Luther Dingle is a meek and mild-mannered vacuum cleaner salesman. He spends some time in a bar but always seems to be in the middle of others arguments and always seems to get the worst of it.

The vacuum cleaner salesman Luther Dingle is a loser and regular client of a bar where two other regular costumers go to discuss baseball, boxing and gambles.

"Mr. Dingle, the Strong" is so far one of the silliest episodes of "The Twilight Zone". The title could have been "Once a loser, always a loser" since every viewer will certainly take pity on the poor Mr. Dingle. My vote is six.
Title (Brazil): "Sr. Dingle, O Mais Forte" ("Mr. Dingle, the Strongest")
