Outraged when "Alan Brady Show" producer Mel Cooley (Richard Deacon) rejects a sketch over which he has labored for days, Rob (Dick Van Dyke) angrily walks off his job -- only to become angrier when his co-writers Buddy (Morey Amsterdam) and Sally (Rose Marie) fail to walk off with him. Stewing over this presumed act of disloyalty, Rob flashes back to his first day on the job, when Buddy and Sally cold-shouldered him upon finding out that he was to be their boss. Listen for one of Dick Van Dyke's many passing references to his comedy idol Stan Laurel -- and catch that ratty toupee on Richard Deacon in the flashback sequence!
