Trixie Zurbo is a rental cop who aspires to become an ace detective. Unfortunately, a severe lack of intelligence makes this difficult. She mangles the English language left and right with utterances such as, "Either fish or get off the pot" and "My sister's expecting, but I don't know yet whether I'll be an aunt or an uncle."
While Zurbo is not the brightest of the cast, she is not alone in her stupidity either. She is entangled with a corrupt state senator and a lounge singer when she takes on her first case. Her naivety makes for one hilarious mishap after another, especially when police suspect her of the murder she is attempting to solve.
