impressions: Well, this had plenty of 1980s wrestling and Hulkamania moments. It was entertaining, but it also seemed like an attempt to get ratings up by inserting famous guest-stars who the team just happens to know.

what the team builds in this episode: Nothing.

Hannibal wisecrack highlight: Poses as a gangster to intimidate other gangsters into revealing the location of the buried treasure.

B.A. toughness highlight: Gets to compete with Hulk Hogan to see who is the toughest.

Murdock insanity highlight: ???.

Face scam highlight: Nothing springs to mind, though he does scam a bit on the lady who runs the youth center.
