This episode revives a plot that goes as far back as the 1917 Douglas Fairbanks Sr. movie vehicle Flirting with Fate. Grieving over the death of his wife, Roger Clements (Jeffrey DeMunn) has paid an enormous sum to be murdered by a contract killer, but then changes his mind. Unfortunately, the hit man is nowhere to be found--and besides, the "contract" is non-negotiable. It is up to David (Bruce Willis) and Maddie (Cybill Shepherd) to locate the killer and prevent Clements' demise. Sound simple? Not quite: For starters, Mrs. Clements isn't entirely dead yet... Watch for episode director Alan Arkush in the hilarious "adult bookstore" scene.
