Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Having crossed over from the parallel universe and into the "real" world, Iolaus II (Michael Hurst) is curious about his late, lamented counterpart, Iolaus. To fill him in, Hercules (Kevin Sorbo) tells Iolaus II a story about a "typical" day in the lives of two superheroes. Thus begins a flashback, predicated upon the theft of a cursed ruby by the light-fingered Autolycus (Bruce Campbell) -- who ends up painfully swallowing the gem. Fans of Hercules: The Legendary Journey's companion series Xena: Warrior Princess will recognize this episode as a variation on the popular Xena installment "A Day in the Life."
