Goofs

At 31m, Lois Stoner (Elizabeth Ashley) swings to her left after getting slapped on the left side of her face. She should have swung to her right. (Bonus: pausing the scene at the right moment reveals the handclap for this "slap") See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Frank Brady: Too bad. All this destruction could've been avoided if old man Geary hadn't been so stubborn.
Martin Stoner: I'll see him this afternoon, offer him the partnership arrangement again. Only this time, I'm going to, uh, change the terms, Frank. 70/30, our favor, instead of 60/40.

Lisa Casey As An Alcoholic Wife
16 July 2019 | by Desertman84See all my reviews

We get to see an interesting episode in "Encounter" wherein Lisa Casey is assigned to disguise herself as an undercover wife who happens to be an alcoholic to get vital information with regards to mob secrets from another organized crime group.She becomes Lois Stoner in this IMF operation.

Despite the issues in credibility particularly Lisa's masquerade considering that she and her husband becomes a mob hit,we get to see good performances from the cast that makes it both entertaining and watchable.
