hello, sam. oh, hi, sweetheart. we were just talking about you. mother sends her love. [ shudders ] [ ding! ] sam, we got a problem. the chair has been stolen from the cosgroves. stolen? darrin, i think you ought to know that -- adelaide blames max for leaving the door open because he didn't like the chair. they're having a terrible argument. while they're arguing, max won't sign the contract. max won't sign the contract. can you find another one? i-i'm afraid it's one of a kind. darrin, i think you ought to come home. something wrong? no. no, it's... it's about the chair. i can't talk about it on the phone. i'll be right home. anything wrong? something about the chair. well, then, go on home. maybe she's found it. i'll send louise over to the cosgrove's. she's an expert on marital arguments. she is?
7:17 am
oh, dear. mother. mother? oh, boy, you're always around when i don't need you, but when i do -- what is all that racket? that's darrin. i had to tell him about the chair. he came home, and now he's in the study fighting with it. what do you want me to do, darling -- referee? well, there must be something. i told you it was a spooky chair. and whoever or whatever it is, it absolutely hates darrin. we can't hold that against it, can we? i can. you don't suppose it could be one of our relatives? certainly not! not one of our relatives is in furniture. well, it's causing all sorts of trouble. i can't give it back to the cosgroves if it's bewitched. what am i gonna do? nothing. nothing? no, not a thing until we know for sure what it is.
7:18 am
[ gasps ] it's mr. cosgrove! call me back!

7:19 am
oh, please let me take this to adelaide. she'll love it, and then she'll love me again. oh, but, mr. cosgrove, it's only a copy. i must have it! oh, i'm sorry, but when adelaide gets angry, i just can't think straight. now, what does it cost? i'll pay anything you ask. it's very expensive -- much more than the original. now, i do appreciate this, so just send us a bill. i want adelaide to see this right away. why don't you let darrin bring it to your house? i'd rather take it myself. it's no trouble, mr. cosgrove, e forgives and forgets, the better. i'll tell tate to send the contract over to my house. thank you very much. uh... well, i guess he's gonna sign. well, if he lives. you don't think that chair's deliberately trying to blow the cosgrove deal, do you? i don't know, but that's what we've got to find out. now, darrin, you go to the antiques store. find out all you can about that chair -- how old it is, you know.

7:24 am
now, i might be able to understand if you had any sort of excuse, but... well, that's no excuse. that's nonsense. now, you did not have yourself turned into a chair because i rejected you. i told you on our first and only date that we could never be anything more than friends. sam, what are you doing? what do you think? i'm talking to the chair. ask a foolish question... darling, do me a favor. go back inside and make sure no one comes out here. yeah, all right. oh. so that's it. you're jealous of darrin, huh? oh. now, clyde, he is my husband, and i love him very much. and nothing you can do can change that, you understand? now, i'm going to give you a choice. you can either keep feeling sorry for yourself and remain a miserable, old chair, or i can change you back into human form.

7:39 am
the room filled with devices i've never seen before. can it be -- is it possible that modern science has advanced so far as to be capable of transporting a man from one century to another? well, yes, i suppose you could put it that way. that's fantastic -- absolutely fantastic. you mentioned the word "electricity" earlier. i'm -- i'm curious. i dealt with some of the natural phenomena of electricity. i -- i wonder, did anything come of it? electricity, mr. franklin. but that's -- that's astounding! it's astounding! oh, it does work. it works! oh, there were those in my day
7:40 am

[ chuckles ] come on, aunt clara. aunt clara, you have to get rid of him -- nicely, of course. now, samantha, he hasn't fixed the lamp, you know. aunt clara, he isn't an ordinary electrician. he's benjamin franklin, and he doesn't belong here. well, um, i suppose you're right. [ chuckles ] yes, i've done it again. hmm? i've gone and witched the whole thing up. oh, no, no, you haven't at all. it was just a little mistake in judgment. as a matter of fact,
7:41 am
it was a bit of the old clara, wasn't it? oh, yes, you can still teach me a thing or two. and i'm sure you can get rid of him just as easily. well, i don't know. it's much harder to reverse the spell, you know. yes, yes, i know. well, aunt clara, you just stay in here and concentrate. i'll go outside and entertain mr. franklin. yeah, concentrate. ooh, i forgot -- one tankard of ale coming up. darrin: hi, honey. hi. well, that's a fine way to greet a husband after a hard day at work. well, what's that?
7:42 am
sam, who is he? what have you done? well, it's -- samantha. oh, he's still here. i thought i had it. oh. mr. stephens, i presume. i'm proud to make the acquaintance of such a charming lady's husband and an enlightened gentleman of the 20th century. i thought i'd sent him back. i might have known. samantha! uh, darling, dinner will be ready in about an hour. d have a nice chatty evening with benjamin franklin? benjamin franklin? that's right. at the risk of your thinking me a vain and foolish old man, can you tell me --

7:44 am
instead of trying to tell all of this to mr. franklin, why don't we show him? tomorrow, aunt clara and i can take him on a tour of the town. oh, that's a splendid idea, madam. sam, no. oh. n-n-now, darrin, i think it would be much simpler, you know. have you two taken leave of your senses? in case you've forgotten, mr. franklin did not exactly get here by bus. but, darrin, no one has to know how he got here. [ doorbell rings ] i'll get that. darrin. larry. am i too early? early? for what? for anything. i'm just dropping in. tonight? yeah. how'd you guess? well, larry, as a matter of fact -- still at dinner, huh? that's all right. i'll just have a drink while you finish. hi, larry. my, it's nice to see you.

7:46 am
what are you talking about? sam, you've got a sneaky husband. oh? brilliant, but sneaky. oh. we've been racking our brains for just the right approach to the franklin electronics account -- you know, something socko, original. and here it is -- franklin himself! i don't believe i understand, sir. you wish me to lend my name to a commercial venture? terrific, terrific, just the right quality -- integrity, honesty -- let's hear some more. and this time, sprinkle in a few thees and thous -- r the old-world flavor. aunt clara, why don't you show mr. franklin how the telephone works? wonderful gadget, the telephone -- works by electricity. yes. well, just come this way. yes, uh, thank you. oh, come on, darrin. you don't need to keep up the act with me. i'm convinced. just wait till bernie franklin hears about this. he'll be tickled pink. larry, i don't think it's such a hot idea.

"ben franklin steals fire engine." this has all the trappings of some kind of publicity stunt -- the idea that a name like benjamin franklin should be involved in this kind of proceeding. as to whether the name benjamin franklin is involved or not, your honor, i believe i'm the best judge of that.
7:56 am

8:18 am
u see, uh, officer anderson, who issued the ticket to your friend, is complaining that, uh, the air force has exercised undue influence. sounds like a troublemaker to me. general peterson asked me to tell you that from now on, you're on your own. do you understand, major? oh, yes, yes. oh, nice picture of you, major. and, uh, we'll be reading the newspapers very closely. you see, even dr. bellows liked it. huh? aw. boy, listen to him, you'd think you'd committed a murder or something. all you did was go down a one-way street the wrong way. hey, that's pretty funny when you think about it. a one-way street-- [both laughing] yeah, i just hope the judge thinks it's that funny. well, you shouldn't have had dr. bellows fix that ticket. they're really mad now. when officer andson gets you in front of that court-- he's going to love you.
8:19 am
what are you talking about? just say you're sorry. have a nice man to man talk with him. yeah, i don't know, roge. doesn't sound like it would work-- well, you got nothing to lose. yeah, and i suppose it-- i could try it. i could go down to the station and ask the desk sergeant if he could put me on-- no, no, no, don't go to the station. too cold. go to his house. that's nice and friendly. nice and warm, and remember: yeah? both: be jolly nice. [???] [doorbell rings] [clears throat] uh, officer anderson? yeah? oh, hello, major. hello. what do you want? oh, i was just wondering if i could talk to you a couple of minutes. come on in. thank you. what can i do for you, major? frankly, i'd like to talk to you about the summons you gave me. oh, you would. yeah. just let me get a cigarette. tony: of course.
8:20 am
anderson: thank you. sit down, major. oh, thank you. probably more comfortable. yes, i'm terribly sorry. say, uh, you, uh-- you have quite a reputation. you, uh, i-i read the article in theme magazine last week, and it was excellent, really excellent. oh, thank you. you have quite a reputation yourself. well, that's part of the reason i wanted to talk to you. i suppose being celebrities of a sort. you mean, you came to talk to me about the ticket? yes. um... well, i wanted to apologize for what happened. you mean, you admit you were wrong? yes, i did make a mistake. you violated the law. well, i-i don't want you to think it was intentional. it certain-- but you did. yes, yes, i did, and, uh, i-- now that i've said i'm sorry, i feel much better for it. um, i'm a serviceman myself. i understand about duty.
8:21 am
well, it's certainly been nice talking to you, and-- oh, what a splendid-looking young chap. is this your son? my nephew. loves the space age. big fan of yours. oh, really? say, uh, i'll bet he would like a model of the x-15. is that an offer? oh, well, yes, yes. oh, thank you. if you would just give me his address, i could-- i beg your pardon. i said if you could give me his address, i could send it immediately. oh, that won't be necessary, major. to hear. nice boy. you just tried to bribe me. [???] [whistles] hi. oh, hi, roge. hi, hi. can i talk to you a minute? i'm-- i'm sorry, i'm kind of busy right now, i'm going to court. yeah, well, that's what i'd like to talk to you about. i'd like to go with you.
8:22 am
you don't have one, do you? i don't think i need a lawyer. well, that's where you almost made a very serious mistake. you gotta have somebody speak for you. it's just a small little case. it's a traffic case, you know. there's nothing small or simple in law, you know. what do you know about it? well, i studied pre-law before i was an astronaut. i probably could fix it up, so you wouldn't get a fine at all. hey, you did, you had a whole year of law. listen, if you can't help your best friend, why, who can you help? hey, that's right. you'll be out in two seconds. you would be a lot better than me. just let me do all the talking. n't say anything. tony: yeah. judge: you've heard the facts of the case, mr. zane. what have you got to say about it? zane: i have been stealing fruits, your honor, but i've been out of work for four months and have six kids at home to feed. as soon as i get a job, i'll pay it all back. mm-hm. all right.
8:23 am
however, i'll suspend that sentence when restitution is made. look, don't worry about a thing. just leave it to me. the meaner they are, the better i like 'em. don't do anything flashy. just leave it to me. bailiff: anthony nelson. that's us. [???] [indistinct chatter] uh, your honor, i'm representing major nelson. judge: is the arresting officer here? ah, the defendant is charged with, uh, going the wrong way down a one-way street. uh, sir, i-- we plead guilty. i'd like to pay the fine. and attempting to bribe an officer in the performance of his duty. how do you plead? could i talk to my client a couple of minutes? one minute. one minute. what's this about a bribe? you didn't tell me anything about a bribe--
8:24 am
w a model of the x-15, that's all. that's all? and he-- we'll fix him. your honor, this whole thing has become ridiculous. i would hardly call an offer of a model plane a bribe. what do you have to say to that? anderson: it wouldn't be an important bribe to you or to me, and he was trying to reach me through that little boy. how could you possibly do that to a little boy? i don't believe that you could-- oh, ahem, well, if officer anderson's going to take that attitude, my client and i are not gonna plead guilty to anything. don't worry about a thing. they made a mistake. they made me mad. since the defendant denies all the charges, does the arresting officer wish to offer evidence?
8:25 am
i object! judge: sit down. yes, sir. for the record, could you identify major nelson? certainly, your honor. major nelson is right there. [magic boings] and there. there. and there. [laughing] can you identify major nelson or not? anderson: my eyes are a little blurred, your honor, but i-i would like to show the court a motion picture i took of major nelson's confession. i think this will clear up any questions the court may have. uh, bailiff, please. [???] anderson [on screen]: hello, major. come on in.

[chuckling] yeah, sure. hey, you want to stay for dinner? no, i've gotta be going. can i use yours? oh, sure. may i have the keys, please? are you going driving, major healey? no, jeannie. i'm going straight home. i will drive you home. sure, you will, yeah.
