    • Host: Here we have a cameo dandy. Problem: how to flee the coop. How to make tracks away from the police and unhappy peers. Ship out to safer climes. The story of a chap, who, if he had it to do over again, would have remained where he was. He finds out that he is precisely what is the title of the picture, Dead Weight.

    • Bullivant: Two bank guards, one teller, and a six-year-old child. I suppose the child was necessary? Landau: He got in the way of a bullet. What was I supposed to do, whistle it back? There was lead flying all over the place. Besides, what was a kid his age doing on the street at ten o'clock in the morning? Why wasn't he in school where he belonged? Why wasn't he in school? Bullivant: Well, I guess that'll teach the little rascal not to play hooky.

    Notes (3)

    • Music: P.S. I Love You (Johnny Mercer-Gordon Jennkins)

    • In syndication, airs with "Die Now, Pay Later". The syndication version is padded out at the beginning with footage of men breaking into an armored car company, even though the robbery described in the episode itself is at a bank.

    • This episode is based on the short story "Out of the Country" by Jeffry Scott.
