This is about sick people, a whole series of them. From the cruel jokester who has no respect for the feeling of even the most helpless to the poor man who is ultimately victimized by him. The man is a raging alcoholic who can't even carry on for a few minutes without a drink. He has been duped into thinking the world is going to end in about three hours. The circumstances are incredibly stupid and it seems almost impossible that one could be so incredibly dense. He makes poor use of "the last moments of his life." He is unable to even accept the kindness of a stranger without a drink. He terrifies the woman. He also breaks into a sporting goods store to help fulfill the dreams of a few poor street waifs. Unfortunately, by modern standards, he could be put in jail for endangering children. The jig is finally up and what happens is pretty predictable. The episode just stretches reality a bit too far.
