A bunch of nerves
27 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When Riley comes home with a deep sea diving helmet, Peg is naturally upset, but Riley thinks she's a little too upset and believes she's having a nervous breakdown. He gets advice from his friends, Gillis and Waldo, but nothing seems to work. Peg thinks he's behaving strangely and believes HE is the one having the nervous breakdown.

This is a humorous episode as Peg and Riley try to help each other get back to normal. Friends, doctors,and an undertaker get involved which causes each to believe the other is even sicker than first believed.

The Life or Riley may be old, but it's full of comic relief and very little seriousness.
