Episode Quotes
The head of a buffoonish detective agency laments on his fumbling underlings and television’s influence on his profession.

Baer: Too much television – that’s what’s done it. You men are seeing too many flamboyant examples of private detection . . . all this hard-guy stuff, this violence you see on TV about private eyes – pure fiction, a rank canard. Brains, charm – that’s the ticket.”
