Ventriloquist Jonathan West isn't having much luck finding a job. He's gone to several auditions but no one taken him on. He's falling behind in his rent and is now getting to the point where he's running out of things to pawn. He has to put up with the taunts of young Susan, the landlady's niece. He's also talking to his dummy, Caesar, who has advice for him on how to get ahead. It's not very good advice however. Written by
Little girl and a wooden doll, a lethal dummy in the shape of a man. But everybody knows dummies can't talk - unless, of course, they learn their vocabulary in the Twilight Zone.

This time it's Jackie Cooper. Last time it was Cliff Robertson. And
again there is a ventriloquist's dummy that is smarter than these guys.
They are also vengeful and evil. They are the smart ones too. In this
episode Jackie has a phony Irish accent. He is immigrant stock that has
come by a dummy. He lives in a small apartment. He is down on his luck
and needs money badly. The dummy talks him into robbing a nightclub
where he has auditioned. Thrown into the mix is a bad seed child, a
mean tempered little brat who listens at keyholes and talks down to
adults. It's a ridiculous episode with motivations that don't even fit
well in this strange fantasy world. You can only go so far with the
threatening visage of a block of wood.
