    ******CAUTION: SPOILERS AHEAD, PROCEED WITH CARE!******



    A very funny episode. Most of the action centers around the old roll top desk Rob inherits. Dick Van Dyke and Mary Tyler Moore have fun searching all the little cubbyholes and finding unusual and funny items.

    They are so convinced that there is a secret valuable hidden inside, that every little thing has a hilarious potential at being their ticket to wealth.

    The desk has things in it like a bag of "purie" marbles, a $10,000 confederate

    war bond, a crystal door knob, an old lantern full of old, but semi valuable coins.

    Dick Van Dyke, with Mary Tyler Moore's excellent assistance, are hilarious while finding the items, allowing their avarice to get the better of them.

    One classic moment is when Rob in a silly moment after they have exhausted any potential wealth coming out of the desk, decides to chance rubbing the old “Aladdin” style lamp they found. While he does so, Laura comes out of the bedroom and just as he lifts the lid, she says, “YES?” making Rob jump out of his skin! It is a priceless moment and one of many.
