In one of the series' funniest episodes, Rob (Dick Van Dyke) invites hypnotist Glen Jameson (Charles Aidman) to a party at his house. Jameson's specialty is using post-hypnotic suggestions to get his subjects to behave in a silly or surprising manner, and in this vein, he puts Buddy Sorrell (Morey Amsterdam) under a spell, telling Buddy that he will turn into a thick-tongued, falling-down drunk whenever he hears the sound of the bell. As it turns out, Buddy cannot be hypnotized -- which is more than can be said for poor Rob, who becomes spellbound while eavesdropping on Jameson, and who of course spends the rest of the episode alternating between "drunk" and "sober" with astonishing swiftness!
