  • This episode was a trendsetter for the Rachel/Frank relationship.

    Goldie's Trip was the 11th episode of season 2. It was the first episode where someone who works at the Water Police was kidnapped.

    In this episode, it was Rachel Goldstein who was kidnapped. It began with Rachel and her partner Frank Holloway are at a restaurant. Their quiet evening was interrupted when Rachel receives a phone call from an old friend.

    Rachel ends up going undercover as a drug courier on board a boat, with another detective, Briggs. When the boat is intercepted by three men, detective Briggs and the skipper are killed and Rachel is taken.

    Frank, meanwhile, gets worried when they find the boat (The Daydreamer) drifting and the two men on board dead. Unable to find Rachel, Frank desperately tries to call her mobile with no success. Although eventually, her mobile does ring and is answered (because it was on automatic answer). Frank realises that whoever has kidnapped Rachel has got her phone.

    Goldie's Trip ends happily (like most of them), with Rachel being found battered and bruised by Frank and another detective. It was an important episode in terms of Rachel and Frank's friendship and partnership because it really showed how much Frank cared about Rachel.moreless

    • Jeff: Forget it Frank. We got a description of the courier. Apparently he's young and good looking.
      Rachel: [to Frank] I think you're gorgeous!

    • Frank: If you can't come to a place like this and order an expensive bottle of wine, then what's the point in working?
      Waiter: I wonder if I can offer you a drink?
      Frank: Yeah, I'll have a beer.

    • [Rachel is in bed and Frank is by her side]
      Rachel: You know what I kept thinking while I was in the boot of that car? ... Why'd I have to take that stupid mobile phone to the restaurant.
      Frank: Actually, I kept thinking about the time you were away. You know, after Knocker. I tell ya, I hated sharing the office with someone else. That replacements of yours didn't want to drive. I didn't want to drive ... they refused to drive. It was a bit of a nightmare. Anyway, I'd better shove off.
      Rachel: Don't. If you don't want to. Stay with me.
