"Atomic Bomb" begins with an apartment manager (Al Ruscio, first of five) literally raising a stink about one tenant, a young man (Will Seltzer, first of two) whose place looks like 'Frankenstein's laboratory' (according to Nick). What he's done for his Master's thesis is create a portable prototype for an atomic bomb, which stumped Sgt. Kavanaugh (Stephen Pearlman), betting his 22 years of experience (and all 10 digits) that it's nothing but a stereo. Dietrich reacts instantly to the tiny device, to everyone's amazement ("where the hell's he get the atomic bomb?"). Phil Leeds (third of seven) plays Harry Kruger, whose wife (Helen Verbit, first of three) worries that he'll allow himself to be frozen cryogenically for 100 years by Mr. Swanson (Rod Colbin, second of seven). After reconsidering his wife's feelings, Kruger changes his mind, to Swanson's disappointment. His attempt to coerce Wojo proves unsuccessful ("I think things ought to be natural, that's all...making a guy a popsicle ain't my idea of natural!").
