episode number: season 1, episode 11 (1983)
viewing setting: home DVD, 6/21/04
episode synopsis: The team gets hired to rescue an unwilling (and rich) woman who's about to be forced into a wedding.
impressions: This was a pretty good episode, involving the initial mission and then the secondary effort to escape the bad guys. In the process, they bring a murderer to justice. We get a helicopter chase and also some good comedy bits.
notable guest star: sadly, none that I could identify
what the team builds in this episode: they don't build anything, but they do mock up a fake wedding cake
Hannibal wisecrack highlight: unarmed, he walks right into the bad guy's office and threatens him
B.A. toughness highlight: disguised as a caterer, he forces the wedding chef to take his cake
Murdock insanity highlight: thinks he's a French chef, eats cake icing that's actually shaving cream, then in a rare bout of USEFUL insanity during a helicopter chase, he takes to the canyons and trees to evade/confuse the pursuing bad guys
Face scam highlight: asks the rescued woman out, then in an ironic twist, has to marry her as part of Hannibal's backup plan
Amy usefulness highlight: poses as a reporter to get surveillance pictures of the bad guy's house
