Stockwell needs to stamp out some kind of paramilitary group in Central America, which is funding its operations through covert shipments of cheap hamburgers. So the team opens up La Casa Gordita, a revolving restaurant in Curuguay, to draw them out. The thugs fall so hard for Murdock’s Hobo Skillet breakfast that they’re too full to raid the capital anymore. Stockwell is pleased, though he has to come up with $50 million to start a heart health awareness campaign for the much chubbier Curuguayans.
The show is really getting into this whole arrest-and-trial storyline â€“ they hired William F. Buckley to host a fictional version of his real show, â€œFiring Line,â€ and he and Noam Chomsky, Walker Percy and Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney debate the team’s trial and whether or not they actually killed Colonel Morrison. Seriously, they hired the prime minister to debate the A-Team!
Hunt Stockwell’s machinations have put the A-Team in government hands at long last. But the long-awaited court martial doesn’t take place. Why? Because both parties in the suit have agreed to dismiss their court cases and have their disputes settled here, in our forum… The People’s Court!
Hannibal has a new acting gig, but this time he’s no movie monster â€“ he’s Madge, the manicurist with the â€œthirst for powerâ€! He’s a little out of his range as an actor, but it’s a big break, and a handy one too; when the team crosses paths with the greedy owner of a chemical plant, Hannibal lowers the guy into a big vat of Palmolive, and yells â€œYou’re soaking in it, slimeball!â€
