In the first episode of a two-part story, Dick Van Dyke's real-life brother Jerry Van Dyke guest stars as Stacey Petrie, younger brother of Rob Petrie. On a two-week furlough from the Army, Stacey stays with Rob and Laura (Mary Tyler Moore) -- and much to Laura's surprise, it doesn't look as though Stacey will stray any further than the Petrie living room. Clearly, the time has come for Rob to reveal the "dreadful secret" about his younger brother: Stacey is a neurotic dullard when awake -- and the supremely self-confident "life of the party" when he's asleep!
