A fun episode with a good feel to it. When our couple are walking home from the ice cream parlor you actually get the feel of a warm spring evening in Washington. Fred Gwynne was superb as always. The guy playing the undertaker was superb, sounding just like a stereotypical undertaker would. Kristoffer Tabori can also be seen in the season 1 finale of Seaquest DSV playing Lucas' father.

Though it was entertaining, this was a pretty ridiculous episode. All the characters were borderline idiots. The scene with the squirrel was a classic though...worthy of Breaking Bad.

Mystery with a bit of comedy; good combination. Sit back and relax
