Sam leaps into Marty Elroy a traveling salesman who is also a bigamist who has two families. One of them lives in Brooklyn while the other live in Pompano Beach. He's managed to keep them apart up to now but faces a major challenge when his Brooklyn family decides to drive to Florida to surprise him. Al tells Sam that he's there to pick between the two families but has little guidance for him on which family he should choose. He suggests that Sam just spend time with each of them and then choose. That isn't Marty's only problem however. He's something of a gambler and is in debt. His bookie gives him 24 hours to come up with $2000 or else. As for choosing between the two families, he decides that honesty is the best policy. Written by garykmcd
