Storyline

Mr. Weems is supposedly near death. Some of his lodge brothers have invested in a cemetery and are in needs of customers. They make a bargain with Weems. They will pay Weems fifty dollars a week for the rest of his, presumably, short life if he agrees to buy the first plot. They hope that others following Mr. Weems's lead will also buy plots. Unfortunately, the men discover that Weems is a bit more resilient than any of them thought. Written by Anonymous

He Had the Gall Not to Die!
18 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While the entire premise of this episode is ludicrous, it still has its moments. If one were to analyze the business venture engaged in by this little group of lodge brothers (Raccoons perhaps, like Ed and Ralph), the plan is tenuous at best. To think that because a poor dying man eventually would be buried in the new cemetery, a herd of others would line up to buy plots is quite speculative. The joy in the episode is the group of four climbing four flights of stairs to see if the old guy is still alive or at least, hopefully, in dire straits. Of course, after the fifty dollar a week deal is struck, he begins to feel pretty good about life; he even strikes up a relationship with one of his caretakers. Of course, when they see him dancing and walking in the part, it gets pretty desperate. I won't use spoilers here, but sometimes the unexpected shows its hand and takes care of the problem. Watch this just to see the interaction of the real estate developer and his lodge-brother cohorts.
