Although he has grown accustomed to being insulted by his boss (and brother-in-law) Alan Brady (Carl Reiner), Mel Cooley (Richard Deacon) is nevertheless devastated when Alan loudly humiliates him in public. Disgusted by this spectacle, Rob (Dick Van Dyke) advises Mel to go into Alan's office and demand an apology. Emboldened, Mel acts upon Rob's advice -- and is promptly fired! This is the episode in which even Mel's longtime nemesis Buddy Sorrell (Morey Amsterdam) stands up for Mel's rights, casting a vote from "Mr. Jewish" against Alan "Captain Bligh" Brady.
