Detailed plot synopsis reviews of D.C. Cab

Gentle and aging hippie Harold (Max Gail, “Barney Miller”) is the owner of the dilapidated D.C. Cab, the worst taxi company in the nation's capitol.   When Harold is not dealing with his nagging, cheating and money-hungry wife Myrna (Anne De Salvo), he is trying to sort out his ragtag crew of cabbies, as they recklessly ride around town in horribly rundown vehicles. Optimistic Harold has a dream to make something of D.C. Cab, if he can only find the money (and the motivation) to do so.

Inspiration comes in the form of young Albert Hockenberry (Adam Baldwin, “My Bodyguard”), the son of an old war buddy. New in town, Albert is enthusiastic about receiving his cabbie license and prepares by riding around with each of the eccentric drivers. Albert is quickly disillusioned, as he discovers the unscrupulous attitude the other cabbies seem to share: do whatever you have to do to earn a buck. When D.C. Cab is inadvertently at the center of a kidnapping scandal, the cabbies must band together, with the hope of cleaning up their image in the process.
