Runaway – July 4, 1964



Sam leaps into Butchie Rickett, a 13-year-old kid on a cross country vacation with his family – Dad Hank, mother Emma and sister, Alexander. Al says Emma is going to disappear on the night of the 4th, never to be seen or heard from again. It is assumed she will abandon the family after running into an old high school friend, and a huge fight with her husband, Hank. But is there more to the story than that? While trying to figure it out, Sam has to endure mistreatment and torture from “his” older sister.

Sam Fain and Dennis are joined by Dennis’ wife, Betsy, to discuss the episode.
