Episode seemed to be building to something interesting, then the ending left me feeling flat. Err, not my fave. I thought that the mystery guy was going to move from one body to he next, something like that. I figured he didn't know who he was because the two guys who accosted him on the street killed him, then he came back to life. Ah well! Thanks for posting it!

Mickey I think Sam Dann needed your input ! Your idea for a better plot line is right on. Story is flat but the performers are worth a listen. Terri Keane as a blue collar is really terrific and amazing Fred Gwynne as Muldoon is really fun. Inside joke there as Fred's character on tv's CAR 54 was FRANCIS Muldoon. The cast saves this one for me!

Russell Horton is uncredited here but plays the mysterious stranger with amnesia. Listen for him in the opening scene where he plays his own attacker with Fred Gwynne. He has one line - "what for?"

would liked to have seen the waitress get her man too. gray actors i can picture that diner
