Ever since he was a kid, Rob (Dick Van Dyke) has been a soft touch for his old neighborhood buddy Neil Schenk (Jack Carter). Neil's modus operandi is to show up unexpectedly, give Rob a gentle tap on the chin, and dole out small favors -- only to subtly suggest that Rob "return" those favors in a huge manner. This time around, the glad-handing Schenk expects Rob to bankroll an expensive project he has in mind. Can it be that, after all these years, Rob is finally going to say no, or is he going to be a patsy yet again?
