Recap

Dan is (apparently) at his home playing billiards when gangster Frank Egan and his henchmen come in. Egan tells Briggs that he has Sandy Forrester, the daughter of Dan’s friend George. Egan tells Dan that he must free Augie Gorman, a key witness against him, or he’ll kill the girl...

Episode Quotes
Briggs: What do you want, Egan?
Frank Egan: Oh, you know me, Briggs? Good.
Briggs: I read the papers.
Frank Egan: Well, then you must read that Augie Gorman testifies to the grand jury tomorrow.
Briggs: Yes, I hope he ruins you.

Dan: We'll exchange Gorman for the girl my way. And one more little thing, Egan. If anything happens to that girl--anything--I'll finish you. Wherever you are, whatever you're doing. I'll find you and I'll kill you. And you know I can do it.

Gorman: You're not the type to shoot a man down in cold blood.
Briggs: Really? (prepares to shoot Gorman)
Gorman: I think you would.
Briggs: You know I would.



Episode References
This is the first of a relatively few "personal" missions for the team, where they take on a mission because one of the team members needs assistance. As such, Bob Johnson does not "appear" as the voice of the tape briefer.
