A young Robert Redford headlines this episode as burglar Charlie Pugh, who after a shoot-out with the cops is himself wounded. In excruciating pain, Charlie visits a doctor (Gage Clarke), who fills out a prescription for pain killers. Upon learning that he has killed a cop in the shoot-out, Charlie begins to worry that both the doctor and the pharmacist (Russell Collins) who fills the prescription will report him to the authorities. Charlie's anxiety leads to two more deaths -- but only one of them is the result of violence.
