Did You Know?


Bailey's P.I. license now lists him as "Bailey Investigations," yet still gives his address as 77 Sunset Strip. Even viewers who didn't know that the Bradbury Building is in downtown L.A. could see that the structure itself as well as his office were obviously not the same place as the office in the first five seasons.

Stuart Bailey: [speaking into microphone of dictation machine] So bonus baby Joe Fiore is gonna get his chance to become a baseball great. I hope he makes it. If only for the kick his father gets out of it, and his grandmother, also know as Sweetie Pie. And the Malatestas are in the very capable hands of the police. That's all, Hannah. Except the next time you see me, remind me never to work on Sunday.

Renewed interest in paternity
27 April 2019 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Simon Oakland hires Stu Bailey in this episode to locate his marriage certificate to his late wife whom he abandoned years ago and who married Michael Constantine and they raised Oakland's boy. The kid grew up to be James Farentino a well regarded baseball prospect who signed for a team unnamed for a $100,000.00 bonus.

I'm not sure who has a legal claim to this money as Farentino looks of age. But Oakland is interested and some other group headed by Frank DeKova is interested in robbing him.

Thin plot, but good characters.
