Trivia

This episode was singled out for its brazen sexual innuendo. Program Practices requested that Larry Blyden not refer to a girl as "a broad ... really stacked," even though the crudity was essential to establishing the unsavory qualities of Blyden's character. Nor could the protagonist refer to a party as "a ball," since that word had more than one meaning. In another "Nice Place" sequence, a voluptuous young lady tends to Blyden's every need, then says "Is there anything else I can do for you?" CBS's comment: "Please be certain that the girl's third speech be delivered in a sweet manner, as described." See more »

Goofs

When Rocky attempts to shoot Pip, he shoots a lamp to make sure the gun works. The lamp breaks a full second after he shoots, showing that it's just an effect. See more »

Quotes

Narrator: [opening narration] Portrait of a man at work, the only work he's ever done, the only work he knows. His name is Henry Francis Valentine, but he calls himself "Rocky", because that's the way his life has been - rocky and perilous and uphill at a dead run all the way. He's tired now, tired of running or wanting, of waiting for the breaks that come to others but never to him, never to Rocky Valentine. A scared, angry little man.

Not Much of an Imagination
2 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If the principle character had been a cat, he would have been very happy. In this episode, a small time hoodlum gets shot. When he awakens he is in the presence of Sebastian Cabot, who appears to be on his side. The man is given whatever he wants. He chooses the most base, crass, set of circumstances. Those things that mattered to him during his miserable life. There is a scene where he actually tries to shoot his benefactor. I guess we all imagine what our own hells would be like. We might think a little more. For him, boredom comes easily because he has few options. It has an interesting conclusion and the guy gets what's coming from him.
