Patrick "Big Mac" MacCreedy is tired of years of feuding with the neighboring Amandariz family, whose land abuts his own and is occasionally shaped by the Rio Grande. So he hires Heyes and Curry to try to negotiate a settlement. They put on their game faces and have their hats in hand as they visit the Armaendariz mansion, and get the expected rebuff. But there is a new player in the game -- Armandariz's spinster sister, who is even less friendly than he but who has a deeply religious streak. Heyes and Curry play on that, telling her that MacCreedy is a Catholic widower and piling on the soft soap (some of which is actually true). Carlotta, the sister, decides to investigate MacCreedy herself. There may be a way out of the feud after all. This was the writing debut of Juanita Bartlett for Roy Huggins, who brought her over to "The Rockford Files" a couple of years later; he soon left but she stayed for the whole run and worked extensively with Huggins protégé' Stephen J. Cannell before... Written by Peter Harris

Did You Know?


This is the only ASJ episode where one episode leads directly into the one that follows. During the closing tag, when the boys are flush with Big Mac's payoff, they decide to revised Santa Marta, Mexico and hide out there for a year - but then they decide to go and pick up Clementine Hale to go with them. It can be argued that these episodes are actually two parts of a single episode, because in each case the ultimate object is to wrap up the stories of recurring characters. (The Devil's Hole Gang makes its last appearance here, along with Big Mac and Senor Arminderiz; Harry Briscoe had been fixed up in "The Long Chase"; the con men Soapy Sanders, Silky O'Sullivan and Diamond Jim Guffey were put to bed at the end of the previous season (along with Gerogette Sinclair, who is Clementine played by a different actress), and Clementine would depart after doing the next show. The only survivor would be Sheriff Lom Trevors, and he was given an expanded role and recast to work more closely with the boys in Wyoming. See more »
