Lethal Weapon: (S01E08) “Can I get a Witness?”


OMG Murtaugh is a motorcycle guy. He spent the entire episode trying to convince everyone that he was. He brought a motorcycle, which Trish says he can ride on sunny Sundays, and saves Rigg’s butt because of it. Only then did people believe him, though they were still pretty shocked. He took Trish on a motorcycle ride, but forgot that motorcycles hold less gas than cars because they ended up having to call their son for gas. He said he wasn’t angry, just disappointed. LOL

Riggs might have had a bit of a break through. The witness in this case was a child. The kid and Riggs took a liking to each other. He took care of him really well and even gave him and his Mom over $100,000 to start their new lives. It was the money he got from selling his house in Texas. Because of his experience with the kid he actually went out and bought food, especially dog food for the hungry stray he took in. This was one episode where he didn’t consider killing himself. So yes, progress. 

The case involved a robbery at a casino. Turns out it was a relative of the owner that did the robbery. They shot the kid’s Mom because they thought she saw their faces. 

Buss laugh moment of this episode:  The look on Murtaugh’s face every time someone told him they didn’t think he was a motorcycle guy.  

Punched in the feels moment of this episode:   Riggs handing over the money to the kid and his Mom. It was an incredibly kind gesture. 

Made me ponder for a sec moment of this episode:  n/a
