It's Miles Cheever's last day at work as he is retiring after 20 years of service. His boss and colleagues throw a little farewell party for him at the office and give him his going away present, a plain pen and pencil set. At home with his wife, they review his plans to empty the vault at work, which he manages to do without difficulty. It seems Cheever is leading a double life however and plans on running off with his girlfriend. When their airplane is delayed because of a bomb threat, they face the risk of being discovered.

Strictest airline carry-on policy ever
9 March 2019 | by cpotato1010See all my reviews

They won't let you put even a briefcase in the overhead, or under the seat in front of you.

Must be the fore-runner of Spirit Airlines, or Ryan Air.

Henry Jones is the only real stand out here, the rest are character actors that are mostly generic types.

It seems odd that he would retire after only twenty years at the company, he did not look that old. In reality, he was not yet 50 years old when this was filmed. Fortunately, in real-life, Henry was still acting for another thirty years or so after this.

The story seemed a little weak. Surprising, since it was written by William Link and Richard Levinson. There was not a lot of explanation for the robbery, and the ending twist was very evident. Perhaps if this had been an hour show they could have developed the characters more, and come up with a better ending.

Viewable for Henry Jones, and not much else.
