Viewers are introduced to Tom, a rugged, witty, romantic former college football star turned detective and Cassy, a savvy, scrupulously honest perfectionist. They are reluctantly re-teamed by Captain Lipshitz (Charlie Brill) who, short staffed, must put them on a case involving the murder of a female Naval officer. Tom and Cassy must develop a unique way of dealing with their renewed "closeness." Tom continuously mourns the loss of the beloved car and dog he lost in the divorce and Cassy, while chiding him for it, retains a fondness for Tom's overly sentimental poetry. The husband and wife comedy team of Brill and Mitzi McCall return in their recurring roles of Harry Lipschitz, Tom and Cassy's hypochondriac boss, and his doting wife Fran.
