DiPesto's Phone Rhymes - On the detective dramedy
MOONLIGHTING/ABC/1985-89 Allyce Beasley played Agnes DiPesto, the
spunky yet daffy receptionist for the Blue Moon Detective Agency
(formerly knows as "City of Angels Investigations"). When she
answered the firm's phone calls, she spoke in rhymed phrases. Some
"City of Angel Investigations. Lost your stolen property our
specialty. You dropped it, we'll spot it. He cheats, we'll peek.
Little dog gone? We'll find him before dawn. No job is too big, no
job is too small."
"Blue Moon Detective Agency. We're detectives with a heart,
we really do our part. In your moment of need, we'll be there
indeed. So please don't be shy, just give us a try. We're
co-operative and discreet, we really can't be beat. And if I may be
so bold, I'd like to put you on hold."
"Blue Moon Investigations. Get in some trouble, we'll be
there on the double. Wife a philanderer, don't worry, we'll handle
her. Need someone tailed? We've never failed. We break every case,
we meet every goal and what's more...aqui se habla español"
"Blue Moon Detective Agency. If persons are missing, if
objects are lost, we'll find then for you at a reasonable cost. Your
runaway husband that non-paying louse. We'll find and bring him back
to the house. Lost a prize winning dog? Lost a prize winning cat?
We'll find them both for you in just no time flat. So tell us your
problem, it'll all work out fine. Just tell me your problem, it's
why I'm on the line.
TRIVIA NOTE: Fans of the series continue to create storylines on a
internet site called 'Virtual Moonlighting'. Here is a really funny Agnes Phone Greeting from a virtual episode entitled "The Wedding"
"Blue Moon Detective Agency. I'm mighty miffed, and I've sure got
the reason -- I've only had two stinking lines this whole season.
I've kept my mouth shut 'cause as part of the team, I have to agree,
season six is supreme. But please try to see it from my point of
view. Let me see...how can I best explain it to you? Without the
exposure as a well placed rhyme, I suffer from serious lack of "face
time." So virtual writers, I'm, pleading with you...Put me back in
the spotlight...and remember Bert, too."
