Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The A-Team shows up in rural California, where ruthless landowner Chuck Easterland (Stuart Whitman) is trying to drive Penhall Produce Farms out of business. Championing the cause of Joe Penhall (Robert Sampson) and his daughter Ellen (Devon Ericson), the team volunteers their services to deliver the farm's crop of watermelons to market. Unfortunately, they're blocked every inch of the way by Easterlands hired goons--and melons are a mighty perishable commodity. This is the episode in which the precious car owned by reporter Amy Allen (Melinda Culea) is reduced to a pile of scrap iron.
