    10
    A wealthy man's wife and her lover are tired of hiding their affair. They decide to make her husband believe that he's losing his mind. At first he's confused but then he realizes what they're trying to do. So he goes along with it.



    Eventually the wife and her lover, realize that their business is losing money and they need her husband back. The husband is perfectly happy at the mental hospital where he's staying it and he's not leaving.



    Thus getting revenge on his wife and her lover, while still maintaining his happy place at the institution. I liked this episode because it was humorouos. Not all of the Alfred Hitchcock episodes are full of seriousness and mystery and intrigue. Some of them are funny, I liked this one because their intentions worked against them and they deserved it.moreless

    • [Closing Narration] Alfred Hitchcock: I hope that ending was properly terrifying. What's this? Opens bag and looks inside) Nothing but sawdust. Oh, well. Two can play at that game (pats stomach). That's all I have here. This concludes our program for tonight. On our next program, we shall both be back - me, and my shadow. Good night.

    • [Opening Narration] Alfred Hitchcock: (sitting on a life-size scale) Good evening, and welcome to Alfred Hitchcock Presents. (camera pans out and men are seen balancing Alfred's weight by putting hefty money bags on the opposite scale. Alfred turns to them) Thank you. See you next year. We thought you'd like to see this. So many of you have expressed an interest in knowing how I was paid. Now I can afford to go back to my diet. Tonight's play is about a body. (Looks down at his own body) Not mine. However, the title is "John Brown's Body."
