Later on, however, Jack is hauled into court in the company of an prostitute--and while still surprised, Christine is far from delighted! The situation turns out to be both innocent and rather poignant, but not before Judge Harry (Harry Anderson) must wrestle with another case involving elderly nudists. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Night Court: Mac and Quon Le: No Reservations Quon Le (Denice Kumagai) hopes that her marriage to big-hearted Mac (Charlie Robinson) will enable her to finance a Vietnamese restaurant. But things turn sour when Mac's bigoted millionaire grandfather (Charles Lampkin) cuts him off without a cent. Bumper Robinson makes his first appearance as courtroom shoeshine specialist Leon. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Night Court: Hello, Goodbye Night Court begins its third season as Judge Harry T. Stone (Harry Anderson) and his staff resign themselves to the death of caustic, chain-smoking courtroom matron Selma Hacker (actress Selma Diamond had passed away a few months after shooting wrapped on Season Two). Taking things hardest is bailiff Bull (Richard Moll), who goes out on a drunken bender--only to be hauled back into court with a batch of bibulous circus performers. This episode marks the first appearance of Florence Halop as Selma's equally cranky replacement Florence Kleiner; as a bonus, Markie Post joins the cast in the previously recurring role of public defender Christine Sullivan, replacing Ellen Foley as Billie Young. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Night Court: Halloween, Too Harry falls for a dazzling young woman named Kimberly (Mary-Margaret Humes), who claims to be a genuine witch. A tabloid reporter (George Murdock) intends to make hay of this situation, leaving Harry in a most embarrassing predicament (so what else is new?) Meanwhile, Dan (John Larroquette) frantically searches for a costume to wear at Harry's annual Halloween bash. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Night Court: The Hostage Hauled into court for stealing electronic communication components, a man (Kenneth Tigar) claiming to be from the planet Saturn pulls out a gun and holds the courtroom hostage. This proves to be most inconvenient for Dan (John Larroquette), who has finally managed to line up a date with his latest object of affection Sheila (Leslie Bevis). Things get worse when the wrong person consumes the drugged meat intended to incapactite the self-proclaimed Saturnian. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Night Court: Walk Away, Renee Gentle giant Bull (Richard Moll) is hopelessly in love with an attractive young woman named Renee (Randee Heller). So euphoric is Bull that his coworkers haven't got the heart--or the guts--to tell him that Renee is--to put it as discreetly as possible--a "working woman." Will this be a Pretty Woman love-conquers-all situation, or is Bull riding for another fall? ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Night Court: The Wheels of Justice, Part 2 In the conclusion of a two-part story, Harry (Harry Anderson) has quit his job as Night Court judge, frustrated and disgusted by a municipal budget cut that has resulted in panic, hostility and tragedy. As the courtroom staffers try to lure Harry out of a seedy pool hall and back behind the bench, Harry's elderly replacement (Kenneth Tobey) drops dead in mid-sentence! Future Star Trek: The Next Generation regular Brent Spiner appears as the head of the Wheeler family, a collection of raucous rubes who may or may not be from West Viriginia. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Night Court: The Wheels of Justice, Part 1 In the first episode of a two-part story, the Night Court staff is cut off from their paychecks by a municipal budget crisis. This freeze could not have come at a worse time for Harry, who is trying to save a cleaning lady (Susan Ruttan) and her troubled son (Harold P. Pruett) from being tossed into the street by a nasty landlord (Charles Bouvier). Ultimately, tragedy strikes--and a frustrated Harry quits his job! This episode marks the first appearance of the Wheelers, a rambunctious family of indigents who claim to hail from West Virginia (future Star Trek: The Next Generation regular Brent Spiner is seen as Bob Wheeler). ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Night Court: Up On the Roof Harry (Harry Anderson) offers his chambers as a safe harbor for rock star Eddie Devon (Michael Ross), who during his six years of celebrity has been mercilessly besieged by a parisitic entourage, an opportunistic psychiatrist (Stuart Pankin), and a swarm of crazy fans. Alas, Eddie's short spurt of freedom doesn't last too long. By episode's end, a covey of fans have taken over the courtroom roof--and Eddie is trapped in the elevator shaft! ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Night Court: Dan's Boss Dwarf actor Daniel Frishman makes his first appearance as Dan's new boss Vincent Daniels, who makes up for his lack of height with a towering knowledge of legal matters--not to mention a mile-wide mean streak. Curiously, the more Vincent threatens to make Dan's life a living hell, the more Dan (John Larroquette) likes it! Meanwhile, court matron Flo (Florence Halop) is squired by a very strange gentleman. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Night Court: Best of Friends Macho man Dan (John Larroquette) looks forward to a reunion with his old college buddy Chip--and especially to the prospect of joining Chip in an old-fashioned "girl hunt." Though the original TV Guide listing for this episode did not indicate the reason that Dan was sorely disappointed when Chick arrived, the fact that the character was played by famed female impersonator Jim Bailey) rather gave the game away. And in case any further hints are needed, be it noted that Chip now prefers to be called Charlene. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Night Court: Dan's Escort To fatten his bank account, Dan (John Larroquette) moonlights as a professional escort for wealthy women. One of his clients (Barbara Cason) is so enraptured by Dan that she insists he accompany her home--and thence to her bedroom! Meanwhile, Harry (Harry Anderson) tries to help out when the newly-arrived wife of Russian Ã©migrÃ© Yakov (Yakov Smirnoff) is arrested. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Night Court: The Apartment Dan (John Larroquette) is more put out than pleased when Harry (Harry Anderson) throws a surprise birthday party in his honor; it seems that the libidinous prosecutor has arranged a hot date in his own pad for midnight. Alas, it looks as though Dan will miss his romantic rendezvous, thanks to a series of unforeseen catastrophes. For starters, Christine (Markie Post) is locked in a box during a misfire magic trick; then, the family of Mac's (Charlie Robinson) Vietnamese bride Quon Le (Denice Kumagai) arrives with suicide on their minds; and finally, the stripper hired by Harry shows up at the same time as the social worker who is checking up on Harry's temporary foster son Leon (Bumper Robinson). ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Night Court: Hurricane, Part 2 In the conclusion of a two-part story, Hurricane Mel bears down upon New York City just as four very pregnant defendants simultaneously go into labor in Harry's courtroom. In the course of events, one of the mothers-to-be (played by action-film diva Pam Grier) decides it's about time to marry her baby's father, while Dan (John Larroquette) is pressed into service as an emergency obstetrician! And just to make things even more difficult, Harry (Harry Anderson) must deal with the trailer-trash excesses of the Wheeler family (headed by future Star Trek: The Next Generation costar Brent Spiner). Florence Halop makes her last appearance as court matron Florence Kleiner in this, the final episode of Night Court's third season. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Night Court: Hurricane, Part 1 In the first episode of a two-part story, New York City battens down in preparation for the arrival of Hurricane Mel. Several people end up being trapped in Harry's courtroom, with no supplies or utilities. Among those huddled together are four very pregnant defendants--not to mention those inimitable indigents, the Wheeler family from West Virginia! Former blaxploitation-film diva Pam Grier plays one of the moms-to-be, while future Star Trek: The Next Generation costar Brent Spiner repeats his role as Bob Wheeler. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Night Court: Flo's Retirement Florence (Florence Halop) has mixed feelings while celebrating her birthday, inasmuch as she has now reached the age of mandatory retirement. Surprised by this turn of events, Florence's coworkers plot and plan to keep her on the job--and nearly lose their own jobs in the process. This episode was designed to prepare viewers for the inevitable departure of costar Florence Halop, who was seriously ill at the time (she would pass away a few months later). ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Night Court: Monkey Business? Soft-hearted Bull (Richard Moll) risks contempt of court--and by extension, his job--when he takes a liking to a baby orangutan, brought into court as evidence. Rather than allow the simian to be subjected to scientific experimentation, Bull "liberates" it from the lab doctor (Alex Henteloff) in charge. Meanwhile, Dan (John Larroquette) romances a pretty lady (Patty Dworkin) who has lost her memory. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Night Court: Could This Be Magic? Comic magician Carl Ballantine (remember him as "Gruber" on McHale's Navy?) guest stars as The Fabulous Falconi, a childhood idol of Judge Harry T. Stone (Harry Anderson). Discovering that Falconi is broke and homeless, magic aficionado Harry hires the old prestidigator for a private performance in his apartment. Falconi returns the favor by making several things disappear--including most of Harry's valuables! ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Night Court: Harry and Leon Upon discovering that shoeshine boy Leon (Bumper Robinson) is an orphan who literally lives in the court building, kind-hearted Harry (Harry Anderson) considers taking the boy in as a foster son. This brings Harry face to face with brusque social worker Charlotte Lund (Margot Rose) for the first (but definitely not the last!) time. Somehow or other, an illegal pie-thrower is also worked into the proceedings. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Night Court: The Night Off While Harry (Harry Anderson) takes a night off, his replacement is the much-older Judge Robert Hirsch (Jeff Corey). This turns out to be a calamitous substitution: though Harry may be eccentric, Judge Hirsch proves to be downright certifiable. Before the night is over, the half-baked Hirsch has jailed public defender Christine (Markie Post) and prosecutor Dan (John Larroquette)--and replaced them with court matron Florence (Florence Halop) and resident derelict Phil (William Utay)! Future Evening Shade regular Michael Jeter shows up in a minor role. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Night Court: The Mugger In a classic example of the old adage "a Conservative is a Liberal who's been mugged", public defender Christine (Markie Post) sours on her job after being robbed and assaulted. Even worse, just as Christine is about to quit her post, the mugger comes back into her life, holding the courtroom hostage with a hand grenade! Meanwhile, Phil the Wino (William Utay) drives Dan (John Larroquette) crazy with a tantalizing stock tip. This episode was originally scheduled to air on January 23, 1986. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Night Court: Leon, We Hardly Knew Ye It had to happen: Harry's idol Mel Torme has shown up in the courtroom! Unfortunately, it looks as though Harry (Harry Anderson) will pass up the opportunity to meet the fabled Velvet Fog. It seems that he is bogged down with personal problems involving courtroom shoeshine boy Leon (Bumper Robinson), who has run away from his nerdy adoptive parents--and intends to move back in with Harry whether Social Services likes it or not. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide

All the houses in Black Falls look exactly the same, and everyone who lives in this suburban Shangri-la works for Black Box Unlimited Worldwide Industries Incorporated. A highly profitable company thanks to their latest invention, Mr. Black's Black Box -- an all-in-one communication device that's revolutionized the technological landscape -- Black Box Unlimited Worldwide Industries Incorporated also employs the parents of 11-year-old Toe Thompson. But Toe isn't entirely sold on the concept of this corporate conglomerate; all he wants is to make some new friends, and that wish comes true after Toe is struck in the head by a mysterious rainbow-colored rock that falls right out of the clear blue sky. A magical stone that puts Mr. Black's Black Box to shame, Toe's rock possesses the power to grant wishes. Now, as the rock begins to change hands, Black Falls is overrun by miniature spaceships, crocodile armies, boogers the size of boulders, and whatever other oddities the imaginative local kids happen to dream up. Who would have thought that the real trouble would start once the grown-ups in town get their hands on the mysterious rock? With the situation quickly spiraling out of control, it's up to Toe and his friends to save the townspeople from themselves by proving to them that the things you wish for may not actually be the best things for you.
