Neat trick at the end.

I agree; nice twist at the end

Love the twist in the end!

Didn't see that one coming. He should have called her bluff and told her to call the cops. What else did he have to lose at this point?

A formerly successful businessman finds himself in dire straits when his businesses go bankrupt, his creditors come calling, and his wife leaves. His insurance policy would cover his debts and leave him some extra to live on… but that's the trouble. You can't collect life insurance if you're still alive. Calling on his virtually identical cousin, much less fortunate in life, he pleads for his assistance in a little matter of insurance fraud.

Wow, I have listened to so any episodes that I thought I had heard all the really best ones already, but I got an unexpected surprise to find this really good one! Goodby Benjamin Flack really caught me off guard, I love that! Anyone else heard any unexpectedly good episodes to recommend?

A pretty good episode that seemed headed towards a specific conclusion, but then the surprise twist. However, I agree with Hayley that if the character was as vindictive as he seems to have been, the ending should've been different.

Yes, but is it admissible in court? I wouldn't sign a thing.
