Storyline

Tod and Buz are working in Chicago as, respectively, a motel lifeguard and a warehouse employee. Buz inadvertently helps colleagues who are playing a nasty practical joke on their supervisor; the latter, profoundly embarrassed by the intrusion into his private life, quits. Buz tries to help him regain his confidence, in part by orchestrating a meeting between the supervisor and the telephone-answering-service woman that the "joke" centered on. Written by dubchi

10/19/62 "Voice at the End of the Line"
15 July 2015 | by (N Syracuse NY) – See all my reviews

More crazy continuity as we're back in Chicago, (and Tod is working at the same hotel the next episode takes place in- one they started working at in that episode). Buz has for some reason left his job at the hotel, (where he's still staying) to work as a stock clerk for a local company. He sees some of his new co-workers trying to wire up a loud-speaker and he advises them on how to do it, (it's just like his hi-fi set). It turns out they are playing a trick on the head of the shipping department, (Sorrell Brooke), who each day at a particular time, makes a romantic telephone call to a woman he has never met- one who works for his answering service. His men have a good time mocking him when it's broadcast to the entire facility and the guy, (his name is Sam), runs away, humiliated.

Buz enlists Tod in finding Sam and they catch up with him at the top of the Tribune Tower and convince him to get together with his lady love. They do the John Alden thing, (although Buz references an old movie about Tchaikovsky, probably "Song of My Heart", 1948) with the young and handsome Tod impersonating the short, dumpy middle-aged Sam. "Ruthie" steps out of a car and proves to be a drop-dead gorgeous young woman whom Tod falls hard for. Then comes a wonderful O Henry-type ending. I kinda wish I knew who played this "Ruthie" but she doesn't appear in the credits.
