Good morality tale that shows guilt and conscientious will throw your life away!
4 April 2009 | by blanbrnSee all my reviews

This "TFTD" episode titled "It all comes out in the wash" is pretty well done, yet it's not one of the best episodes still it teaches a good lesson. And in the end it shows that bad people get what they deserve. It features Vince Edwards as Henry a greedy developer who's in the buying and selling business of homes and land. And Henry will do anything for a money deal even if it means cutting the throats of his clients literally and figuratively. Henry hears about a Chinese laundry place that offers to wash away guilt. Yet after taking his clothes there he soon learns that this establishment is not what it's meant to be. As slowly as he continues to swindle clients Henry learns that a heavy price is to be paid for this Chinese wash! As the guilt and bad feelings drive him crazy as finally he will throw his life away! Overall good episode of moral lessons that proves bad people get what they deserve.
