(which is: "Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor") A burglar breaks into the home of a wealthy aspiring politician, and discovers his wife...awake. She in turn discovers that the burglar is handsome, educated at Yale (yes, YALE :? ) and that she's falling in love with him. (This part of the episode, God help me, reminded me of a story I read in a lower-tier men's magazine in my younger, more foolish days.) A day or so later, her brother, a physician who is also a bit of a psychologist when it comes to understanding his sister, remarks that she's got such a happy glow that if he didn't know better he'd think she was having an affair. Her happiness is short lived, however, when it turns out that a woman in her condominium complex was murdered that same night, and the chief suspect, recently incarcerated, is her burglar paramour. The burglar's an ex-con, but the investigating officer (who knows him from his previous offense) also believes he's innocent, and that he knows someone who can prove he wasn't in the apartment where the murder takes place. Problem is, the suspect won't tell who that person who can confirm his innocence is, and she (with her husband's career in mind) certainly doesn't want to say anything, either. This one has a weird (IMHO) ending...
