With Robert Forrester.

Such a clever idea executed great. The milkman around the neighborhood has never been seen. However, he supposedly grants your requests if you leave a note with your milk. Robert Forrester buys into this and starts asking for more and more stuff from the milkman, but that doesn't cure his impotence. He finally asks for a child and we get a disturbing twist ending. The acting is really good and the whole plot is just really nice. I recommend you watch this if you can find it. Can be found on volume 5.

My rating: Perfect. 21 mins. TV PG
