When a Chicago Bears football game is blacked out on the local TV station, Bob and Jerry book a hotel room in Peoria so they can see the contest.

Never mind where Carol got her new tattoo, nor why; her mysterious skin decoration is a great source of embarrassment, and she wants it removed post-haste.

Others in the cast include Monty Margetts as a nurse and Don Fenwick as a younger doctor. Written by Martin Cohan, "Old Man Rivers" originally aired on October 27, 1973.
