Storyline

Guest star Stan Tailings (Freddie Jones) is Lester's (Ian Buchanan) shot at wresting the show away from Betty (Marla Rubinoff). There are two big scenes tonight, one in which Lester dreams of hunting. He shoots a duck and wounds an angel. The other is a re-creation of the climax of Tailings's greatest screen triumph, "An Almost Innocent Man". For once rehearsal does not go smoothly, with Stan having trouble with his voice and the duck for the hunting scene, whom Betty names Doodles, is roasted in a prop electric chair and eaten by stage hands. On the air is no better, with Lester sustaining no fewer than three head injuries and Snaps the dog interfering with the film re-creation causing Lester to sustain yet another injury, this time electrocution.
