Synopsis by Hal Erickson

Jerry Fogel is cast as Paul Billingham (aka Ralph Alfalfa the Happy Farmer of Chicago radio fame). Though a huge success on the airwaves, Billingham harbors a dark secret: He stutters. Now that he has been offered a TV job, Billingham is terrified that the bizarre physical subterfuges he uses to speak coherently into the microphone will be exposed -- so naturally, he goes to Bob for advice. Written by Andrew Smith, "Easy for You to Say" originally aired on February 11, 1978.
