A mousy little man overcome with fear over virtually everything works at a bank in order to hold himself accountable for everything. His professionalism at work is called into question when he seems to appear in a surveillance video holding up another branch during his lunch break. But did I miss the resolution? Was a good episode but the flat ending was very disappointing.

SPOILER ALERT: 5' 1 1/2" Eddie Ellerby (Jack Grimes) robbed the riverside branch of the bank—with 3" lifts in his shoes. The ending just petered out: Mary Lou said Eddie didn't need to be Fred Astaire, and that she was better than Ginger Rogers—she was there. They shared a hearty chuckle. The End. E.G.'s moral of the story? "Stop acting like children. So, with fear in our hearts, let us be courageous."

Not too bad of a story until the end which wasn't a good resolution. Who really robbed the bank and where is the money? I guess we may never know...

Really good episode until the last five minutes. What the heck? *SPOILER ALERT* Who was the real culprit? Who was on the video footage? Who (or what) did Hilda see on the film? Way too many unanswered questions. I enjoyed the episode despite the poor ending, but it left a very unsatisfied taste in my mouth all the same.

Everyone is right on this one: It falls apart at the end. Too bad, because it's a pretty good premise.
