A man and a boy make a bet. The man says to the boy "I bet you can't light your american lighter 10 times in a row." The man puts up a fine Jaguar automobile and the boy protests - he is not wealthy, and cannot match such a rich stake. But the man suggests a stake of comparable value that he will accept. It's a little thing that the boy can surely do without...

Mrs Bixby is married to a dentist and every 3 months she goes to see her poor sick Auntie Maud. She doesn't actually have an Auntie Maud - it's a cover for visits to her lover. When he must end the affair he gives her a very nice mink coat. But how can she get the coat past her husband, who will certainly know that "Auntie Maud" is too poor to afford such a gift?

William Pearl, a strict authoritarian, passes away. His lawyer approaches his widow with a letter that requires her to make an appointment to see a Doctor Landy.

Mary Marney returns home from shopping for a few groceries, and discovers the body of her husband laying on the floor in their home. He has been bludgeoned to death! Because he was a policeman, she knows who to call, and several of his friends come to investigate. To find the murderer, they conclude, they must discover the weapon. But a search of the house reveals nothing - evidently, the murder has a leg up on law enforcement...

A young insurance salesman arrives in Barth, a new posting where he'll collect "invaluable experience." He needs a place to stay, and as the local inn is full, he chooses a bed & breakfast run by a kindly old lady in her home. She's very nice, offering reasonable terms and a sip of hot tea on a cold day. But there is something about the names of her previous guests that the man cannot quite recall... something important...

Natalia runs her husband Basil's inherited publishing empire the same way she runs his house - with an iron fist. Poor Sir Basil merely wishes to collect and enjoy his art, including several abstract pieces. Natalia also has an eye for young men, and only the interference of Jelks, their butler, frustrates her ambitions in this regard. So when she gets her head stuck in one of her husband's art pieces, and he is faced with the task of removing it, it is perhaps understandable that he has trouble deciding precisely how to use the axe...

First aired: May/05/1979
Director: Rodney Bennett
Guest star: Wendy Hiller ( Louisa), Joseph Cotten (Edward), Phil Brown (F. Milton Willis)

Edward dislikes the cat that his wife Louisa has mysteriously adopted. He also dislikes her interest in what he regards as superstition.

Louisa fears the worst when Edward returns from the rubbish fire pit, covered with scratches...

William Botibol, a passenger on an ocean cruise, decides on a scheme to make himself some money. Each night, the captain estimates the ship's progress, and the numbers 'round that are auctioned. The winner collects the pot. As the ship has encountered rough seas, Botibol decides to purchase the "low field" - a wager that the ship will make poor progress - and he spends his last $1000 on this. So when the seas clear just a little too soon, Botibol realizes he is broke - unless he can delay the ship for just long enough to win. The method he chooses suggests, perhaps, the desperation of a gambler with his back up against the wall.

Mrs. Foster cannot abide being late, for anything. Mr. Foster, on the other hand, takes a much more relaxed view - even if the face of his long suffering wife's increasing agitation, he cannot be rushed. She is off to visit friends in America, while he will spend those six weeks living at his club. As the clock ticks past the point where the driver can no longer assure the upset woman that he'll get her to Heathrow on time, Mr. Foster has just one more thing to do inside. Mrs. Foster, pushed past endurance, orders the driver away - and at the very time when Mr. Foster needed a lift...

His wife died during the war and no one seems to want tattoos any longer. Now a vagrant living from garbage cans, Drioli realizes what he has when he sees an exhibition of Soutine's work in a gallery. Revealing his tattoo, he faces a choice between a man who will pay him a small fortune to have the skin removed from his back, and another man who will treat him to a life of luxury at a hotel, where all he'll have to do is wear bathing trunks so that guests may view a "living work of art."
