Storyline

David Gurney awakens on his bed fully clothed and realizes he's late for work. He and his wife Wilma had a few drinks the night before and she is sound asleep. When he can't find his razor he wakes her but she says he doesn't know who he is and demands he leave her house. His clothes are nowhere to be found and so heads off to work. He knows everyone there but like his wife, none of his co-workers have any idea who he is. He's desperate to find one piece of his identity to prove who he is. When all finally seems resolved, he faces another shock. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

One of the first episodes on television to show a couple sharing a single bed, sleeping next to each other. Around this time, TV shows could only portray couples sleeping in separate beds due to television's strict standards & practices. See more »

Goofs

When Dave finds his proof, the photo clerk tells him that he owes $1.75. A moment later though, Dave tells the policemen he owes her $1.81. With tax, it would have been $1.81. (California sales tax was 3% at the time.) See more »

Do You Know Me?

Richard Long plays David Andrew Gurney, a married man who one morning wakes up to find that his wife has no idea who is. Confused and upset, David leaves and goes to his job, but no one there knows who he is either! Now desperate, David is taken into custody and examined by a psychiatrist who thinks he is suffering from some disorder. Convinced that he isn't, David escapes, but will come to find out that not everything is as he thinks either, but even that may not be enough to end this nightmare... Richard Long is fine in episode that treads(by now) familiar ground. Fine as it is, but only the twist at the end has any real sting.
