After the Hulk changes in the climax, and grabs Harrison Cole by the collar, to shield him from Doug Hewitt, so he cant shoot him, after the threat is over, Hulk lets Cole go and the long shot shows a patch of green paint on the jacket where the Hulk had grabbed him, but a close up shot shows the jacket straight and no green paint on it.

Dr. David Bruce Banner: [laughs nervously] I, I doubt it.
Frank Rivera: Just a cop's hunch. Take care, my friend.

The Assassin
22 November 2014 | by AaronCapenBannerSee all my reviews

David Banner(Bill Bixby) befriends a troubled young man named Doug Hewitt(played by Paul Koslo) who is a Vietnam veteran suffering from hallucinations, and has a half-baked plan to assassinate a political candidate(played by Bruce Gray) for personal reasons, as he may have committed some undiscovered crime. David goes to the candidate's headquarters to warn him, but instead is taken and tortured by an aide with sonic waves via earmuffs to get more information, which brings out an enraged Hulk who demolishes the place. David instead then tries to stop Doug directly, who has now taken a young dancer hostage... Good episode has fine acting and an intelligent script, though poor David once again suffers for trying to do the right thing!
