*** This review may contain spoilers ***

***SPOILERS*** Down and out with no place to stay or food , besides from scavenging the throw aways from the restaurants and supermarkets, to eat in a desperate move Dave Sumner, Howard Morris, looks up his former collage classmate Stanley Towers, Jack Carter, for a job at his over-sized mansion in the suburb. Taking the desperate Sumner in as his personal butler Stanley feels a bit good in knowing that Sumner who was voted most likely to succeed in his collage class is now nothing but a homeless bum compare to him, who barley had passing grades, who's a multi millionaire.

Doing his job as best as he can Sumner is approached by Stanley's old lady Louise, Joanna Moore, who sick and tired of her scheming husband who's making all kinds of illegal deals with his cronies in the business world in order to avoid paying taxes. Wanting the very ethical Sumnner to check out with her Joanna is turned down by him in his total loyalty to the man that provided him not only employment but a roof over his head and food on the table. It's soon that Stanley notices that there something going on between Sumner and Joanna and kicks both of them out of his place with innocent Sumner who was loyal to him getting the worst of it. By him losing whatever safety net that the job working for Stanley provided for him.

****MAJOR SPOILERS**** It's later when Stanley is being audited by the IRS that he gets the surprise of his life. Not that the Federal Government finally got the goods on him in cheating on his tax returns but even more surprising who's the guy or IRS Government Agent who ended up getting the goods on him!

full of tension

9/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Any regular viewer of the series will always be looking for the twist, and in this regard, the episode's plot follows one's earliest predictions. However, this doesn't detract from the oddly tense story. Top of the Class college buddy Dave, now down-and out, visits rich friend Stanley who does shady deals. Stanley appears to mean well but really wants to humiliate Dave. Our opinion of Stanley lowers as he treats his own wife like property. While the wife's emotions are on the surface, Dave doesn't show anything. Because of his blank look and the one-shots isolating the actors, what's unsaid comes across even more palpably, like watching a bomb tick. Deliciously tense. Unnecessary, though perhaps intentionally humorous, is the climactic patriotic music which signifies the act of betrayal here was justified rather than cowardly.
