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

Old York
26 November 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is Dick York's second appearance on AHP (three more to come). In his first, he played a wise guy. This one seems a little more natural for him. I have to say, he really gives me a Jim Carrey vibe.

In a bit of period detail, we have two men (with jobs, nonetheless) living in a boarding house. York wants to get his vengeance on a stuffy bank teller. We only hear about and don't see the original transgression, and I think this is what made me sympathetic to the bank teller. The revenge goes too far, but we are also made to see that York's character has no selfish motive beyond that. The story also seems unrealistic, the way the gun is handled.

Ultimately, it plays for kicks, and is fairly effective at that. By Season 4, AHP risked repeating itself, and this episode at least isn't guilty of that.
