In this pilot for a possible spinoff (and a possible exit for Lee Meriweather as Betty Jones, who was thinking about leaving the show if it was picked up for a ninth season due to her commitments to her fiance'), Kenneth Mars chews scenery like it's candy as the head of a father-son private-eye organization. The loopy father and sensible son suspect Betty in the murders of two of her cousins. When they realize she didn't do it, they go after the real bad guys and offer Betty a job as their partner. The producers did not know at the time of filming (and, in fact, until well after the episode aired) which of two Thursday-night series ("The Waltons" being the other) would get the one remaining spot after "Magnum, P.I." was tapped for the time slot; ultimately "The Waltons" got the nod because CBS wanted to experiment with a cast made up entirely of the youngsters on the show.l
