In one of the series' best-ever episodes, Rob (Dick Van Dyke) is the victim of a practical joke perpetrated by Buddy (Morey Amsterdam) and his prankster pal Phil Franklin (Lennie Weinrib). At first delighted by the notion of ribbing Rob, Buddy is suddenly seized with paranoia as he wonders what sort of revenge Rob has planned for him. With a sharkish smile, Rob insists that he isn't going to do a thing to get even -- but then, Buddy is visited by a suspicious-looking IRS agent with the unlikely name of William Handlebuck (Alvy Moore). For full enjoyment of this episode, you must put it in a paper bag, wave it around your head, and scream like a chicken!
