In "Beware the Quiet Man," Ann Sothern stars as a woman who decides to change her ways...unless it is already too late.
As the episode opens, Margie arrives at a bar to meet her boyfriend, but instead, she is informed that he will be an hour late. So, she calls her husband and tells him a lie that will buy her more time.
However, there is another man at the bar who wants to buy her a drink, and after a little pushing from the bartender, she agrees.
That is how she meets Lem, a private investigator. He is working on a case that involves a wife cheating on her mousy, bank teller husband. As Lem tries to impress her with the danger of his job and the violent nature of his client...Margie becomes more and more concerned about the similarities between the case he is describing and her own mousy, bank teller husband.
Did Margie's husband hire him, or is it all just coincidence?
