Out of favor with his client, the Holdwell Safe Corporation, ad executive Harrison Fell (Robert Webber) desperately concocts a spectacular publicity stunt to prove the efficiency of the new 801 Burglar-Proof Safe. To this end, he hires retired safecracker Sammy Morrissey (Paul Hartman) to attempt to rob the safe, offering the man a prize of 50,000 dollars. But Sammy balks at the prospect, arguing that he is now in another line of work...and despite his criminal past, no one can accuse Sammy of telling a lie, as proven by the ironic outcome of the episode.
