Great ending! Didn't see that coming! Love Larry Haines!

Was interesting to hear what I assume was Evie Juster's real voice as the wife in this one, as well as her more typical voice as the secretary. Good story.

"Try to look surprised!" LOL.

I figured out the ending as soon as the car wouldn't brake. Nobody could be as stupid as that husband.

it is so funny to hear. Larry Haines talk to miss Alvarez.

Ed Hayes

I loved this one. Has to be one of the best ones. I think Miss Alvarez fixed the brakes.

I think Hi Brown played the store owner...a great episode.

Unintentional funny bit in the first act. Keeping with the theme of the the title laundry they have Evie Juster do Simon Wilson's secretary with a hilariously stereotypical Japanese accent speaking English aka Charlie Chan. Yet for some strange reason her name is Miss Alvarez. I suppose even in 1980 CBS could only hire white actors to play non white characters. They could not just have hired a real Japanese actress to play the part.

Simon Wilson discovers, by accident, that his long-time lawyer friend, Charlie Wentworth, is arranging for large sums of money to be laundered in Mexico. But he hasn’t discovered that his wife, Ramona, is involved with Charlie in the get-rich-quick scheme. When she tells Charlie that Simon knows not about them, but about the money, the big boys decree that Simon must go. But Simon bests a hit man ready to kill him with an automatic revolver and miraculously evades a speeding auto. Angered by these failures, the big boys order Charlie and Romana to do the job themselves.
