Everyone at Jeff Myrtlebank's funeral service is shocked when he pushes the coffin lid open and steps out, seemingly in perfect health. Old Doc Bolton mumbles some ridiculous explanation and the people there settle down a bit. Obviously his family is happy that he's back with them and his fiancée welcomes him as he is, with no questions asked. They do notice that he's a bit different. As time goes on however, rumors begin spread and the locals decide to take action.Written by

James Best plays Jeff Myrtlebank, a young man who was believed to have recently died, but while his family and friends attend his wake, are stunned to see him sit up in his coffin, and get out, seemingly no worse for wear, and confused about how anyone could have thought he was dead! He recovers, but seems to be a different person, as he is no longer lazy and meek, but a hard-working man who has somehow learned advanced boxing skills. He still loves his girlfriend Comfort Gatewood(played by Sherry Jackson), but her family and the whole community are not sure that Jeff isn't in reality some kind of a ghost... Highly entertaining episode has a most wry sense of humor, authentic feel for its period, and fine performances, with a gem of an ending.
