How did Rob (Dick Van Dyke) end up in jail, charged with gambling and attempted assault? An inquiring mind -- namely, Laura (Mary Tyler Moore) -- wants the whole story. In flashback, Rob recalls his efforts to stave off boredom and loneliness while Laura was out of town. On an impulse, he looked up an old Army buddy, who happened to have a job at a seedy burlesque house...and the rest, as they say, is history. The moral: Rob would have been better off watching Citizen Kane on "The Late Movie."
