Harry Morgan plays an eccentric, retired engineer who is acting strangely. His niece thinks he is nuts and gets a psychologist to look in on him. What he finds is some weird string of contraptions that the old guy says are keeping the world in balance. Of course, it isn't long until the guys from the asylum show up, when a series of circumstances take place that show us the old buy isn't so batty. Morgan plays that old Colonel Potter eye twinkle thing, totally confident in what he is doing. The episode is entertaining and purely tongue in cheek.
