Doris Roberts and Peter Hobbs
10 May 2014 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"The Sighting" begins with Wojo's latest excuse for being tardy, spotting a cigar-shaped flying saucer over Staten Island. Capt. Donnelly (Jack Bannon) of the Air Force believes Wojo is just another crackpot, until corroborating evidence comes in from several Jersey residents, proclaiming the sighting to be nothing more than a weather balloon. Doris Roberts (second of four) plays Harriet Brauer, who wants her husband Phillip (Peter Hobbs, third of six) arrested for exchanging all their assets into gold. After careful deliberation, Harriet settles for getting her furniture back, while Harris buys one doubloon for $250 (Dietrich: "that's easy to count!"). Hobbs and Roberts would return as the Brauers in both "Wojo's Girl" and "Agent Orange."
