A mysterious man named Eric Finch walks into the bar one evening. He has the persona of James Bond, and does let it slip that he is indeed a spy. Diane doesn't believe his story. Sam reminds her that the bar is a place to escape from reality and if Eric wants to spin this story, real or not, there is no harm. Despite Sam's advice, Diane keeps pressing Eric, and he finally does admit that he has indeed been lying to everyone. This admission deflates everyone in the bar, including Diane, since he was only trying to escape from his hum-drum life. The next "story" he tells hits a little closer to Diane's sensibilities, and thus she falls under his tales. However, is it the truth? Will the next story he tells be the truth? Will anything he says be the truth?
