  • A teacher in town finds money outside a casino when he tries to turn it he gets more than he bargained for.

    One of those episodes that supply a funny twist that tells us that sometimes a great deed is not the best thing to do especially when it concerns money.

    Arthur Hill was great as William Benson, a teacher out gambling who finds money outside a casino. He puts in a security PO BOX but can't decide what to do with it.

    When he goes to the police, the cops think he stole it and then give him a strange figure that tells us that more money was involved (a big clue into how the story will end).

    It was great overall. These half-hour episodes move very quickly that ending was unique. Nowadays, people in this day and age wouldn't have done what the teacher did.moreless
