4-64 Goodbye, Eddie Cain

Ending sequence (same as in "Falling Angels")

  • A light-hearted episode with a neat twist in that it is told from another character's perspective.
  • Hulk-out 1: Coming to the aid of the gumshoe in the garage who is being beaten up for not minding his own business, and getting beaten up himself, kicked under a low riding sportscar that has been jacked up for repairs, and whose jack is removed so that the car can fall on David
  • Hulk-out 2: Being caught at the old studio backlot with the same gumshoe, by same nasty bad guys, and trying to run away so as not to get angry with them, only to have them pull a heavy old scene facade down on top of him 


It was a big green thing, and it definitely wasn't happy about something. —Eddie Cain (in voiceover after 1st Hulk-out)
It was that green thing again, and it still wasn't happy. —Eddie Cain (in voiceover after 2nd Hulk-out)


This is the first Hulk episode directed by Jack Colvin (he would also direct "East Winds").
