An intermediary, Larry Dutton, of business tycoon Cesar Gaan offers McGraw $1,000 to do a job for Gaan but won't specify what the job is. McGraw is skeptical and tells Dutton that "A thousand dollars is a lot of money unless it gets you two thousand dollars worth of trouble." But in the end, McGraw goes to see Gaan and takes an immediate dislike to him. Which is easy to do since Gaan comes across as cold, manipulative, calculating and arrogant. Gaan tells McGraw that he is particularly busy now because someone is trying to push him out of his own business. But that's not what he wanted to see McGraw about. It seems his wife has disappeared. Somewhat against his better judgment he agrees to look into it. But once he finds Mary Gaan, he refuses to tell Gaan where she is. For Mary didn't just disappear, she ran away from Gaan. She had told McGraw that she was very fearful of Gaan and that if she has a friend, any friend, something bad happens to them - "I'm like Typhoid Mary." When McGraw tells Gaan this he essentially says that he"s wrong and that Mary is crazy. There is an interesting twist at the end but not one that's entirely believable. Other than to see Frank Lovejoy as McGraw, the highlight of this episode was seeing Angie Dickenson as Mary Gaan.
