The A-Team is hired by Warren Teasdale to recover his kidnapped daughter, Jennifer. Things get complicated when she resists being rescued.
Murdock: All Hannibal had to do was plant the homer and then take a slug in the bullet-proof vest. Why would he change the plan all of a sudden!?
Face: I don't know if he did change the plan, or if he just didn't tell us all of it in the first place.
Murdock: Sneaking back into a war zone a second time with the same plan is insane.
Hannibal: It's brilliant. They'll never think we'd be crazy enough to do it!
Hannibal drives a taxi out to the middle of nowhere and then leaves it there. Perhaps it was stolen from the Love Cab Company, hated rival of the cab company he partially owned as of The Taxicab Wars.
In any unusual bit of casting for the show, the terrorist second-in-command was female - named Katherine - ably played by Cherie Michan.
There was a strange cut. The team was under fire and preparing to escape using an inflatable raft, which got shot and deflated. The team rolled their eyes. Next scene, the team (perfectly dry) walked out of the woods with no pursuit. No explanation was given as to how they got away.
