** ''Creatures Who Came On Sunday'': Everyone is convinced that the missing man just ditched his girlfriend, even Joe, and offers reasonable, likely explanations for what's happened to the DamselInDistress, Sharon...except Frank, who obsesses on tracking Sharon's boyfriend down despite being warned off by the sheriff, so-called government agents, and even Sharon herself, to the point that Frank's determination is responsible for leading mob killers onto the boyfriend (who is in a witness protection program) and nearly getting himself, Joe, and Sharon killed. Joe has severe doubts and questions Frank's persistence throughout the episode, to the point of dragging Frank away when Frank tries to shout to the missing boyfriend despite being surrounded by armed guards:

Added DiffLines:

** Even Joe becomes TheDeterminator in the episode ''Last Kiss of Summer''. He's out for revenge, and he will bring Jocko to justice personally, no matter who or what stands in his way. Joe ruins a federal sting operation, endangers a federal operative, and tramples all over his relationship with his father and brother and nearly gets his brother Frank killed as a result. It takes Frank punching him out to bring Joe back to his senses.

* DisposableWoman:
** ''Last Kiss of Summer'': See the entry for StuffedIntoTheFridge below.
** ''Dangerous Waters'': Ria Thomas exists only to be kidnapped by pirates and a pair of greedy treasure hunters, then rescued twice by the Hardy Boys.
** ''Arson & Old Lace'': Nancy Drew became this. We never see her actually working on the case. She exists only as the pathetic, helpless victim to be rescued by her love interest, Frank Hardy. And after this episode, she disappeared from the series for good, save for a one-line mention in ''Campus Terror''.

* StuffedIntoTheFridge: ''Last Kiss of Summer''. We're introduced to Jamie, the love of Joe's life, the woman he's willing to marry & throw over his entire life and career for -- a woman that we haven't met before nor has there been any reference to her throughout the entire series to this point -- and 10 minutes into the episode, right after the wedding rehearsal where we're shown Joe & Jamie pledging the vows, Jamie's killed by a random drunk driver, as Joe is driving, followed by Joe weeping over her bloody body in the car. Jamie only existed to die and to fuel Joe's RoaringRampageofRevenge for the rest of the episode.

The Hardy Boys are brother amateur detectives, Frank (Parker Stevenson) and Joe (Shaun Cassidy). The two boys live in the fictional city of Bayport, MA (not the NY of the books) with their famous father, Fenton Hardy (Edmund Gilbert), a private detective who'd spent 20 years with the New York Police Department and who seemingly has connections everywhere. The brothers can't seem to go anywhere without having a mystery drop into their laps; even driving down a road heading for home means they'll get stopped by a young woman running away from an angry mob. In the third season, the focus of the series moved exclusively to them as they become professional agents for the Justice Department.
