As the episode opens, Mr. Cummings is waiting in his hotel room for a call to come through from his boss. He can't take the risk of missing the call, but he has nothing to do while waiting. The only reading material he can find in his room is the Bible. After initially putting it off, he finds himself absorbed in the story of David.
Mr. Cummings is interrupted when the house detective comes to look for an item left behind by the previous occupant. He is interrupted a second time when the woman in the next room asks Mr. Cummings to help her open a window. Upon returning to his room, Mr. Cummings finds that someone has rifled through his things. When he complains about all of this at the front desk, they tell him that the house detective isn't on duty, and the woman in the room next to him has just checked out.
So, what were they looking for in his room?
