The Blue Moon Detective Agency has finally posted a profit, but Maddie (Cybill Shepherd) spends every penny on a painting of herself. No, she's not motivated by vanity, but rather curiosity: The artist had never met Maddie, but was clearly infatuated by her--and shortly after completing the painting, he committed suidice. Or did he? One thing is certain: There are several unsavory-looking characters who'd love to get their hands on the mysterious portrait. Highlights of the this episode include the Bernard Herrmann-esque musical score, a wry comment by David (Bruce Willis) about the series' writing staff, and a climactic (and very messy) set-to in an auto-painting shop.
