After being shot in the act of a robbery, small-time bottom-feeder Rocky Valentine is visited by the angelic and portly "Mr. Pip" who transports him into a reality in which he can do no wrong. Rocky quickly discovers that "having" is not so pleasing a thing as "wanting". Especially, in the Twilight Zone. Written by
When Rocky kicks the women out and slams the door the entire wall shakes. Then when he is trying to open the door, you can see the wall and door frame moving along with the door. See more »
Henry Francis 'Rocky' Valentine:
If I gotta stay here another day, I'm gonna go nuts! Look, look. I don't belong in heaven - see? I wanna go to the other place.
Heaven? Whatever gave you the idea you were in Heaven, Mr. Valentine? This *is* the other place!
[laughs malevolently as Valentine tries to get out of the room, to no avail]

Valentine (Larry Blyden) is a thief who finds himself dead and in a realm of afterlife. Mr Pip (Sebastian Cabot) is his guide in the white suit. As all seems pleasant Valentine wonders if he might have done something good to get into heaven, but cant remember any such thing.
A light and dreamy fantasy that is one of the weaker entries of the outstanding first series, though it would have held it's own in any other season. The best asset is Sebastian Cabot, the unsung great character actor who voiced Baghera for 'The Jungle Book' and played Dr Hilyard in 'The Time Machine'. He was always a great actor to listen to.
Light fun, put across with tongue-in-cheek in an atmospheric white-looking corner of the Zone.
