Gunn is hired by a woman to follow her "husband," but it turns out that this man is actually her partner in crime. Gunn's investigation leads to the local tax commissioner who is worried about the "lies" contained in a missing suitcase which will implicate him in scandal. This episode is a wacky mixture of suspense and comedy, including a scene where the woman ends up in Gunn's apartment dressed in his pajamas, just as Edie comes knocking at the door!Written by
The girls give Pete a pretty good working over in this 30-minutes. If it's not Edie giving him shin pains for hanging around a girl in pajamas, it's Lavinia giving him a flying tackle for just being around. Poor Pete, he shouldn't have let cutie Lavinia hire him for something or other. But don't worry about the murky plot, it's Barbara Stuart who lights up the show. Her Lavinia is like Debbie Reynold's wrestling sister. She's got this little girl grin every time she beats up on Pete. Worse, it seems to turn her on. If I were Pete, I'd refund her money and hightail it out of there. Speaking of character color, there's "Tony Mafia" as- surprise, surprise- a gun-toting thug. Trouble is to take a breath his mouth gapes open like a dying fish. I've never seen anything quite like it. Good also to see movie vet Joe Sawyer picking up a payday in a supporting role.
Anyway, it's solid Gunn, with some atmosphere, a shoot-out at Mother's, and, of course, the always reliable Edie.
