by some cowardly hoodlums.

- No way for a man to die.

- You're right, Ed.

A parachute not opening -

that's the way to die,

getting caught in a combine,

having your nuts bit off

by a Laplander.

That's the way I want to go.

Frank! This is terrible!

Don't worry, Wilma.

Your husband is gonna be all right.

Just think positive.

Never let a doubt enter your mind.

He's right, Wilma,

but don't wait till the last minute

to fill out those organ donor cards.

What I'm trying to say is,

as soon as Nordberg is better,

he's welcome back at Police Squad.

Unless he's a drooling vegetable,

but that's only common sense.

Do you know why Nordberg

was at the waterfront?

No...

But I found this at home in a drawer.

A photograph!

"I Luv You" out of Caracas.

A Panamanian ship.

When he said "I love you", he was

telling you the name of the ship!

I realise that... now.

- We'd better check this out.

- I want every available man on it.

I can't spare anybody.

We're in charge of security

for Queen Elizabeth's visit.

Wilma, whatever scum did this,

no man will rest until he's behind

bars. Let's grab a bite to eat.

Due to the extraordinary efforts

of some of our civic leaders,

Queen Elizabeth has included

the city of Los Angeles

as one of the cities she'll visit

during her American tour.

Will the city hire

additional security officers?

We have placed the Queen's security

in the hands of Police Squad,

a special division

of the Police Department,

represented here

by Lieutenant Frank Drebin.

Thank you, Your Honour.

Louder!

- You can use my radio mic.

- Thank you.

Thank you, Your Honour.

Protecting the Queen's safety

is a task that is gladly accepted

by Police Squad.

No matter how silly the idea

of having a queen might be to us,
