How far would you go for $500,000? Think you could manage total silence for a full year? Yeah, neither do we. But back in the day, when that was a far more unbelievable sum, spending your nights and days encased in a weird glass apartment, unable to speak, probably appeared a much more reasonable trade-off. In an attempt to shut up an overly talkative associate, an irritated man (Franchot Tone) places such a wager with said colleague (Liam Sullivan).

If there's anything to be taken away from this episode, it's that you better be sure your challenger has the loot to hold up their end of the bargain. You might find yourself in a tough spot if you opt to take drastic measures, like, we don't know...severing your vocal chords.
