  • QUOTES (4)

    • Hooker: You know, I thought I knew everything about you. Now I find that you were once a shady lady gambler.

    • Manny: You gotta be kidding. You know I don't talk to cops—it's bad for my image. (strains while bench pressing) So why don't you two take your little tin badges and buzz outta here?
      Hooker: (forces the bar down on the weight lifter) Gettin' heavy?
      Manny: (straining heavily) Hey, what are you doin'?
      Hooker: (applies pressure) Gettin' heavy, Manny?

    • (Hooker has been asked to guess a baby's future birth date)
      Hooker: I want to see Madge Lewis first. I mean, after all, when they ask you how many jelly beans are in a jar, they let you see the jar.
      Romano: There's only one bean in Madge Lewis' jar!

    • Hooker: This Pete Conners is involved in something I... I can't even figure.

  • NOTES (2)

    • This is the first of Jim Brown's two, unrelated appearances on T.J. Hooker. He can also be seen in season four's "Anatomy of a Killing."

    • When shown in the United Kingdom, this was not only the most watched episode of 1984, but the most watched episode of the entire series, clocking up 14.0 million viewers on it's original broadcast on Saturday 24th March (ITV; 8:00 p.m.)
      (For anyone trying to tally that date up for the previous year's most watched episode, "King Of The Hill," to note is that the UK broadcasts did not follow the U.S. season breaks, not to mention that the episode running order was occasionally shuffled).
