As the sole witness to a robbery, Rob (Dick Van Dyke) eagerly heads to the local police station to offer evidence. Unfortunately, the experience so overwhelms him that he leaves out several important details -- details which he recalls only when he returns home. Wondering if his memory lapses were due to fear of reprisal from the criminals, Rob has a tough time explaining the situation to his family (and, incidentally, to himself). The name of this episode is a spoof of the pretentious, long-winded episode titles then in vogue on such dramatic series as Ben Casey and The Naked City.
