Stingray season 2 episode 9: The Second Finest Man Who Ever Lived
episode number: season 2, episode 9 (1987)
viewing setting: home DVD, 6/15/13
episode synopsis: Ray helps a retarded man whose father was killed to hide something illegal going on at the docks where he worked.
impressions: This one was okay. While I get that Ray was trying to console and help the kid along, he also risked blowing his cover by telling the kid too much and involving him in things we wasn't mentally able to understand or handle.
notable guest stars: none who I recognized
cool actions and tactics: Ray goes undercover as a dockworker, and calls in a couple of minor favors to help his investigation along. He also takes out two thugs with a double-uppercut punch.
Josh: "We're supposed to be the good guys, right? And good guys don't hurt anybody."
Ray: "Sometimes they do."
Josh: "Why do you help all these people"
Ray: "There's two kinds of people in this world...people who help and people who need help. It's a choice."
