Adam-12 - Season 3 - Episode 8

One of the finest episodes in the series' run, Malloy (who narrates this episode, Jack Webb-style) recalls the rainy night his previous on-duty partner was killed during a robbery. But Malloy's story goes much deeper, as he relates the life of the slain officer, confiding that the officer was more than just his partner, but a loyal and trusted best friend with a young family. Malloy also remembers how he met Reed and the early days of their relationship (before Malloy and Reed became a team). The opening and closing credits are shown over a black screen (in lieu of the usual sequences) without the music and with Jack Webb himself speaking, in apparent tribute to police officers who died in the line of duty.
