    Unfortunately not really played for laughs as much as it could've been. Roscoe Lee is perfect for such a (more than slightly campy) role. Lord knows Brenda Sykes is gorgeous, but acting may not be her forte. When the solution to the whole business finally comes, it all seems tacked on, as though some guy in the Streets of San Francisco receiving department is saying: "Okay, we just got it in...yeah, we'll ship it out to you right away!" Anyway, the title does allow Stoney the opportunity for some of his trademark good-natured razzin' of Keller. Oh yeah, and Mel was on hand for a bit of fun.moreless

    • Jenaea Dancy: You know something, Steven Keller? For a human being, you're a really nice guy.

    • Yale Courtland Dancy's poem: We all met at the summit
      And agreed we'd arrived.
      They asked who I was.
      ...
      I said I'm a negative thinker,
      Of that I am positive!
      A killer who couldn't,
      A killer who wouldn't!
      A man who deserves your attention.

    • Jenaea Dancy: You hackneyed old ham! You phony! I cried my eyes out thinking you were going to be spending the rest of your life behind bars, and now I find out you're only going to be leaning on them.
      Yale Courtland Dancy: Now hold on, a little respect! After all, I'm a published poet, a man of letters.
      Jenaea Dancy: Now who's selling who short?

    • Inspector Keller: (Examining a painting in Dancy's home) This Van Gogh's upside down.
      Yale Courtland Dancy: (Deadpan) I spend a great deal of time on my head.
