T.J. HOOKER SOUNDCLIPS!

Episode 2-12:
"The Survival Syndrome"

In this pre-Corrigan episode, Romano is shot in the head by a carjacker causing him to lose his nerve on the job, while Hooker is accused of shooting Greg, an unarmed teen, who had become involved with the very same carjacking thieves, who steal cars and re-condition them so they can no longer be traced (referred to in the episode as "chop shop jobs").

Greg's friend David Harmon, another teen who initiated David into the carjacking fold, is captured by Hooker and Romano as a potential lead to finding the carjackers who were responsible for the death of Greg. The District Attorney's office decides to have Hooker stand trial for murder, while Romano (even with a concussion) makes plans to start up a side-business selling papaya oil at Sherry's Bar.

As this eminently-quotable episode begins, Hooker laments the fact that his wife Fran has gone back to work as a nurse at Mercy Hospital, while Romano joins him out on a routine patrol . . .
