Unusual story, has you thinking the girlfriends' theory at the end is pretty absurd, until you hear the last line; which makes you rethink the whole episode. Crafty writing.

It's Joan Copeland who appear in this episode not Joan Lovejoy.

Nickolas

Yes, that is Joan Copeland as the wife. I’d like to see her credited for this piece, she’s very good in it.

David Jensen, who is recovering from a simple posterior infarction, reads all the books he can find on heart disease and soon convinces himself that he will die, at any moment, from a massive aneurysm, the bursting of the aortic artery at a crucial spot. His doctor assures him this will not happen, but Jensen accuses him of lying, claiming that the doctor visited him one night at home to warn him about the aneurysm.
