Caught shoplifting in a big department store, Lois Callen (Coleen Gray) is brought to the office of store manager Paul Devore (Richard Long). Once he is alone with Lois, Paul offers to drop the charges if she'll do him a favor. It seems that Paul wants to divorce his wife, Kate (Rebecca Sand), but she refuses to do so knowing that the community property laws will force her to share half her belongings with Paul. Thus, Paul has devised a scheme whereby Lois will burglarize his home, stealing everything so that his wife will have nothing -- and for good measure, Paul instructs Lois to tie and gag him so that he won't be suspected of the crime. Without giving away the ending, be it noted that this episode has also be shown under the title "The Golden Opportunity."
