Storyline

Norman Logan and William Tritt both live in the same boarding house. Tritt is a teller at a local bank and Logan is convinced the Tritt cheated him out of $200 on a deposit he made a year ago. Since that time he has been harassing Tritt in an attempt to get him to admit his error, but to no avail. Logan then hatches a plot to discredit Tritt in the eyes of his superiors at the bank. He buys a fake gun and pretends to rob the bank but by the time Tritt has raised the alarm, Logan has hidden the gun in an unused and nearly impossible to see drawer in an old table. He continues with these charades until he finally gets what he feels is his due. Written by garykmcd

Don't Mess with the Professor
17 June 2011 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Fuddy-duddy banker Tritt (Coolidge) and droll Professor Logan (York) share a dinner table at a respectable boarding house. Logan claims Tritt has shorted him two hundred-dollars to cover a mistake at the bank. Tritt however denies it, but judging from his smug demeanor we suspect the worst. Still, Logan is not one to forgive; plus, he's resourceful as heck. If I were Tritt, I'd give the money back, as the next 20-minutes shows.

Cleverly offbeat premise plays out rather humorously. York is so good at being sly, while Coolidge is perfectly cast as a priggish banker. Suspense comes from wondering what Logan will do next since the twists are anything but predictable. All in all, the entry fits in perfectly with the series emphasis on dark humor.
