I wondered about Big Ed being on "stakeout" but figured I just hadn't
been listening.  Hmmm....

But here's one that really made me sit up and take notice when I was
re-viewing the tapes to make the cast list (which was the first time I
noticed that each episode took place all in one day--an influence from
exec producer Mark Frost's Hill Street Days??  :) ).

On day 1, Bobby and Mike are sitting in jail, talking about the $20,000
they have to give to Leo (the trucker).  They have a problem because
Bobby gave half of it (he says) to Laura for safekeeping and now the
police have it.  But the other half, he says, he gave to Leo "last
night."

Well, last night Leo was supposedly in Butte, Montana!  Shelley sure
thought so when Bobby drove her home after breakfast at the diner this
morning.  And Bobby sure acted surprised and dismayed to find Leo
around.  (And he had "called her from Butte" the night before.)  It
indeed was not in his interest to get caught there by Leo, yet he knew
he was around, having given him money the night before.

So what's going on here?  Can't wait to find out....

Sudden thought:  in order to tell if the call was really long distance
from Butte, Shelly shoulda called in Lucy the receptionist--you know, to
determine whether it sounded like air in the trees!
