Did You Know?


It is strange that Chief Taylor doesn't even blink an eye when it is revealed that The police impersonator, "Dick Tracy", is the person responsible for the official police report from the previous case he was involved in... especially when official police reports are supposed to be written by policeman which "Dick Tracy" clearly was not except to trick him into revealibg evidence he was holding.

Rusty Beck: Hey, if my mom drinks, or uses again, do they kick her out of AA?
Andy Flynn: If they kicked everybody out who fell off the wagon, trust me, those meetings would get really small. Look, kid, seeing how your mom is coming up on two months and hearing how she wants to stay in recovery, I think she said a lot of the right things.
Louie Provenza: My philosophy in life: Stay positive.
Rusty Beck: Okay, then, thinking positive, I... I should get a job.
Andy Flynn: How does that relate?

I have been watching "The Closer" and "Major Crimes" since the beginning and I thought this was one of the very funniest episodes they've done. (The show usually does one lighter, flight of fancy episode a season and this seems to have been that one.)

What made this particular show especially good - in my opinion - was the return of a character who appeared on "The Closer" named Dick Tracy - a police impersonator - although in this episode he's gone back to using his real name of Jonathan Baird.

Jonathan Baird - or "Captain Jonathan Baird" - calls Lt. Provenza and alerts him to a "13 year-old male" dead on the premises of this massive estate - and that's (surprisingly) where the fun begins. The 13 year-old turns out to be a Maltese - "Falcon" - which had been owned by a Leona Helmsley like character...and I don't want to spoil any more. It's that good and you should see it for yourself.
