This opening episode of Moonlighting's second season begins with stars Cybill Shepherd and Bruce Willis, aka Maddie and David, briefly dropping character to chat with the audience and explain that they have to kill a little time because the script isn't long enough to fill out the hour. In the story proper, Charles Rocket makes his first appearance as David's irksome brother Richie, who blows into town with one hundred thousand dollars to his name. David is jealous that Richie is able to impress Maddie by tossing his new-found wealth around, but what begins as a case of sibling rivalry develops into something far more deadly when it is revealed that the money actually belongs to a Philadelphia drug dealer named Mr. Navarone (Ed O'Ross)--a man who is not known for his gentle nature or sense of humor!
