Pretty straight forward and simple.

An old tailor loves the independence his job gives him. However, he's having some financial problems and might end up losing the place. But he doesn't want to ask his son for money. When he's talking to his bartender friend about this, the bartender tells him that he knows a nice guy that will gladly lend him the money. The old man goes to a gym and an old retired boxer agrees to give him the money for a small fee. However, when the old guy cannot pay him back on time, the nice ex-boxer becomes a not so nice thug--slapping the old guy around and demanding enormous interest. He also has his thugs beat up the bartender! Naturally, when Captain Braddock gets involved, the entire situation is remedied and everyone but the brutal ex-boxer has a happy ending.

Aside from some lousy acting by the ex-boxer, this is a decent and pretty straight-forward episode of the series. It also had a funny scene involving a drunk who wouldn't get off the pay phone. Worth your time.
