1 A Substantial Gift (The Broken Promise), 04-Mar-1982
Sally, a bank teller deeply in debt, robs her own bank and plants evidence that implicates a fairly commonplace man who was present during the crime. Police Squad, a special unit of the police force, is called to investigate a double shooting that happened during the robbery. However, the stories just don't add up. The evidence builds and points in Sally's direction, but it's up to Frank to find the clues that will put her away.

  • Ted Olsen's Experiment: Condensation, which he compares to "just like when your mother gets out of the shower, glistening with tiny little beads..." before getting cut off.
  • Next Week's Experiment: Interesting experiments with discarded swimwear.
  • Johnny's Next Customer: A minister wanting to know about life after death.
  • Elevator Gag: It opens out on an airport lounge and a stewardess boards. Then she leaves and a female diver enters. She leaves on another floor and dives into a pool - the water just misses Ed.
