Roger Shackleforth is madly in love with a beautiful young woman, Leila, who wants nothing to do with him. Monopolizing the pay phone in a diner, someone waiting to make a call refers him to Professor A. Daemon, a seller of books and various potions. When Roger learns that he can buy a love potion for $1, he jumps at the opportunity. The Professor tries to subtly warn him off but he happily buys the potion anyways. It certainly works on Leila but after six months, Roger is back to the Professor to find a solution to his new life.Written by

Listen, darling, I have to see you.
Roger, it's impossible.
I must see you, darling, must! Furiously, fiercely must! I love you.
Roger, you've got to stop this. You're acting like a baby. I can't see you now, and that's that.
Well then, talk to me. Say something! Say anything!
Say something? Alright Roger, I'll say something. Why don't you take a flying jump at the moon?

George Grizzard plays a lovesick young man named Roger Shackleforth, obsessed with the beautiful Leila(played by Patricia Barry) who barely gives him the time of day, and certainly doesn't love. Frustrated, Roger visits a mysterious merchant named professor Daemon(played by John McIntire) who sells him a love potion for one dollar guaranteed to work, but offers a warning not to use, which of course goes unheeded, much to Roger's later semi-regret... Light-hearted but ultimately frivolous episode remains watchable because of the good cast and direction, but outcome could not be more obvious; still, it's hard to dislike this entry either.
