    Hooker and Ramano have lunch at the beach and Ramano wants to become a surfer. They get a call of a robbery at a box office. The robbers take off and shoot a girl at the window who called it in. Another woman witnesses the crime and the miss shooting her as they drive away. Hooker and Romano chase them, but they get away. Back at the scene Hooker talks to the witness who is named Anne Perry. He pushes her when she says she did not see anything. She tells him she is blind and walks off. Hooker stills thinks she knows something. Hooker goes to see her the next day. She resists to help him out. She is afraid they will come after her. There is another robbery by the men at the Roller Dome. They killed another person and there are no witnesses. Hooker again talks to Anne. She tells him there was one white and one black man. The white one was from the southwest and the black one was from the south. She leaves for an appointment. The crooks are outside and the decide to wait and kill her later on. They break in and she hides in the dark. They find out she is blind. Hooker arrives and has a shootout with them. They run off and Hooker takes Anne to the police station. She heard the white guys name, Bobby-jo. They get a photo from another police staation. They go to the bar where he works and the bartender sends them to the beach where the other guy works. They find evidence of the robberies in his office. They find out they are hitting the Beach Boys concert. They race over to get them. They chase them into a storage room and arrest them. Then they attend the concert where Stacey & her dad are attending. Another fine episode with Shatner's real life wife as the blind woman Anne. She made a few guest appearances and this was her best.moreless

  • NOTES (5)

    • This episode bills The Beach Boys, but all of their concert performances are stock footage. Only Carl Wilson actually filmed a cameo specifically for this episode, with a couple of lines to Hooker for the final act, which are inserted into the Beach Boys' performance.

    • The closing credits contain the acknowledgement "The Producers wish the express their gratitude to the Braille Institute of America for their invaluable help and guidance in the production of this episode".

    • Guest Marcy Lafferty, at the time of this episode's airing, was William Shatner's real-life wife.

    • The actress who plays the cinema cashier that gets wounded is uncredited.

    • Numerous other series have their own equivalent of this story. For example, Knight Rider's second season episode "Blind Spot" concerns a blind woman who, with her guide dog, are the only witnesses to a shooting.
