Today's A-Team At 30 article celebrates the "face" of the team and his 10 Best Scams which include playing a doctor, a priest, one of Col. Decker's MPs, and a car salesman. Please note as we journey through our series of articles that our lists are in no particular order.
Templeton Peck: Hannibal, this is disgusting. I'm selling used cars, do you know what that does to the self-esteem of an artist like myself?
John "Hannibal" Smith: [disguised as rich Johnny B] Ah, poor chap, sales not going well, what?
Templeton Peck: Not going well? I had to slow down so half the stiffs around here don't think my customers are set-ups!
In the "Road Games" episode, Face serves as jukebox maintenance man Russ Dorsett who ends up climbing the criminal echelon. While inside, he tells the A-Team where the illegal casino's next location will be. He ends up "fixing" a new set of casino equipment to allow people to actually win.
To buy some time to help a young man save his father's oil rig, Face and Murdock set up a road block to slow down the local bandits for hire. Playing an army officer, he advises them to turn around and take another route because of a potential radiation hazard. His tool? A tape player! Earlier in the episode, he had recorded a clicking sound via a baseball card in a tire spoke. He uses the sound to trick the men that radiation is near.
