yeah. Come on.
      Joe: Come on everybody, get down. That's rock 'n roll.
      Tim: Well, make it 60.
