In "Call Me at Half Past," a man must prevent his unstable wife from killing him.
As the episode opens, Cliff Simmons is checking into the hotel that he visits routinely. All the employees know that he stays with them while visiting his wife, who is in the hospital. They all seem concerned about him...and his situation.
What is the situation? We find out when his wife, Fran, unexpectedly turns up in his hotel room. She isn't happy with Cliff, and she has a loaded gun to show him just how much. If he keeps talking, he may be able to stall for time. Can he?
