Trust Fund Pirates

          Page 2


Next we go aboard the Captain’s boat. The interior scenes were filmed aboard the Diderot, a 127 foot river barge.

Crockett and Tubbs are able to talk their way into finding out who the pilot is and where he can be found. This leads us up to Broward County. To North Perry Airport. They pull up to an airplane hangar at 7501 Pembroke Road in Pembroke Pines, Florida.

We see Crockett and Tubbs make some headway with the pilot before we cut back to Jumbo’s at Aviation Propellers.

After that goes south, we cut to Raouls. The exterior is located in Los Angeles, California. The interior of the bar was filmed on a set at Greenwich Studios. The script refers to the bar as, Florimbi’s.

Then we return to Jackson’s hangar at North Perry Airport. Here they negotiate a deal before Jackson’s girlfriend, Lani shows up. Crockett and Tubbs are roped into taking her to the Arc Light. The Arc Light is a Lauderdale meat market, arcade with bad pizza and beer. Crockett and Tubbs are the oldest people in the place and they are not so happy. The interior was all filmed at Greenwich Studios on a set. The establishing exterior shot appears to be stock footage from a Los Angeles location.  Location unknown.

Then we go inside a shooting gallery/ drug den, where Jackson is trying to track down the pirates. This was filmed at the Biscaya Hotel, 540 West Avenue, Miami Beach. We saw this building used in episode 15, Smuggler’s Blues.

Act three opens with Jackson, Crockett and Tubbs back at Florimbi’s (studio set).

Then we return to Jackson’s hangar.

Then we go to Mueller’s house. This was filmed at 28 Harbor Point, Key Biscayne. We have seen this house used in The Great McCarthy, Payback, and Yankee Dollar.

Then we return to the O.C.B. before heading to the meet at the airport (North Perry).

There is an unexpected change of plans at the airport and we see the group fly off to Key Biscayne where we see them land and pull up to Mueller’s house (28 Harbor Point Dr.).

With help from Jackson, Crockett and Tubbs survive and the episode ends with Jackson flying off into the sunset.
