Storyline

Rob reads in the newspaper that the Segals, one of their neighbors, are the fourth and latest victims of home robbery in their neighborhood in four consecutive nights. The news unnerves Laura, Jerry and Millie. Jerry insists that Rob take one of his rifles, which Rob does unwillingly and unloaded. Thereafter, every little bump in the night Rob and Laura hear makes them believe they are the burglars' next target. Despite the extra precaution and vigilance, both the Petries and the Helpers end up, indeed, being robbed that night, with Rob and Laura's missing item being especially puzzling. Rob's connection to show business proves inconvenient as it makes a police lieutenant suspect his unusual theft is a publicity stunt, but when Laura telephones Rob at work the next day about some mundane household issues, Rob thinks he's figured out who the burglars are and tries to nab them.
