The desk sergeant was a character in Picard's holoprogram of the private detective Dixon Hill. He was interested in Dr. Crusher who also was taking part in the program. He offered her a stick of chewing gum, which she accepted, and he said that she was a hot broad. Crusher asked if that was good. He asked her if she liked Tommy Dorsey, and that he had two tickets for his show. Crusher did not take him up on his offer, and, not knowing what to do with chewing gum, she gave it a few chews, then swallowed it. (TNG: "The Big Goodbye")

News Vendor (Dixon Hill)
A news vendor

The news vendor was a friend of Dixon Hill. When Jean-Luc Picard was playing the role of Dixon Hill in his holoprogram, he wanted to buy a paper from him, and he referred to the vendor as "Mac". He didn't have any money, and the vendor told him to not worry about it and catch him next time.

As Picard was reading the paper he mispronounced the name of Joe DiMaggio and Data corrected him. Data then mentioned DiMaggio's hitting streak which he said would reach 56 games before being stopped by Cleveland. The vendor said Data was nuts because Cleveland did not have any pitching. When Data further stated that the record would be broken in 2026 by Buck Bokai of the London Kings, the vendor wanted to know where Data was from. Picard answered South America and the vendor sarcastically said Data had a nice tan. (TNG: "The Big Goodbye")

The news vendor was played by Dick Miller. The script refers to this character as "vendor", although a line of Picard's and scene instructions refer to the character as Joe. That, however, was not said in the episode. [1]
