A superb mechanic picks up a man that appears to be an injured vagrant and the two talk about money and the happiness it brings or takes away. The man turns out to be a billionaire who dies that night and wills his estate to the kindly mechanic. Will money bring the mechanic the same happiness it brought the billionaire? Probably.

Goes to show you, you gotta read the fine print! Nice ending!

love that low gravely voice of Leon Janney

This episode stars my wife... Morgan Fairchild. Yeah, that's the ticket.

Would you want a billion dollars? How about just 50 million? I think (as the main character does) that it would be nice to have the bills paid off, a house paid for, and some set aside (perhaps a business paid for, too). But I would get bored if I didn't have something to do, so that would likely be enough for me (although I may put enough aside for travel for a few weeks every year). Until someone gives me that much money, we won't find out if it's true or not.

A good listen.
