Goofs

Willie and Terry are changing into street clothes in the station locker room after their shift as Don Richardson (Mark Slade) hides half dressed in a stolen police uniform on the other side of some lockers. The change of clothing consists of taking their uniform shirts, hats and duty belts off. They, however keep their uniform shoes and uniform trousers on. Terry puts a dress shirt on and Willie puts what appears to be a jacket on over his white T-shirt and they leave the locker room. Not consistent with the way police officers dress down to off duty clothes in reality or even on this TV including this show. See more »
