EDIT
Funny Money
AIRED:
When Hooker, Stacy and Corrigan aid in the stake-out of a money counterfeiting operation, Corrigan accidentally shoots dead an informant in the crossfire, while the head of the ring escapes. The shooting leaves a remorseful Corrigan questioning his choice of career, something that deepens even more when he is later forced to shoot a man involved with the counterfeiting ring who takes a hostage. The two fatal shootings leave the veteran officer seriously considering leaving the force and taking a job offered to him by the woman he may choose to spend the rest of his life with.
As the hunt for the counterfeiters continues, Hooker and Stacy try to convince him otherwise...moreless

    Hooker, Corrgian & Stacey get a tip from an informant that there is an operation of counterfeit money being made in a wherehouse. Two special agents(one is Kip Niven) drop by to help out. Hooker crashes his police care through the wherehouse and the shootout begins. One guy takes off in a car and Hooker chases him. Corrigan accidently shoots the informant as he is shooting one of the crooks with a shotgun. Hooker loses the guy he is chasing. The special agent informs Hooker the informant was killed by a shotgun. He is felling guilty as Hooker tries to help him out. One of the guys that was captured is offered a lighter sentence to turns states evidence. Hooker offers him a new cover and no murder charge. Corrigan is thinking about starting a new life with a girl he knows. Hooker interrupts a dinner with her and tells him he has been cleared of wrong doing in the shooting. Corrigan is still not sure about staying on. Hooker goes to see the dead informant's wife who is a stripper. She does not want to help him, but he tells her about his friendship with her dead husband. She gives him a name(Paulie) who might lead them to the head man, Simone. They find Paulie and he has a girl hostage. Corrigan shoots and kills him before he can kill the woman. He is still unsure and worries that he almost hit the hostage. Hooker finds some counterfeit money in Paulie's car with an address on it. Hooker and the special agent(Niven) go to that hotel to find Simone. He gets away but they get his girlfriend. She helps them to set up Simone for a lesser sentence. Stacey gets Corrigan to come back to go undercover with the girlfriend. They meet Simone at a hotel on the fourth level terrace. Hooker and crew converge on him and he takes off. He tries to get away in his car and Hooker stops him by shooting through his windshield. Corrigan decides to stay on the force. Corrigan's woman friend decides to go away for a week and then try things with Jim again. Another excellent episode really helped out by Kip Niven as the special agent who helps Hooker. It is nice to see one of my favorite actors guest starring and having a "good guy" role on a great show.moreless
