Storyline

A well-dressed gentleman presents himself at a secretarial agency that hasn't failed to satisfy a client in twenty-five years. But this dapper client isn't looking for superior typing or shorthand skills, nor even for a young woman with a slim and sexy figure. What exactly does he want? Written by Morganalee

Odd to see this segment listed separately from the other episodes, as it was used as a replacement for the dreadful original one called 'Witches' Feast'. This really should have been included with that episode, since it is only a few minutes long, and not intended to be its own episode, but oh well, I'll review it like this anyway! Victor Buono plays a portly man who seems dissatisfied with the attractive but slim secretarial candidates, until the last one comes up, who is quite plump and unattractive, just as he wants... No guarantee is more the case here in entirely unfunny, bizarre, and pointless vignette that is just marginally better than most of its kind.
