- THE JERSEY BOUNCE
Original Air Date: October 6, 1978
Synopsis. Rocky and his neighbors have been harassed by Eugene Conigliaro and Mickey Long, a pair of lowbrow hustlers who are anxious to ingratiate themselves with mob boss Artie Nodzak. Conigliaro and Long intimidate the community with their wild parties, loud music, and overt drug dealings. Jim intercedes on behalf of his father and nearly gets into a fight with Conigliaro. Later, Rockford unwittingly becomes an integral part of Conigliaro and Long’s plans to coax their way into the mob. When they discover that Nodzak’s sister dates a man who beats her, Conigliaro and Long kill the boyfriend—and pin the murder on Rockford.
